You can now listen to your favorite artists on SoundCloud with a Wear OS smartwatch. The SoundCloud app for Wear OS is rolling out to users on the beta channel and you can try it out by enrolling in the SoundCloud beta program.
Early last month, Google announced that new apps from SoundCloud and Deezer would be available on Wear OS smartwatches later this year. SoundCloud has now finally released its Wear OS app on the beta channel. The SoundCloud app for WearOS (version 2022.09.07-wear-beta) rolled out on the beta channel earlier this week. To try it out on your Wear OS smartwatch, you’ll need to sign up for the SoundCloud beta program at this link. After signing up for the beta program, you should be able to download the SoundCloud app for Wear OS from the Play Store on your smartwatch.
No phone, no problem.

After installation, you need to connect to your SoundCloud account to start streaming music. You can do that via your phone or via the internet. After logging in, the app will show the playback UI. It has a play/pause button with a stylized progress bar around it, next/previous track buttons, a button to change the output device or adjust the volume, and a like button.
Swiping left on the playback screen takes you to the library page with shortcuts to your favorite songs, history, playlists, and suggestions. At the bottom of the library page you will find a Settings button. The Settings page is pretty barebones at the moment and just gives you the option to sign out of your account.
