The now playing portion of this app used to be completely inaccessible, but as of version 8.4.92 this has now been fixed. VoiceOver can now see and interact with all controls on the now playing screen.

Also, the Digital Crown turns volume up or down.
Still prefer the now playing app to skip tracks and control the volume
Please tell me guys which of these two: Apple Music or Spotify is better? I use the trial period on Apple Music and I like it as it resembles me the traditional way of listening: just find your CD and play. Is spotify better, though the pricing is mostly the same.
Any pros and cons are welcome.
I would say you try both and choose the one that most convinces you. I guess the main difference is the interface and the integration with iOS. I think unless you're looking for a specific artist that might be exclusively on one platform you will find what you're looking for on both.
I haven't tried Apple Music, but having Siri gives it an advantage.
Spotify has a free mode that you can try, and they also offer promos in which you can use premium three months for 0.99.
Version 8.4.92 of Spotify lists VoiceOver improvements in the watch app as part of the What's new, and sure enough the app works great. Also, this gives you a workaround for the bug introduced recently in the main iOS spotify app where VoiceOver does not see the button to connect to a remote speaker, as the watch app also has this feature where it now works fine.
