SoundCloud, a music sharing and streaming service, teased its smartwatch app last month. Now, the company has released a beta version of its app for its Wear OS smartwatch. You can install it on Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 5 series devices.
The SoundCloud app for Wear OS smartwatches lets you listen to music and even save it for offline playback. The UI is centered around the play/pause button. Other options include buttons for previous track, next track, volume, likes, and library. You can browse your favorite tracks, playlists, and even listening history in the Library section.
Since the app has been released in beta, it is not technically available to all users. However, you can install it after clicking ‘Become a Tester’ on this webpage. This app is not exclusive to Wear OS 3 watches like the Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 5. It even works on Wear OS 2 smartwatches from other brands.
The app situation on the Wear OS platform is slowly improving. Google and Samsung jointly developed the Wear OS 3 operating system. This new OS offers better performance, many new features, and better integration with the Android ecosystem of devices.
