    Using the remote app I can see my iTunes library. Tapping on the icon takes me to the 'Now Playing' screen for my Mac , yet there is no way I can actually see the contents of my library or queue songs like I can with remote app for iPhone.

    Is this correct? Seems a rather stupid limitation..

    Go to the now playing glance, double tap on it and it will you take you to the menu. It shows all my music.

    Music on your phone though - not your iTunes library. Right?

    I think your are confusing with the Muisc App. There is no Glances for the Remote App. It is not even listed in the Companion App to configure. At least I don't see it.

    On the iPhone remote app I can see my iTunes library on my iMac , browse through music and start playing queuing /playing music.

    On the watch remote app all I can do is pause/control volume of my library music that is ALREADY playing. So I cannot browse the entire library.
    This is a significant flaw.

    I agree! For me Remote app on WATCH is useless as I need a glance for it and the ability to browse my library!

    This was one of the first apps I tried when I got my watch and I couldn't even believe how limited the Remote app is on :apple: watch...

    Way to show the world that apps on the watch are basically useless, Apple.
