Google to rebrand Android Wear as 'Wear OS'


For a while now, we've heard reports about the shrinking Android smartwatch market. Until then what do you guys think of "Wear OS" for branding? There are entirely too many ways that Google Lens now available on the mass-based Android can be misused, and it is the company's responsibility to ensure they start taking measures to avoid that from happening.

Android Wear is pretty much at a standstill right now.

The most recent update to Android Wear in December 2017 brought a "Touch Lock" function for locking the screen to prevent random taps when using devices underwater, as well as improved power efficiency and compatibility with new languages.

A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for portions of central and eastern Kentucky from 2 a.m. until 9 a.m. High temperatures were in the upper 60s and lower 70s, but a cold front will move towards the area Sunday.

Google's Android Wear mobile operating system for wearables could be set to get a new name as well as new features, according to feedback from Android P beta-testers reported by 9to5Google.

If you're an iPhone owner, the word Android generally means something isn't compatible with your phone. Fashion brands continue to release new hardware running the OS, but it's been a hot minute since a major tech company has put any real time or effort into releasing new products with it.

Instead if devices are under the Wear OS name, it makes it far more palatable for those with iPhones and want to have a different device to the Apple Watch. The reason for this is probably due to neutrality, same reason that Android Pay was rebranded to Google Pay which is because Android Pay could be used on Apple phones.
