Apple today seeded developers with the second beta build of watchOS 4.1 for testing on the Apple Watch. In the build, Apple has added new emoji also featured in iOS 11.1. This comes nearly two weeks after the first beta surfaced.

If your Apple Watch is registered under a Developer account, navigate to the Watch app on your paired iPhone and tap the “My Watch” tab. From there, go to General > Software Update and you should see the build ready for download. Be sure to place your iPhone on Wi-Fi while downloading this software as it’ll surely gobble up plenty of your data.

In the first build of watchOS 4.1, Apple added the ability to stream Apple Music right on your wrist alongside enjoy radio stations made in the service. Music is controllable via your fingers or with your voice thanks to Siri. We’ll let you know of any additional changes.

watchOS 4 arrives with new watch faces including a smart Siri face alongside those featuring Buzz, Woody, and Jessey from the popular Toy Story franchise, new fitness workouts and challenges, a full-on Apple Music app, and peer-to-peer payments like in iOS 11 with Apple Pay Cash.
