Google teases out more of its Material You interface design for Wear OS and also brings a major upgrade to the app and watchface installation experience from your phone.
Watch owners are encouraged to look for new Wear OS and Watch Faces for Wear OS category pages on the Play Store and are encouraged to add the words “Watch”
Users will be able to install an app for the selected Wear OS device directly from the phone by pressing an overflow button at the top of the installation button.
And here’s a look at the Play Store with the new material You Design Language on Wear OS. In addition to the revised look, Google says it redirects URL triggers and in-app purchases to your phone.
These changes have already made their way to some devices, but expect them to come to your phone and Wear OS 2.x devices in the next few weeks before a major v3.0 reboot sometime this summer.
From the phone to the wrist, new features from @GooglePlay and #WearOSbyGoogle are coming soon. 👀
The Play Store on your watch gets a new look, while it’s simplified to search and download watch apps from your phone. Learn more: https://t.co/TssBCFsCaX pic.twitter.com/tAQ5EYoa1m
