Downloading apps and accessories for smart watches with Wear OS will be a little easier after the new one. Through an official blog, Google has announced a number of changes for the Google Play store, which it is introducing for this purpose.
New categories and remote application installation
Basically, digital content for Wear OS can also be found and installed from a smartphone. The Google Play store has added support for the new terms “Watch” or “Watch faces” to make it easier to find smart watch apps.
In addition, separate categories “Wear OS” and “Watch Faces for Wear OS” should be added, which will combine the most popular applications and accessories for smart watches with Wear OS. In addition, it will be possible to install this content on the watch from a smartphone.
It will work so that after pressing the “Install” button, the application or add-on will start to be installed on the paired device with Wear OS. Supported devices will be displayed below the button to start the installation.
They also improve the watch shop
Google reports that the Google Play store for smart watches with Wear OS is also undergoing modifications. The application will be visually adjusted in accordance with the Material You design, which should, among other things, simplify control via the dial.
The display of purchase information in applications, when the website with details opens on a smartphone or directly in a browser, should also be improved. The news will reach the Google Play Store in the coming weeks.
