Android Wear 2.0 Update Landing October 15

Android Wear is getting its first replace on October 15 to coincide with the launch of the Moto 360


Smartwatches are solely simply beginning to achieve traction, and once we say traction we imply extra handset producers making them and a few enthusiasm from the tech press; we’re not so positive shoppers are all that bothered simply but. Anyway, an enormous a part of this momentum has come from Google getting in on the motion with Android Wear, and producers making units that run this software program, together with the likes of the Moto 360, Samsung Gear Live and LG G Watch.

And now it appears Google is already prepping an replace to its wearable software program, in response to a report from AndroidPolice, citing an “unnamed supply” which the publication claims is “very credible” – and to be truthful, AP has delivered the products loads of occasions up to now. Not solely that, CNET lately caught wind of the replace’s existence (although nothing a few launch date) in an interview with Google engineering leads David Singleton and Hiroshi Lockheimer.

That replace is being fairly merely dubbed Android Wear, however that’s not essentially going to be its official identify when it arrives, nevertheless, the supply says October 15 is the day to be careful for. It will allegedly hit present Android Wear smartwatches already available on the market.

In phrases of what the replace does, little has been stated, naturally the standard field of optimisations, tweaks, and bugfixes is assumed. AP speculates enhanced Bluetooth and GPS help are potential inclusions, elsewhere enhancements to navigation and voice instructions have been talked about – definitely we’ve seen Android Wear units within the flesh and the voice management stays considerably squiffy, so there’s undoubtedly room for a little bit of fettling there. It’s thought the timing is meant to coincide with the discharge of the Moto 360 and LG’s G Watch R. As ordinary, we’ll reveal extra as we get it.
