Google’s Android Wear Team: We’ll Update Early And Often – Yahoo News

As for the guitar-playing program: “We would have never thought of that.” He won’t say exactly how many apps there are, but offers that “thousands” of the more than 1 million programs in the Google Play store — where consumers download apps for their Android devices — have been updated to support Wear.

CNET Google showed off the platform at its I/O developer conference in June, with demos on using the software to order food or hail a ride from a smartwatch. But the company has until now been mostly quiet about what’s next. Google is readying “several” updates to Android Wear before the end of the year, with the first coming this week. Some features on the horizon include the ability to pair a smartwatch with a Bluetooth headset, Singleton says. Watches with hardware that supports GPS capabilities will also be able to use geolocation data to track their fitness sessions. So, if someone taking a handphone terbaik run wanted to listen to music but leave her phone at home, she’d be able to store some songs on her watch, and listen to them through a set of Bluetooth headphones. Android Wear will also let third-party developers design their own watch faces — which is what a wearer sees first when glancing at the watch — and let owners download them from the Play store. Customized watch faces — like ones that display current scores for a favorite sports team, or ones that show a certain company’s stock price — can be easily swapped out.
