Wearos native app

Feature description:

Love the app very much I even bought it before the trial ended. I use it with subsonic/navidrome and it fullfilled almost all my needs after searching alot and going through alot of apps.

That said would it be possible to have a wearos native app?
It can be as simple as just having the functionality to download playlists/albums and playing those playlist no need obviously for editing/adding new playlists or other stuff that would be difficult to do on a small screen anyways.

Problem solved:

I often have my phone in my backpack while jogging/hiking or strapped to my arm when in the gym so changing playlists would mean stopping what im doing retrieving the phone then doing whatever i wanted. If there is a native app on wearos that means i can leave my phone entirely at home/in the locker as all i need would be on the watch.

Brought benefits:

Wearos smart watches are becoming more and more popular so alot of people would benefit and im sure having a wearos version would attract more users in the future too.

Other application solutions:

The obvious streaming apps like spotify, yt music etc. that support downloads.
There is an app for kodi and an app for qnap nas that also supports streaming and downloading for offline use.
None of the apps I found support subsonic api though thats why im requesting this feature.

Additional description and context:

I’m also a dev myself so I can imagine how difficult it can be but just wanted to ask anyways in case you already had plans for something like that. I can also test any beta/alpha versions in case you dont own a smartwatch with wearos.

Thanks for your work on the app

There’s mid terms plan for that but, I first need to achieve better ranking on Play Store to try to reach some kind of financial stream, Play Store is harder than even to rank and users on Android do not want to pay so retention rate is lower than other and Google think it’s bad indicator …

Second point is that the Google Wear review team is the worst and most stupid team of the universe and will be too dumb to test the app if there’s anything complex like a server configuration screen …
