Some older Wear OS watches will get YouTube Music, but there's a twist.

Finally, there's some good news for Wear OS smartwatch owners. Google has verified that the YouTube Music app will be available for older Wear 2.x devices. To summarise, Google's current focus is on Wear 3.0, which was first introduced on the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and is now available on a few devices, including the Fossil Gen 6, TicWatch Pro 3, and E3. The upgrade, however, will not be rolled back to any other current Wear OS devices.Google is redesigning its applications and services as part of Wear 3.0, which includes its music offering. However, YouTube Music was not included in a blog post on Wear 2.0 services, prompting to speculation that it will not be supported. But, two months later, Google has affirmed kind of that it will. There's a twist, though. Google has announced that YouTube Music will be available on all Wear 3.0 devices, including the Fossil Gen 6, TicWatch Pro 3, and E3. That's fantastic for those users, but it's not so nice for the rest of Wear OS's army. Google has said that the app will be available on some current Wear OS smartwatches, but hasn't said which or when.Wear OS has effectively become a two-tier platform. Legacy devices will have limited compatibility and will be unable to access some of the greatest apps. And all of the attention is on newer smartphones, particularly those powered by the Snapdragon 4100, which will be updated to Wear 3.0 in 2022. Of course, Spotify has updated its app to provide offline synchronisation for all Wear OS users, so anybody who has a Wear wristwatch may use it instead.
