Google finally released YouTube Music app for Wear OS watches
Earlier this year Google introduced the YouTube Music app for Samsung’s new Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch 4 Classic watches using Wear OS 3. Now it’s doing the same for older Wear OS watches using Wear OS 2.
Not all watches will be available immediately, however. The company will first ship it to selected Android smartwatches, before releasing it to multiple devices “over the course of the year” via the Google Play Store.
The first app release will come sometime this week, and will hit the Fossil Gen 6 smartwatch (version of Michael Kors Access 6 installed), Mobvoi’s TicWatch Pro 3 GPS, TicWatch Pro 3 Cellular/LTE, and TicWatch E3.

While Google may not say exactly what, these are powerful Snapdragon Wear 4100 watches. The company may still need more time to make an application with older Wear OS watches that usually have very weak hardware.
As for the YouTube Music app itself, it seems to be the same program available for Wear OS 3. Users can expect to stream music without ads, listen to selected playlists, or download their playlists and albums offline using Smart Downloads for YouTube feature.
While Google may have introduced a new version of Wear OS, most people will not see it for very long. The company could have beaten Samsung during the special Wear OS 3, after which other Wear OS watchmakers will be able to download the device to their devices.
That’s why Google supports older versions of Wear OS and newer ones, rather than locking in new features after the update of a new version. In addition to YouTube Music, Google also brought updates to older products including Gboard, the Google Play app, Google Messages, and Google Pay over the past month.
YouTube Music was much needed on the Wear OS. While Google previously supported Google Play Music on its viewing platform, killing the service without replacement left a gap in the information. Although Spotify was there, the app did not support offline play until a few weeks ago. Google support may be late, but (cliche appeal) is better than ever before.

Plant 5 is being built with a total investment of $1.52 billion (1.98 trillion won) and will have a 180,000-liter capacity, the same as that of Plant 3. This plant’s completion will raise Samsung BioLogics’ production capacity to an overwhelming 784,000 liters.
“The accelerated completion of Plant 5 will enable Samsung BioLogics to respond to increased orders from customers,” Lim said. “Currently, we have signed production contracts on 12 products with nine clients and are in talks with 29 customers over the production of 44 products.”
In addition, Samsung BioLogics plans to build a second biotech campus with four plants and an open innovation center in addition to the fifth plant. In order to preemptively respond to the ADC market, a production plant exclusively for ADC biopharmaceuticals will be built and the plant will go live in 2024.

Poll: Samsung One UI 6 Beta deserves iOS 17-like mega unveiling?
On June 5, 2023, Apple kicked off its annual Worldwide Developers Conference. At WWDC23, Apple unveiled the new iOS 17 operating system and started the developer preview, with the same Samsung should consider doing for the One UI 6 Beta debut.
Since iOS 17 isn’t a big upgrade over iOS 16, Apple managed to create the hype as always. It’s part of the company’s marketing strategy, keeping its fanbase together in support. Following the iOS 17 debut way, Samsung can also make the One UI 6 Beta unveiling a remarkable event for the Android world.

No doubt, Samsung holds an event dedicated to introducing new features of each new One UI version. However, it should also be done for the Beta activity as the tentative Samsung Developer Conference lands sometime in October each year.
Over the last few years, the South Korean tech giant started the One UI Beta Program through community posts, followed by a Newsroom article. The same thing Apple does at a dedicated event, showing off the cloned features as innovations.

Community and Newsroom articles are not a bad way to showcase new software, but a dedicated event, at least an online event should be organized to present new features and developments happening throughout the testing period, prior to the stable release.
Should Samsung unveil One UI 6 Beta like Apple’s WWDC23?

iOS 17 Vs One UI 5.1 – Comparison of top features
On June 5, Apple introduced iOS 17, a new iteration of the iPhone’s operating system. iOS 17 comes with new functions and user interface tweaks for iPhone users, and most of the features are available in Samsung’s One UI 5.1 as well as previous iterations.
iOS Vs One UI 5.1 – Comparison of top features
Samsung is yet to unveil its Android 14-based One UI skin for Galaxy devices. It will be equipped with more new and useful features for consumers, with Beta activity expected to begin next month. Meanwhile, it’s great to compare the top features of iPhone 17 with One UI 5.1.

1. Standby Mode Vs Always On Display
With iOS 17, Apple introduced Standby Mode, which turns a charging iPhone into a home hub. It’s like Galaxy users have been already using One UI as Always On Display. It gets activated when Apple users put iPhone on charge in landscape mode to show time, weather, a calendar, music controls, photos, and more.
2. Lock screen customization
iOS 16 brought an easily customizable lock screen, which Apple further refined with iOS 17. Now, the iPhone’s lock screen has more customization ways for fonts colors, and styles. One UI 5.1 copied iOS 16’s lock screen features, but it lacks the addition of a widget, which makes iOS 17 superior.
3. Quick Search
The native Quick Search feature of iOS 17 still lags behind Samsung’s One UI 5.1 software. While Apple’s OS just shows the top suggested apps in the quick search interface, the One UI 5.1 displays not only app suggestions but also Settings searches, downloads and screenshots folders, recent searches and more.
AirDrop feature is great, but only works across Apple devices, which makes Samsung’s Quick Share way to incredible. With Quick Share, you can share files easily and conveniently – not only between Galaxy devices – but also with Android, iOS, and Windows using link to share.
5. Video call effects
For a long time, Galaxy users are enjoying the video call effects feature, which is also included in Apple’s 2023 iOS upgrade. While the iOS 17’s video call BGs are limited to native services, One UI 5.1 widely offers the video call backgrounds such as third-party apps.
The image cutout feature arrived in One UI 5.1 as Image Clipper, purely cloned from Apple’s directory of features. Meanwhile, iOS 17 now lets users create and store custom stickers from images, just like the One UI 5.1 to share with others along with the ability to design AR stickers.
7. Messages Share Sheet
iOS 17 has made the iMessage app’s share menu more useful and dynamic, thanks to the arrival of pleasing transitions. On the flip side, in Samsung Messages, there are a lot of useful tools already available on Galaxy devices, courtesy of One UI 5.1.
8. Call Screening
One UI 5.1 activated the Bixby Text Call feature in English, which debuted with One UI 5.0 in just the Korean language. Now, iOS 17 is ready to allow iPhone users to do the same. This feature allows you to get a real-time transcript of the voice of caller, which One UI does better, thanks to the ability to respond too.
9. Caller UI – Posters Vs Background
Call Background is another feature, which Apple has taken from Samsung’s One UI software. With continuous upgrades, Samsung made the call backgrounds feature intuitive, which Apple smartly cloned for iPhones, giving some cosmetic changes so it feels better.
