watchOS 4.1 to bring cellular music and radio streaming support to Apple Watch Series 3


Apple has started seeding watchOS 4.1 beta, a new update that brings quite a lot of improvements to the newly announced Apple Watch Series 3. One of the features that Apple promised to bring to the smartwatch in October at the earliest, cellular music streaming is included in the new beta build.

The official changelog mentions that with the new version of watchOS, users will be able to stream any song from Apple Music or the iCloud Music Library.

Aside from cellular music streaming, watchOS 4.1 beta adds a new Radio app that gives users access to Beats 1 live or any Apple Music radio station while away from the phone or Wi-Fi.

Finally, the beta build brings a new feature that allows users to turn Siri into a personal DJ. Simply raise your wrist and ask Apple's personal assistant to play any genre of music.

The stable version of watchOS 4.1 is expected to be released as early as next month, which comes in line with Apple's previous announcement.

Apple please make a rounded bulky watch at least 43mm big. I don't like thin square watches.
