Is YouTube Music available for Apple Watch?
No. Currently, YouTube Music is only available for iPhone and iPad devices. Also, there is no update on when YouTube Music will be launched for WatchOS. However, you can use Apple Watch to control YouTube Music playing on your paired iPhone, only when they are in range.
Control YouTube Music
(1) Ensure that your Apple Watch and iPhone are in range. At the same time, Apple Watch must be on your wrist to control the app.
(2) Launch YouTube Music on your iPhone and start streaming your favorite song.
(3) The name of the selected song will appear on your Apple Watch. It also comes with three controls to
- Play previous song
- Play/pause the current song

For more options, tap the three dot menu icon on the bottom right corner.
As an Apple Watch user, it is disappointing to hear that there is no support to stream YouTube Music. But, we can expect Google to launch the native app for Apple Watch very soon. Till then, we can use Apple Music or Spotify to hear songs right from the wrist.
