YouTube Music is Google's subscription music service (following the closure of Google Play Music ). The service competes directly against Apple Music, Amazon Music and Spotify, which just a few days ago enabled the option to download music on watches with Wear OS .
So far, YouTube Music did not have an application for Wear OS , but Google has remedied it. The company has released the official YouTube Music app for Wear OS, but it has done so to a very limited extent. Why? Because, for now at least, it will only be available on the new Samsung Galaxy Watch4 and Watch4 Classic .

It also allows you to control music playback, manage downloads, and 'like' songs right from your wrist. Note that YouTube Music playback appears to be limited to 128 kbps AAC .
