    Nope you can't. You have to use Spotify for that

    Not with Google Music. You can store music on your S3 and play it through the speaker or a BT device connected to your S3.

    Thanks for the replies. I was hoping with data connection we would be able to stream Google music. Spotify direct rate very well, but might give it a try.

    I wouldn't hold your breath. Google wants people to go with Android Wear. Luckily for me, I've got both accounts.

    I'm interested in this thread as I am thinking about getting a gear s3 to pair with my S7. Not being able to work with GPM would be a deal breaker for me.

    One option I am reading about is using an app called Musicmate to automatically keep your chosen GPM playlist or songs in sync to any other music player on your phone (eg Samsung Music Player). They are saying this then can be synced to your Samsung Watch.

    Has anyone with an S3 tried this out? Does it work? The goal here would be to have the playlist in your watch play completely autonomously from your phone.

    So I use Spotify in addition to GPM so I don't really need this, but I figured I would give it a shot. I can confirm that it works. Downloaded an album from GPM by using music mate and then transferred the tracks to my Gear S3 using the gear manager. It then was able to play independently of the phone. Hope this helps!

    Awesome. Thanks for reporting back. I think that would be a great workaround for me.

    Worked perfect!! Was able to install the app on phone and selected play lists from my Google Play Lists rather than albums etc. Songs transferred over to my Gear S3 Frontier LTE VZW. Had to reboot the gear then all songs appeared on Gear!
