Apple Watch fills the void left by iPod

Smartwatches
Hey, Siri, play some sad music. [MUSIC] I used to wear an iPod Nano on my wrist years before the Apple Watch existed. I liked it cuz I could listen to music on it, and I could also listen to radio. Apple Watch's latest music update does add the ability to finally stream music via LT or WiFi. And it also has radio. There's a new radio app that exist in addition to the music app. So basically, does stores music, but it's also a little streaming Siri activated music player. This is how it works. Apple Music on Apple Watch actually operates independently from the iPhone Apple Music apps. So. Already if you're gonna be using it before the update, it shows downloaded playlist and albums and songs that you put on there. But the new update also allows you to browse the entire music catalogue that's in your iCloud music library. And if you're an iPhone music subscriber, you can also access the rest of the music in the catalogue. But to do that, you're going to have to use Siri. Play the Tron soundtrack. Siri is the way that you handle any additional requests on the Apple Watching. Asking for a particular artist or a song or a genre. Play something I like. Or anything that you can also do with Siri on the phone, but here, there's no way to type requests. You're either gonna have to use Siri or you're gonna have to go back to your phone. Now for browsing music or for other suggested music, there's the new radio app, which is where you can find Beats One, and a lot of Apple's other streaming music stations that basically act like curated playlists. And there are a couple of radio stations as well, there's ESPN, there's NPR, and there's CBS News. Now if you wanna be able to download stuff, you can. This is only for streaming, you're gonna have to go your phone later and plug in your Apple Watch and charge if you wanna sync things. One shortcut is that you use these stations kind of like curated playlists. When you listen to them, if there's something that you like, you can hit star. Or if you wanna add to your playlist, you can hit the plus sign. You are gonna have to get used to juggling tutor from music apps on the Apple watch, which is a little bit strange. If you're trying to request playlist, they show up in the radio app. But if you're going to be listening to music in your own collection, it shows up in the music app. And you now get any two shortcuts to your music apps on your Apple watch, one for music, and one for radio which means one less shortcut for something like weather Even though there are quirks, it actually worked better than I expected. Apple hasn't made any specific claims on streaming music and battery life on the Apple Watch, but I played music, off and on, via streaming for about a full day, and I need to recharge by dinner. I do have a watch update with music streaming, should be hitting soon. It's a good step forward, but you're gonna have to be patient, and you're gonna have to use Siri. [MUSIC] Play my music.
