Final Android Wear 2.0 Preview Brings Back iOS Support

Posted by at 3:13 pm on January 24, 2017

Google today made the final preview of Android Wear 2.0 available to developers.

Google is expected to release the new wearable platform to the public — alongside new smartwatches — at some point in early February.

The company hopes developers will use this final preview to tidy up their apps ahead of the platform’s debut. Apps compiled using this preview build will be considered ready for Android Wear 2.0 at launch.

The primary addition to this build of Android Wear 2.0 is support for iOS, meaning iPhone owners will be able to use Android Wear smartwatches with their iPhone.

“Android Wear apps running on watches paired with iOS devices will be able to perform phone hand-off flows such as OAuth and RemoteIntent for launching a web page on a paired iOS device,” explained Google in a blog post.

Other last-minute tweaks include new navigation drawer behaviors and several bug fixes. Google has not said exactly when the delayed wearable operating system will be announced.
