Google finally released YouTube Music app for Wear OS watches

Published

on

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.

OnePlus Brand Logo

Samsung has a wide range of smart home appliances, including pro-grade TVs, dishwashers, vacuum cleaners, microwave ovens, and air purifiers. Everyone is aware of the futuristic functions of Samsung’s home appliances range, but OnePlus used it to troll the Galaxy S23 and made a silly comment.

During the Galaxy S23 launch event, OnePlus USA trolled the S23 Ultra and said that a director can make any camera look great. Since the company is going to release the OnePlus 11 next week, it’s showing off its flagship which is quite cheaper than Samsung’s.

OnePlus didn’t stop trolling Galaxy S23 but commented that Samsung just makes “great” dishwashers, vacuums, TVs, microwaves, washers, and air purifiers. No doubt OnePlus praised Samsung’s smart range of home appliances but with a cryptic intention.

OnePlus trolls Galaxy S23

Anyways, it shows rivals getting jealous seeing the immense response of consumers toward the Galaxy S23 series. The company expects double-digit growth in Galaxy S and Z series sales this year, which is giving rivals sleepless nights.

I recommend OnePlus PR team buy a Galaxy S23 Ultra to use for promotion and criticism. Of course, the Galaxy S23 Ultra would help them record the launch show of the OnePlus 11, so it can further reduce the price of that smartphone with on-paper flagship specs.

Pro Tip: Samsung’s Galaxy A53 smartphone is available with up to 4 Android updates and five years of security patches. Compared to OnePlus 11, it cost about half, so why not, save expenses by preferring a Galaxy upgrade over a Galaxy device.

Here’s why you should buy Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra

Samsung S foldables sales

Samsung recently introduced its new flagship smartphone lineup, the Galaxy S23. The company has started the pre-ordering of the phone, which has received a positive response from the customers. It seems Samsung expects more from these devices as it targets double-digit sales of the Galaxy S and foldable series this year.

TM Roh, at a press conference held at the Chase Center in San Francisco after the Galaxy Unpacked 2023 event, showed confidence in growing the company’s presence in the global flagship smartphone market with its latest Galaxy S23 series phones.

He expressed that he expects the Galaxy S23 series and the upcoming Galaxy foldable smartphones, which should be Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5, to reach double-digit sales compared to last year’s Galaxy S22 and Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Flip 4.

The president of Samsung stated, “We expect this year’s annual sales of both the Galaxy S and foldable lineups to grow globally by double digits compared to last year.” He further added, “Despite the unfavorable economic conditions, our premium strategies will help us lead the market“.

On the other hand, the economic slowdown in the global smartphone market has recently led to a sharp drop in demand. As per market researcher Canalys, annual global smartphone shipments are set to fall 12% to less than 1.2 billion units in 2022.

Samsung smartphone sales were not different. Due to lower smartphone shipments in 2022, its mobile business saw a decrease in the profit earned. Samsung heads to a massive drop in its operating profit for the fourth quarter of 2022 to $351.7 billion, down 16% year-on-year.

It will be worth seeing what effect the Galaxy S23 series has on the customers and the market. Possibly what the company is expecting for these smartphones is right as they come with many worthwhile upgrades be it design or their internals or the software.

GIF Remaster

The new GIF Remaster feature allows Galaxy device users to bring perfection to the GIFs created or shared by anyone else. It unlocks the possibility of sharing the most valuable and best quality GIF with friends and loved ones by improving the low-resolution file.

Using artificial intelligence, the GIF Remaster feature sharpens each frame of the GIF. It greatly enhances the quality of GIFs, no matter whether someone else created it or shared it with you. Once available, the GIF Remaster feature would be a part of the native Gallery application.

So, if you have some GIF files that you want to be in a clear format, get ready for the One UI 5.1 update. As soon as it comes, the Gallery app will let you remaster the GIF to enhance the sharpness and noise by removing the compression noise which lessens the resolution of GIFs.

Apart from emojis and stickers, GIF is a sweet famous way to share a tiny clip that lacks sound and takes space as small as a regular image. GIF is the greatest option to share short-term video clips that don’t require audio/sound alongside.

Photo Remaster

Samsung already brought the Photo Remaster feature to the native Gallery application. It allows you to enhance a photo you’ve recently captured on your Galaxy device. Through the Gallery app, you can improve any image with just a few clicks.
