Android Wear may rebrand to 'Wear OS' according to latest Google Play Services beta
In a bid to make it better and perhaps more attractive to vendors, the search giant is reportedly planning some changes to the wearable OS.
Interestingly, the tipster who shared the images highlighting new features, was only able to see these design changes in Incognito mode. According to a notification received by a Reddit user (via Android Police) and additional commentary from 9to5Google, the Mountain View company might be prepping a refresh of the OS with a new name and new logo. Renaming and rebranding of the device may attract consumer and will help to eradicate confusion of its OS connectivity to the iPhones and Android devices.
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. In the case of Android Wear, you'll be notified that there's a watch nearby that can be paired with your phone.
A screenshot of a beta version of the Google Play services app appeared on Reddit this weekend and showed the title "Wear OS", suggesting the company is preparing to retool Android Wear.
Other than the new name and logo, we know nothing about this mysterious Wear OS.
For a while now, it has been possible to pair an Android smartwatch with an iOS device. They might officially change the name of a device by the time of releasing Android P or during the Google I/O conference that will be held in May. The latest Android P is enabled on these watches and wearable devices.
