The Apple Watch is a very remarkable wristwatch. From both a health and a smart standpoint, this small and compact wristwatch gives an excellent performance. Despite the fact that it is an Apple device, it provides a number of fascinating customising possibilities. And, if you wish to leave your iPhone at home on some days, you may listen to music through headphones directly from your watch. You may sync your Apple Watch with songs, albums, and playlists. Isn’t it fascinating?
You’ll be able to listen to your favourite tunes (or podcasts) while running or walking if you have a pair of fully charged truly wireless headphones. Alternatively, you may listen to music straight on your wristwatch. It provides a smooth experience in both directions.
Now that we’ve got everything out of the way, let’s look at how to upload music to your Apple Watch and listen to it.
HOW TO ADD MUSIC TO APPLE WATCH FROM YOUR IPHONE
One of the requirements for adding music from your iPhone is that the track should be available on Apple Music.
Step 1: Open the Watch app on your phone and head over to the My Watch tab at the bottom.
Next, scroll down until you see the option for Music.
Step 2: Once done, tap on the Add Music button under Playlist and Albums.
Now, you’ll be redirected to Apple Music to select the music tracks.
Step 3: Search for the songs and tracks you’d like to add and once you have zeroed on one, tap on the little three-dot button at the top. Next, tap on Add to Album.
Carry on like this for the rest of the songs.
Once you set the Apple Watch on the charging pad next to your iPhone, the music will be queued up and uploaded to the Apple Watch. Isn’t it simple?
When you’re listening to a new song on Apple Music, pick Add to Album from the three-dot menu. The tracks will be put to the default album automatically. All you have to do now is choose and sync.
PRO TIP: The Apple Watch includes a built-in feature that automatically adds your most current music to your watch. Toggle the switch next to Recent Music if you don’t want to use it.
You may also add an Apple Music playlist at the same time.
How to Delete Music from Watch
Added the wrong song? You can easily remove it.
Just swipe left on the song and hit the Delete button.
How to Check Storage
The Apple Watch now has a limited amount of storage. Along with the audio songs, the loaded apps consume a significant portion of the device’s internal storage.
Thankfully, there’s easy-to-access storage to keep you from going crazy.
On your phone, go to Settings > Storage in the Apple Watch app.
The watch will analyze the storage and give you a clear picture in a couple of minutes. From there on, you can decide to add new songs or remove a few existing ones.
HOW TO ADD MUSIC TO APPLE WATCH DIRECTLY
Interestingly, you can add songs and albums directly on your watch as well. However, the small screen may be a tad less comfortable compared to your phone. Nonetheless, it’s possible.
Step 1: Tap the crown of your Watch to go to the App page. Select and open the Music app.
Now, play a song of your liking.
Step 2: Tap on the three-dot button and select Add to Library. And that’s about it.
The next time you place your watch on its charging cradle, the selected tracks will be added right away. At the same time, do make sure that the Watch has a proper connection to the Internet.
HOW TO ADD MUSIC FROM SPOTIFY
Step 1: On your watch, open the Spotify app through the app page.
Step 2: Now, zero on the song you want to download and tap on the three-dot menu.
Next, select Download to Apple Watch.
Unlike Apple Music, you will see a green arrow next to the downloaded music. Cool, right?
HOW TO DOWNLOAD SPECIFIC TRACKS FOR GYM
That’s right, you read that correctly. You may listen to customised gym music while working out at the gym by downloading it. Isn’t it fascinating? These choices are also available directly via the Apple Watch app.
Step 1: On your iPhone, open the Apple Music app and open a Playlist. You can either search for one or pick one from the home page.
Next, tap on the three-dot menu at the top and select Add to Library.
Step 2: Next, open the Watch app and scroll down until you see the option for Workout.
Next, select Workout Playlist, and all the saved playlists will be displayed as a list. Select one.
This playlist will automatically play when you start a workout on your phone or when your watch detects a workout.
For now, there are two customization options. You can enjoy songs or shuffle them to ply in a different order. Cool, right?
SHAKE A LEG
So that’s how you can add songs and playlists to your watch and listen to them. To listen to your favourite tunes directly from your watch, all you need is a suitable set of earbuds.
