Google to deliver faster Android Wear updates from PlayStore

Google to deliver faster Android Wear updates from PlayStore

Explained in more detail by Google Employee Hoi Lam, new features can be added to devices running Android Wear 2.0 thanks to a quick update from the companion application via the Play Store.

Hoi Lam's post on Google+ reads, "With Android Wear 2.0, new features can be delivered through the Play Store, when the Android Wear app on your watch is updated".

The team hopes to be able to improve and add to Wear 2.0 without the need for a full OTA, and Lam promised more updates like it in the coming months. Unfortunately, Android Wear has failed to cultivate true interest since its 2.0 release in February.

The company made use of this feature for the first time last week, when it rolled out a range of improvements to Android Wear.

Moreover, this was further confirmed by a Googler, and he posted on G+ about the same, the updates will now get delivered from Play store, making them quickly spread across many users. " The new upgrade also adds the option of third-party chat app support in Contacts, reduce accidental entry into the watch face picker". There were no Android Wear related announcements at Google's big event last week.

If you're in the market for a new hybrid smartwatch or Android Wear watch, today could be your lucky day.

Android Wear was an ambitious project by Google and its level of success seems to vary depending on who you ask.
