    Default Control Music

    Hey all.

    On Watch OS 2, I was able to swipe up from the bottom and control the playback of music/podcasts/etc. I can't figure out how to do that now. Any pointers?

    Open the music app on your watch. It's there.

    So I can no longer swipe up on the watch face to control that stuff?

    On your iPhone, open the Watch app, go into Dock, and make sure Now Playing is in your dock.

    On your Watch, press the side button to bring up the Dock.

    What is the difference between "Now Playing" in your dock on the watch and the music app itself?

    “Now Playing” gives you quick controls for Back/Play/Skip, while showing what’s currently playing (similar to the old Glance, and what you get in Control Center on your iPhone).

    If you tap the name of the song within Now Playing, you’re taken to the Music app.
