YouTube Music app for Wear OS is now available but as of now only for New Samsung Smartwatches

Google's YouTube Music app for Wear OS is out now, several months after the company promised to provide one. That's fantastic news for Wear OS users who have been waiting for it since Google terminated Play Music in 2020. However, there's a significant 'but' here: it'll only operate on Samsung smartwatches that run Wear OS 3.

Samsung is one of the biggest smartwatch manufacturers, so it must provide a variety of options; however, this isn't the case. The only Samsung smartwatches capable of running YouTube Music on Wear OS aren't even available yet. Samsung's Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic will be available on August 27.

Aside from its severely limited compatibility, the app also lacks the ability to stream music. Users will only be able to download tracks on the app, according to 9to5Google's hands-on experience. Furthermore, to download anything, the phone must be plugged in. It also states that most existing Wear OS devices will not be upgraded to Wear OS 3, so if you want to access YouTube Music on your wearable, you're out of luck.

The Play Music app for Wear OS watches was discontinued in August 2020, just weeks before the service was totally phased out in exchange of YouTube Music. It was quick to release a YouTube Music app for the Apple Watch, but Wear OS users had to wait. Spotify's Wear OS app, on the other hand, works on earlier smartwatches and can be used to stream and download songs.

The app is currently accessible on Google Play for individuals who aren't worried by the limits and will soon have access to a Galaxy Watch 4.

Samsung to Launch Its New Virtual Assistant: Sam

  While virtual assistants have been around for a while, Samsung is expected to introduce a new 3D virtual assistant to the next generation. The company may officially debut this character as 'Sam.' The brand's virtual assistant is currently a 2D character, but when a new dimension is launched, it may return with a new dimension. Like many other firms, the South Korean digital company has officially launched a 2D virtual assistant. The company, however, has opted to produce a three-dimensional variant to take the trend to the next level. The answer is simple: 3D characters are more appealing to the eye. As a result, once Sam arrives, people are likely to forget about Bixby. Although the character is currently two-dimensional, it has experienced a significant transformation since returning to social media. Samsung's new virtual assistant, on the other hand, will feature additional textures, positions, and expressions. The company's goal is to make its virtual assis
