New interface for Wear OS
The upcoming month Wear OS will receive a new software update. However, this update will take some getting used to for many users, because the interface is being tackled firmly. When you later swipe through your Wear OS smartwatch, you will encounter different windows than you are normally used to.
The new system will soon work as follows. From the start screen you will soon have to swipe and press as follows:
- Swipe right: Google Assistants feed
- Swipe left: Google Fit
- Swipe up: notifications
- Swipe down: Quick Settings shortcuts
- Long press on the watchface: change watchface
- Short button press: all apps
- Long button press: Enable voice control for Google Assistant
Notifications easier to reach and new buttons for Quick Settings
The Google Assistant feed is another big change in the operating system. It shows information about your day, such as the weather, your appointments and other personalized things. Swipe left and you will get the new interface for Google Fit. This one works with two new rings. The notifications are now easier to find by simply swiping up. By swiping down you will reach the Quick Settings. It also adds two new shortcuts. So you can now find your phone and the other button is for Google Pay. It is not yet clear which version of Wear OS this will be. An exact date is also not yet known, except that the update should come to new smartwatches with Wear OS sometime in September.
