SoundCloud launches beta app for Wear OS smartwatches – Review Geek


Music streaming service SoundCloud now offers an early access beta app for smartwatches running Wear OS. So you can now take your favorite artists with you, even if you leave your smartphone behind.

Google has been teasing a SoundCloud app for its smartwatch operating system since May, when the company tweeted a range of apps from major music streamers like Spotify, Deezer and Adidas Running.

Wear OS users can get the app by signing up to SoundCloud Beta Program. Once registered, you can download the app from the Google Play store on your smartwatch. We don’t know when the app will come out of beta, unfortunately.

As reported by 9to5Google, the SoundCloud app lets you view saved tracks, playlists, and listening history. The app can also download tracks for offline listening. It sports a simple design with buttons for pause, play, skip, and the like. Additionally, SoundCloud is not exclusive to Wear OS 3. Users with a model running the Wear OS 2 redesign can also download the beta app.
