Android Wear 2.0 Postponed By Google: Specs, 2017 Release Date And More
Google has just announced to the public last Thursday that its upcoming Android Wear 2.0 will be postponed for a 2017 release. As of now, it will go on in pushing a new developer preview that puts Google Play as an addition to the platform.
Google stated that the preview has received mostly positive feedback from the developer community. The company further stated that it "decided to continue the preview program into early 2017, at which point the first watches will receive Android Wear 2.0".
Getting To Know Android Wear 2.0
Google also released on a statement that developers can now develop apps that can only be used for smartwatches. Also, Google stated that users can manually update as well as uninstall apps using the My Apps view on the Android Wear 2.0.
Android Wear 2.0 was announced by Google last May 2016, showing that it is the epitome of a much improved version of the smartwatch software. A new user interface was introduced, and the widgets are called as "complications". It also features a new messaging keyboard as well as new improvements to Google Fit.
The incorporation of a new array of smartwatch apps will make Android Wear 2.0 be more independent from smartphones. It is also worth knowing that Android Wear Apps of the past require a smartphone to properly function.
Surely, Google is doing the best of what it can to effectively compete with the other smartwatch manufacturers out there such as Apple and Fitbit. With the latest release of the Apple Watch Series 2, Google might be aiming to compete with them by developing a new software that will give an edge to its own devices, as well as its partners.
