    So, I'm still kinda new to the Apple world...this is my first major update. After upgrading to OS11 and OS4, I'm getting this "Now Playing" screen on my watch when I'm streaming music on my phone. I can't figure out how to get rid of that screen all together or can I? Shouldn't I be able to turn that screen option off on my watch?

    Thanks!

    There is a way, but for the life of me, I can’t recall the steps I took to prevent “Now Playing” from displaying when streaming music via my iPhone. When I saw your post, I started playing a song via Music to see if it was still disabled and thankfully it was. If I remember what I did to get it to stop showing, I’ll be sure to post it.

    Open the watch app on your iPhone, go to General > Wake Screen and disable Auto-Launch Audio Apps.

    It's also is the same place on the settings app on the watch itself, FWIW.

    I absolutely love this feature BTW.

    I don't remember seeing this feature before the update but I like it, especially when it shows music sources other than Apple Music.
