Google’s representative, product director Dennis Troper, talked about the upcoming large-scale upgrade of the operating system for Wear OS wearable devices. First of all, changes will affect the design of the system, as well as some basic functions will become even more accessible and convenient to use.
Especially interesting is the update of the notification system. To see them you just need to swipe up. Developers implemented an advanced quick response feature that now allows the system to understand the context of the notification and propose a suitable short answer.
Improvements will also affect Google Assistant. In particular, he received quick access – to call him enough to swipe from left to right. In addition, the assistant has become smarter, he is able to book an air ticket or hotel room, tell you about the weather in the place where you go, and make plans for the day and remind them about it. And, as you use, the assistant will understand you better.
Redesigned and built-in fitness application Google Fit. To start the training you need to swipe from right to left. In the new version of the application, you can see rings that show the user’s activity and points of cardio training. Also Google Fit has learned to give recommendations on the exercises.
Swap down traditionally brings up a menu with wireless connections, where you can now activate the Find a Phone feature and Google Pay.
Update Wear OS is worth waiting for in September this year. There is a list of models of smartwatches that will not receive the coveted update. They were: LG G Watch, Samsung Gear Live, Moto 360 (2014), Sony Smartwatch 3 and Asus ZenWatch.
