After a few months of waiting, the Deezer app for Wear OS smartwatches has now officially arrived.

First teased back in August by the streaming service, its new app allows users to access their library and playlists and also tap into offline playback directly from the wrist, it announced in a blog post.

Like many apps on the revamped Wear OS 3, Deezer's has been overhauled to fit the new software - partly, we expect due to Google's more stringent demands on apps hitting wrists.

The result is a dark-themed streaming app akin to what we've seen from the retooled versions of YouTube Music and Spotify

However, unlike that pairing, the Deezer app is only available to Wear OS 3 smartwatches, which includes the likes of the Google Pixel Watch, Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 / Watch 4 and the odd Fossil Gen 6 spinoff device. 

With the list of compatible devices growing all the time, it's likely this won't be a huge issue for many Deezer subscribers, though those trapped with Wear OS 2 will surely be disappointed by the lack of access.

For those who can, however, there appears to be plenty to enjoy on the wrist. If you're a Premium ($10.99/month) or Family ($17.99/month) Deezer subscriber, you'll get access to the service's Flow feature - a mix of your favorites and new recommendations - plus you won't have to experience ads while you listen.

Deezer also has a free tier of the service, and you can access this from the wrist, but it's relatively limited; there's no support for offline listening, and you'll also be hit with ads. 

All in all, though, it's good to see another high-profile app hit the Google Play Store - the library is now shaping up to be much more competitive to the likes of Apple's watchOS.
