WatchOS 4.1 Is Available! You Can Finally Stream Music on Apple Watch

But the wait is over! WatchOS 4.1 is available to the public now. This watch update allows cellular users to stream Apple Music right on their watch, as well as a new Radio app that lets cellular watch users play live internet radio stations like Beats 1 and ESPN.
