Google Play Music gets important experience improvements on Wear OS
Shortly after announcing the rebranding of Android Wear to Wear OS, Google released a new update for the Play Music app that's running on smartwatches. Although there aren't too many changes included in the update, they are important enough for those using Google Play Music on their Wear OS smartwatches.

The newest version of Google Play Music offers an improved experience thanks to the addition of the options to shuffle music and see what's playing next. Also, Google implemented a new download indicator that should help music lovers see what songs are available to download right to their smartwatches.

There might be some other minor changes, but these are all that have been mentioned by the search giant. Since Google doesn't say when the update is going to hit Wear OS, we must assume it's already available for download via Play Store.

So what? It’s still the best smart watch available.

Explain how please; does Apple Watch have a keyboard? Does it have an always on mode, where people can actually see the time? Does it allow you to download new watchfaces? Where exactly is the advantage of the Apple Watch against Wear OS? Apple Watch being the best smartwatch is an unsubstantiated rumour that solidified by tech sites and people's common and often mislead perception that whatever Apple does has to be the best. But when we compare Google OS and Apple Watch side by side, there is nothing that a Google watch cannot do that Apple Watch can. LTE, heart rate sensors, NFC payments, you name it.

Why did you feel the need to bring up Apple in an article that couldn't have less to do with apple? This whole "my team is better than your team" nonsense is so childish. I'm happy you like your Apple watch, truly, but understand that it's not better for everyone. Enjoy your tech of choice and stop being such a child about it (and this applies to all fanboys on whatever "team" you seem to favour.)

Why don't you fix the bugs and add some new fresh features to the mobile app?
