The world of music streaming has changed considerably in recent years, with sites such as YouTube Music becoming a must-have for many music fans. YouTube Music provides a full musical experience with its large catalogue of songs, playlists, and podcasts. But what if you want to listen to music offline, especially on your Apple Watch?
To begin, it is critical to note that YouTube Music does not yet enable offline playback on Apple Watch. This implies that you can't immediately download tracks from YouTube Music to your Apple Watch for offline listening.
This limitation is a bummer, particularly for people who rely on their Apple Watch for music during workouts or other activities when carrying a phone isn't ideal.
This does not preclude you from listening to music on your Apple Watch when offline. Apple Music, Apple's own music streaming service, lets you download songs, albums, and playlists directly to your Apple Watch for offline playing.
This function is quite useful for individuals who wish to leave their iPhone at home while going for a run or going to the gym.
But what if you're devoted to YouTube Music and its distinctive offerings? There is, however, a fix, if a bit complex. Convert your favourite YouTube Music tracks to MP3 files, import them into your iTunes collection, and sync them to your Apple Watch.
Remember that this approach should only be used for personal use and should not be used to distribute copyrighted content.
You'll need a trustworthy YouTube to MP3 converter for this. There are several free and paid options accessible online. After converting your songs, launch iTunes on your computer and input the MP3 files.
Then, sync your iTunes library with your Apple Watch by opening the Watch app on your iPhone, heading to 'Music,' and then 'Synced Playlist.' Choose a playlist and it will be saved to your Apple Watch for offline listening.
While this solution allows you to listen to YouTube Music offline on your Apple Watch, it is not the easiest. It also doesn't allow you access to all of YouTube Music's features, such as curated playlists and personalised recommendations.
When YouTube Music does not yet allow offline listening on Apple Watch, there are methods to listen to your favourite music when not connected to the internet.
The option is yours whether to switch to Apple Music for its flawless integration with Apple Watch or to use the workaround of turning YouTube Music tracks into MP3 files. Hopefully, YouTube Music will expand its offline features to include Apple Watch in the future, making music even more handy and pleasurable.
