Now the other feature, Music Control is useful to control the current audio on your paired smartphone. With the help of it, you can play or pause the songs, play next, and play previous songs. You can also see the name of current playing songs with the official image. You have to remember that, you can’t start the songs from the Galaxy Watch Active, Active 2, or Galaxy Watch 3.
