I am unable to download Google Play Music app from wear OS on my Ticwatch Pro 3 GPS watch. Further, I am unable to download Spotify songs/playlist on my watch even after having Spotify premium account. Pls help.

Google has removed the Play Music app for Wear OS after cancelling the Google Play Music service. It is transitioning over to YouTube Music, but there is no YouTube Music app for Wear OS yet.

The Spotify app for Wear OS is just a remote control for the app on your phone. It does not support local playback.

There are several solutions mentioned here in the forums that others have used to copy local media files to their watch and play them back.

Garry - can you post some alternate solutions (links) since it is difficult to search this forum. I've tried media download, but that does not return anything useful. If you type music, you get an ignore response because music is too generic... Would be very appreciative if you could provide some solutions....

NavMusic has been mentioned several times with people having good success with it. I have used it a few times personally and it seemed to work well, but I haven't used it heavily myself. Here's a link to the Google Play store:

The reason I haven't used NavMusic real heavily is that I typically listen to audio books on Overdrive rather than music when I'm out on a run. As I was searching for this post I discovered that the developer for NavMusic (TurnDaPage) has also released NavBooks, which syncs your audio books from Overdrive to Wear OS. I'm going to have to check that one out too!

That's why I don't like using online music services like spotify or google music. I prefer to use online sites. I can download and listen anytime even when offline

Try to download songs from Spotify to your PC with TunesKit Spotify Music Converter, and then manually move the music files to your Ticwatch Pro.

YouTube Music now supports offline playback and they just released a version for WearOS 2.
