Apple Watch allows you to do a variety of things without your iPhone near you, such as listen to songs, read and send messages, and even answer calls. But if you want to do something like watching a video, you will probably need your phone properly, not anymore. With WatchTube, you can get YouTube videos directly from your Apple Watch.
WatchTube is a new software that, as the name suggests, allows you to view virtually any YouTube video on the Apple Watch. The best part is, it works as expected.
The app doesn''t require any complicated settings, and it will not involve a setup process from your iPhone. WatchTube and use it directly from the watchOS App Store. Simply open it and youre ready to watch YouTube videos.
The interface is unusual for a complicated platform as YouTube. The app will show four parts in the app: Home, Search, Library, and Settings. Similar to the official YouTube app, Home is shown video that is currently trending on the platform. If you prefer, the app allows users to choose a specific category of videos to display on Home.
The built-in search for Apple Watch Series 7 keyboard works particularly well. Also, you may also use dictation and scribble to search for a video in the app. Similar to the real YouTube, WatchTubes search shows the top results for videos and channels.
Users can even subscribe to channels and save videos to find them later in the Library tab. Unfortunately, the WatchTube library is completely local, which means that you cannot link it to your YouTube account. Fortunately, the app provides a QR Code so you may share and access a specific video on another device such as your iPhone or iPad.
