Did you know you can listen to your digital music collection right from your smartwatch? Besides being able to place calls and dictate texts, you can rock out to your  favorite songs and playlists with the MyMusicCloud app on Samsung’s new Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo, and Gear S smartwatches.

So how does it work? If you’re a MyMusicCloud user, you already know you can store all your music for free in our cloud and play up to 250 songs on any laptop or desktop, tablet, and smartphone, regardless of brand. Now, it’s easy to sync our music app to your smartwatch too.

STEP 1. Make sure you’ve downloaded the Samsung Gear Manager app onto your smartphone and that it’s synced to your smartwatch. The Gear Manager controls how your watch looks, and which apps you can download to it.

STEP 2. Turn on your Bluetooth and open Gear Manager on your phone. Select Samsung Gear Apps and click on the Category tab. Tap “Entertainment.” The MyMusicCloud app is available for free here in Samsung’s Apps store.

STEP 3. Download the app, and make sure it appears in your My Apps window by tapping “View App in Gear Manager.”

STEP 4. Open the MyMusicCloud app on your Samsung phone, and just go to “My Apps” on your smartwatch to launch our music app. Now you can choose songs or playlists from your collection to play, rewind, or pause by touching the watch face. (As always, you’ll need to have uploaded your music to our cloud beforehand using a desktop, laptop, or tablet.) You’ll also need a Bluetooth headset to enjoy your jams.

Available in a variety of colors, the Samsung Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo and Gear S smartwatches cost $299 with most U.S. carriers, such as AT&T.  Although they use the Tizen operating system and not Android, our MyMusicCloud app is also available for Android devices in the Google Play store.

Besides enabling you to place calls and text, you can now rock out to your entire digital music collection like a boss.

That’s because the watches feature a new MyMusicCloud app, so you can access all your music from our cloud. Jam to Jack White, bliss out to Passenger, spin to Beyonce or whomever you love via your Samsung Gear 2 and a Bluetooth headset.

So how does it work? If you’re a MyMusicCloud user, you already know you can store all your music for free in our cloud and play it on any lap or desktop, tablet, and smartphone regardless of brand.

Now, when the MyMusicCloud app is open on your Samsung phone, just launch the MyMusicCloud app on your Gear 2, and choose your songs or playlists by touching the watchface. (As always, you’ll need to have uploaded your music to our cloud beforehand using a desktop, laptop, or tablet.)

Available in charcoal black, gold brown or wild orange, the Samsung Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo smartwatches use the Tizen operating system (not Android) and cost $299 with most U.S. carriers, such as AT&T; buy one along with the Samsung Galaxy S5 smartphone and you’ll get $50 off the bundle.
