Does your Apple Music "heart/love" button work on Apple Watch?

    Because mine doesn't, even after 10 taps.

    Oddly, this didn't even work in the Apple Music app on my iPhone yesterday. Today, suddenly, it worked. But no go on Apple Watch.

    Anyone else with this problem? Any idea how to fix it?

    Not working for me either. Pretty sure Watch needs software update.

    It's obviously a bug. But given the fact that the heart even showed up at all on Apple Watch tells me a watch software update may not be necessary. After all, the "play" glance (or whatever its official name is?) is simply an extension of the Music app on iPhone, just like all other Apple Watch apps/glances are "extensions" and currently bundled alongside iPhone App Store apps.

    WTF... just as I was writing this, I decided to try it again. Try tapping slightly ABOVE the heart icon and see what happens...

    In other words: it *does* work.

    Looked again on my devices and noticed that I can't heart even on my iPhone. Might have something to do with iOS 9 beta 2. ;)

    On my Watch when I press the heart button it gives me three choices: Play more like this, never play again and add to wishlist. The first two are greyed out. Adding to wishlist at least works though.

    But good if it works for you. I guess you have 8.4?

    Yep I'm on 8.4. I get the same options you describe except they're not greyed out. But iOS 9 beta users should be getting an update next week that fully enables Apple Music. You'll likely have to wait for that one.

    Where do you guys have hearts? My interface looks exactly the same as it did before 8.4.

    And what does the heart do? Save to favorites or something?

    I assume that last one is the watch (obviously I was only asking about the watch, this being the watch forum and all). So you can't skip and back and forward anymore? Hehe, kind of glad that didn't make it to mine.

    I don't have a heart icon on my Apple Watch. It's a rewind symbol.

    I think the hearts are linked to For You feature, more hearts more for you artists added etc.

    NOTE
    I will never suffer from a heart attack, because I don't have a heart (according to my wife)

    How do you start a station on the watch? I cannot see this option!

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I noticed that when I had the songs in my music already (songs that were purchased previously) I can't click on the heart. I do see that it becomes pale when I click on it, but it does allow me to like it. Probably because it's already "liked" in the backend as it's a song already owned.

    I get the star all the time and it's beginning to piss me off. How do I get back the rewind icon back for my purchased music and playlists?
