    Forgive me if this question has been asked and answered before. For those of you with watch OS 4.1 beta, is the feature back where I am able to access my music on my series 1 when connected to iPhone via blutooth?

    I think most of us running 4.1 beta are running it on series 3 LTE, unless I'm mistaken. On series 3 LTE the feature is there but I don't know about series 1.

    I hadn't realized this ability was back. Very happy it is.

    Please let me clarify. I have AW3 LTE and running watchOS 4.1 beta. It allows me to stream music that's in my library as well as any and all songs from Apple Music. If it's loaded already I can manually select it on my watch face. If its not, I have to tell Siri to play it.

    Well, I’m running iOS 4.1 Beta on my Series 2 and the ability is not back... not sure it’s only limited to Series 3 Apple Watches

    I can confirm that streaming works on a Series 3 non-LTE Watch, too. I have access to my library and the Radio app, including custom radio stations.

    That's cool for AW3 GPS owners!

    The watch will use iCloud music library / Apple Music. It's not actually the same as before where you were accessing the music library on your phone through the watch.

    Correct. There's no way to distinguish between songs you’ve added to your library AND downloaded to your phone vs songs you've added and HAVE NOT downloaded.
