As per the official release notes for the latest developer-only watchOS 4.1 beta that can be found on Apple’s Dev Center, the forthcoming software includes new capabilities like an all-new Radio app that supports cellular streaming on Series 3 models.

Here’s an excerpt from release notes accompanying the download:

With watchOS 4.1, you can stream music, giving you access to any song from Apple Music or your iCloud Music Library, straight from the wrist.

The new Radio app also gives you access to Beats 1 live or any Apple Music radio station while away from your phone or Wi-Fi.

And you can use Siri as your personal DJ. Just raise your wrist and ask Siri to play anything from Reggaeton hits to Top 40 tracks to French Garage Rock.

Here’s our hands-on video walkthrough of watchOS 4.1 with the new Radio app and Apple Music streaming.

    This is gonna be sweet!

  • Elegido

    how can i install if i’m not developer???

    • You can’t and you won’t be able to because Apple does not provider watchOS betas through its public beta software program

      • Elegido

        but in the previous version, I installed a profile and I could install the ios betas and apple watch … is there any way to be able to install this profile again? maybe for my iphone?

      • Blip dude

        Well then it should still work the same way as last time shouldn’t it??

      • burge

        If you do t know what you did to install the beta then you shouldn’t be using betas.

      • Do what you’ve done before again 😉

  • Leigh

    Is this for cellular only ?

    If I am on my WiFi, will this work over WiFi instead? I would think so.

    Would be nice to have ringtones with this update

  • Anyone knows if the WatchOS is running more smooth in this version? My Series 1 is very laggy.

    • Wilber Alexander Flores

      I have a series 0 and honestly it feels way smoother. Not series 3 smooth but smooth 🙂

      • I had the Series 0 and it was a little slow compared to the Series 1 on watchOS 3.
        After I installed the OS4, it became slow again. But I updated for watchOS 4.1 yesterday and now is running smooth again.
