Can apple watch play music
Listening to music from your Apple Watch is a convenient option whether or not your iPhone is handy. But how you listen to your favorite songs on your watch depends on your model and OS version. Any Apple Watch running watchOS 4.1 or higher will let you listen to albums and playlists created on your iPhone. You can also listen to music-streaming apps like Pandora, Spotify, and iHeartRadio, as well as Apple Music (if you're a subscriber).
If you own an Apple Watch Series 3 or newer, you can do all the above but also link to Apple Radio and any music you’ve synced through iCloud. You can also stream music directly from the cloud. Let's look at the different ways to listen to music on your Apple Watch.
First, make sure your watch is running the latest OS. Open the Watch app on your iPhone or the Settings app on your watch. Go to General > Software Update. The app will tell you that your software is up to date or it will prompt you to download and install the latest update.
Pair Your Watch
Next, you'll need to pair your watch with Bluetooth earphones or a speaker. To do this, make sure your Bluetooth device is on and in pairing mode. On your Apple Watch, go to Settings > Bluetooth. Your Bluetooth device should be listed and go into pairing mode. Tap the name of the device. The status should then indicate that it's connected.
With any Apple Watch, you can sync your albums and playlists with your watch. If you don’t have any playlists, you can easily create them on your phone if you wish. On your iPhone, go to Settings > Bluetooth and make sure Bluetooth is turned on.
Open the Watch app on your iPhone, open the My Watch section, then tap on Music. You can then enable Recent Music to automatically add music you’ve listened to recently. Next, tap Add Music and locate any albums or playlists you wish to add. Choose one and tap the plus (+) icon at the top, then connect your watch to a charger and allow the music to sync.
Listen on Your Watch
Segue to your watch and press the Digital Crown to jump to the home screen. Open the Music app and flip through thumbnails of albums and playlists. Tap the Library entry and browse through all the playlists, artists, albums, or songs that you added to your watch.
Tap an entry you wish to hear. You can play and pause the music, jump to the next track, or go back to the previous track. Adjust the volume by turning the Digital Crown.
You can also listen to music from your iPhone through your Apple Watch. In the Music app on your watch, swipe to the top until you see the screen that lists On iPhone, Now Playing, Radio, and Library. Tap On iPhone, then you can swipe through all the albums and songs playable through your iPhone.
Listen to Apple Radio
With an Apple Watch Series 3 or newer and watchOS 4.1 or higher, you can listen to stations from Apple Radio. From the home screen, tap the Apple Music icon. Swipe through thumbnails for the different stations or tap the Apple Music 1 radio station to hear the current live broadcast.
To play custom radio stations on Apple Radio(Opens in a new window), you'll need to enlist the aid of Siri. Play one on your watch by saying "Hey Siri play my [station name] radio station." Your watch then starts playing the station. Apple Music subscribers can take advantage of an entry called Stations, which will let you listen to different stations by genre.
Listen With Siri
In addition, Apple now offers a special voice plan priced at $4.99 a month, accessible with iOS 15.2 or higher on your iPhone. With this plan, you must use Siri to request songs and albums in Apple's vast universe. Think of a favorite song, not one already contained in your own library.
Say "Hey Siri, play [name of song]" or "Hey Siri, play the album [name of album] by [name of artist]" or "Hey Siri, play [name of artist] music" or "Hey Siri, play [genre name]." As long as that song is in Apple Music, Siri should accommodate your request.
