    Since updating to watch OS4, I notice when I'm playing music in my car with carplay (spotify), the watch switches to a music player app.

    Is there anyway to stop this from happening? I don't want to see any music controls on the watch.

    Thanks!

    I hope someone answer your question. Have the same issue here. I hope there is a toggle in the settings for that. (I looked and did not find anything)

    On your phone - Watch App > General > Wake Screen > Auto-launch Audio Apps. Turn this to off and it will stop the music app from taking over.

    I don’t see this on my watch app with series 0. Is this limited to a certain series?

    I'm running the original Apple Watch and it shows up.

    Thanks for the info. After a reboot of the watch, it now shows up as well.

    Does the phone have this as well? Sick of apple playing from the Apple Music on its own just as the OP said.
