If you’re rocking an Android Wear 2.0 smartwatch, Google’s got some exciting news for you.
Googler Hoi Lam has revealed that with Android Wear 2.0, new features can be delivered to smartwatches through the Play Store when the Android Wear app is updated. The goal of this move is to enable more improvements to be released without waiting for huge OTA updates.
Google has already taken advantage of this feature, rolling out a handful of new features last week. Those new features include:
This is exciting news for Android Wear 2.0 users. Now they can get new features on a more regular basis simply by updating to the latest Android Wear app through the Play Store. It remains to be seen how often we’ll see new features pushed out, but Lam does say that there are “more to come in the coming months,” so there’s something for Android Wear fans to look forward to.
