LIS­TEN TO MU­SIC OFF­LINE (EVEN WHEN YOUR PHONE ISN’T IN RANGE)

HWM (Singapore) - - LEARN -

The lat­est An­droid Wear up­date en­abled off­line mu­sic play­back via Google’s Play Mu­sic app - that means you can store au­dio tracks on your watch and lis­ten to them even when your phone is out of range.

Start by open­ing Play Mu­sic on your phone, then head to the Set­tings screen and scroll down to the Down­load to An­droid Wear op­tion – en­able this to start sync­ing songs over to your smart­watch. Songs, al­bums and playlists can be marked for off­line lis­ten­ing, just note that most smart­watches don’t have a huge amount of stor­age space, so you’ll have to be se­lec­tive with what you trans­fer.

Once you’ve synced your mu­sic, go to the Play Mu­sic app on your watch. You’ll see a list of songs you’ve synced. You can swipe down to dis­play dif­fer­ent playlists, or swipe left on the cho­sen playlist to start play­ing it on shuf­fle. Swipe left again and you’ll get to the track list­ing, which will let you pick a spe­cific track to play.

Note that very few smart­watches have their own speak­ers, so you’ll have to pair a set of Blue­tooth head­phones with your watch to lis­ten to mu­sic.
