To download the YouTube Music Wear OS app a user just needs to open Google Play Store first on a watch and search for YouTube Music. Select the app so that the download begins. Once installation is done, one can log in to an account and start listening.
One can only download songs while the smartwatch is plugged into a charger.
The YouTube Music app first appeared with Wear OS 3, which was introduced last month on the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 series.
