watchOS 4.1 :: Listening to Beats 1

by Volker Weber

That was easy. Upgraded to watchOS 4.1 last night, opened the new Radio app and started the free Beats 1 station. Watch connected to Airpods and it just works, over WiFi or cellular. I am not an Apple Music subscriber, so I am hoping that Spotify might one day come out with a watchOS app.

Do I need an US Appstore Account for that? Can't find the app on my watch after update.

Found it out, it's a watch series 3 only feature.

You can play Beats 1 for free on your iPhone as well. It’s in the Music app.

The Music App does not even offer streaming of WDR5 or NPBS radio stations and I can not add any streaming feeds.

Nice. Jetzt unterstützen auch die T-Mobile Business-Tarife die Option "StreamOn" als kostenfreie Zusatzoption. Das würde dann ja in Verbindung mit Apple Music bedeuten: Beats 1 unterwegs vom Handgelenk solange der Akku trägt...

Ceci n'est pas un blog

I explain difficult concepts in simple ways. For free, and for money. Clue procurement and bullshit detection.
