hi, I currently subscribe to Tidal Hifi as I get a substantial discount.

Is there a way to control it using my watch like I can with Apple Music? There doesn't appear to be a Tidal AW app and The only thing I can do control the volume. I'm slightly annoyed as I have workout playlists and would like to be able to use my watch to control my music during my workouts.

Can anyone help?

As far as I know you can use Back and Forward under the "Now Playing" option for the Apple Watch. Up to this point there's really no Apple Music alternative for the Apple Watch.

I currently have Apple Music along with the YouTube Red both under the Family Plan. I doubt Apple would allow more openness of Music Subscription based apps for the Apple Watch.

I can't even go back and forth between tracks, I can only adjust the volume.

Disappointing. I like Apple Music but as I said I get quite a nice discount on Tidal but if I cancel I can't get it back again if I sign back up.

Thanks for responding.
