Apple releases first watchOS 4.1 beta, adding Apple Music support

Apple has released a first beta of watchOS 4.1 to registered developers, adding the promised Apple Music support. The feature promises users the ability to stream any song from Apple Music or their iCloud Music Library directly from their wrist, and also adds a new Radio app for access to Beats 1 live or any other Apple Music radio station, even while away from an iPhone or Wi-Fi connection. According to the release notes, this initial beta doesn’t yet provide support for ESPN or cellular connections in the Radio app, although it seems Apple intends to address both of these issues in future betas. The release notes also do not specify if Apple Music support will be limited to only certain Apple Watch models.
