    Having just bought the AW4 I was surprised to learn that Spotify wont work on a standalone basis (AW only functions as remote).

    Before subscribing to Apple Music, just want to check if there are other similar services out there that I should consider?

    Many thanks!

    Apple Music is the only music service you can use on the watch if you want to store music on it. That’s why I just subbed to it and keeping my google play music. Sucks I’m. Paying for both but google also gives me YouTube premium as well

    That’s helpful thanks. Apple Music only has its own radio stations right? So there is no way to play my favourite radio stations?

    ? Not really sure I don’t use that feature. I guess so ? If you mean like radio stations like you can get in your car then no you can’t . Only app that offers that is iheart radio?

    Does iheartradio work with Apple Watch? I’m not in the us and you can only download from us App Store and I’ll work out how to do this if someone confirms that it will work with AW4. Thanks

    Pandora has announced they will soon have a standalone app for Apple Watch!

    Probably not ? I really don’t know what you mean by radio stations lol. Like the ones on Spotify and so forth or traditional radio stations you’re looking for ?
