Control your favourite mobile music player from your watch.
Provides more features and a smarter user-interface than the stock controller, and is compatible with more music players. It also features a brand-new music watch face.
This app works for a TRIAL period of 4 days, after which you must PURCHASE the LICENSE from within the mobile app.
A watch app, and supporting watch notifications enable you to perform these functions: Play/Pause, Previous, Next, Volume-Up, Volume-Down. The experimental Play... function allows you to play in any supported App, or start a Playlist.
There is also a choice of user interfaces: Sparse for use when running and walking; Compact for use otherwise. There is also a Voice Command option for use when driving or cycling, allowing you to speak commands to skip track, start a playlist, or decrease volume etc. For example, just say "OK Google; Start Music Controller", and then "Turn it up". The full-screen notification can be changed to a card from the phone settings.
HOW TO USE:
1) ENABLE NOTIFICATION LISTENING PERMISSION from phone.
2) Play music!
The watch app can be started manually, or by voice: "Ok Google, Start Music Controller" (note: using voice commands will stop your music temporarily!).
Song title and artist information is shown, where available. Album artwork is shown where available for users of KitKat and above, JB users only for music stored on mobile. Track progress information, plus other extended information such as BPM is shown where available.
