With Android Wear, Google asserted to have brought the simplicity of Android stages to smartwatches. Presently today, Google has reported that Android Wear is no more. In any case, don’t fear, it’s not dead – it’s simply getting another name. Meet Wear OS (or Wear OS by Google/WBG).

The move may appear to be absolutely restorative, however it makes a distinction. With the name Android Wear, Google had erroneously tied any smartwatches running the OS to Android telephones, when they weren’t really Android-selective. As Google itself says: “In 2017, one out of three new Android Wear watch proprietors additionally utilized an iPhone.”
What’s more, that is precisely what it’s wanting to do with Wear OS. iPhone gadgets won’t not get similar highlights that Android gadgets do by means of the wearable programming, yet despite everything they’re bolstered.
Numerous individuals found out about the name change sooner than anticipated, after a Reddit client posted a screen capture of a push notice which obviously demonstrated the name Wear OS and the new logo.
Other than the difference in name, we’re as yet indistinct about whether Wear OS will convey any new highlights to the stage. Rather, we hope to discover more at Google’s yearly engineer I/O gathering in May.
