The newst update v6.0.1942S of Google Play Music brings greatly improved control over the downloaded albums or playlists that sync with your Android Wear, when connected. Yu no longer just have the all or nothing option, where the check of a box told Play Music to either send every single thing you have downloaded to your watch or your watch gets nothing. Instead, you can tell Play Music which albums and playlists you want sent over.

Now, users get the option to select which songs they want to sync and which audio file they want to exclude. It comes bundled with Android Wear companion app vserion 2.0 with download manager for music that is synced to your smartwatch.

The indicators fills up as the tracks sync and you can just tap any of the choosen song in order to remove them from syncing.
