On Wednesday, Apple launched watchOS 4.1 developer beta 1. The accompanying note confirmed that users will be able to stream any song from Apple Music or the iCloud Music Library, which includes tracks purchased from iTunes and songs matched with iTunes Match. Using Siri, users can request genres to create custom stations on the fly.
Users can stream music with GPS and Bluetooth headphones. They can also expect about four hours of uptime. watchOS 4.1 will also include a new Radio app, which means that users will also have access to Beats 1 live or any Apple Music radio station over LTE.
To access radio stations beyond Beats 1, users must sign up to the $9.99/month Apple Music service. iTunes Match, on the other hand, will cost users $24.99/year.
Based on initial independent reviews, Apple Watch Series 3 is an excellent device even before Apple Music and iCloud Music Library streaming was added. However, it is not entirely independent of an iPhone due to its short battery life when using its own LTE radio.
