Is there an app or is the watch capable of playing videos?
Discuss if you feel it should be there.Im thinking "why not".
No it can't play video. And you wouldn't want too. You have your iPhone with you which has a nice large display as well as your arm gets tired.
I'm thinking feature with no reason.
Watching videos on a watch? LOL don't be ridiculous!
It would most certainly kill the battery of your watch and phone as well.
1. Pull up YouTube on your computer or iPad.
2. Prop up iPhone in front of screen.
3. Use Camera app on the Apple Watch.
Voila, YouTube on your watch!
Didn't mean that.But I just thought that maybe it can be done.
No way... here is why not:
I'd love to be able to play a TED talk etc. type video on the AW. Watching that type of video without holding up a device while moving around would be great.
You can watch videos sent through text.
Including a you tube link?
Yes, I was surprised to see this and believe it only applies to iMessages and doesn't support standard text videos but could be wrong.
I'm waiting for someone to ask why there is no photoshop/final cut pro x, iMovie, and adobe aftereffects apps on the apple watch.
No, unfortunately links don't work.
Don't worry it won't be to long till people run business's on it.
You have your phone for texts, emails and everything else on the watch too. So thats not a valid excuse.
Can I design a house in AutoCad on the Apple Watch?
If you have a security camera it could be useful to check the video at a glance
I assuming your talking about the comment I made on people's arms getting to tired to watch videos on watch so I will address that.
Phone calls are not a problem because your arm goes back to normal position.
Texts are quick and brief interactions.
Emails are again quick and brief.
Everything else pretty much goes along the lines of quick and brief.
I'll tell you "why not", because there will be 1000000 threads about s%^t battery life, not lasting past 10am.
Remember, once again.. It's a WATCH! not a tablet or smart phone.
Uhhhh...no. Not what it was designed for. Other than pure novelty or for kids sneakily watching stuff covertly doesn't fit the intended use.
You can check your security camera through app on the Watch, if it support Apple Watch. Kevin Lynch demoed this on March event. And I would bet that in time we will be able to FaceTime too.
But YouTube? Nah...
YouTube on the Watch
Looking for any developers to chime in on this.
I'd love to browse through the my YouTube Subscription feed and either save videos for later, or the ability to send a video to my Apple TV.
Is AirPlay to Apple TV open to developers using the watch?
Of course, the iPhone would have to do any heavy lifting, but I think if this is possible, surely Google will be working on it.
