If you are one of those who is eagerly waiting to gets it hands on the latest Android Wear 2.0, we have some bad news for you. Google has halted the wider rollout of Android Wear 2.0, all due to the last minute bug found during its final testing of the update.
As of now, the new update is running on the LG Watch Style and LG Watch Sport, which was introduced during the unveiling of the latest update and the search engine is currently rolling out the update to the Fossil Q Founder, Casio Smart Outdoor Watch WSD-F10 and Tag Heuer Connected. “For other devices, the update is currently being delayed due to a bug found in final testing,” a Google spokeswoman said into 9to5Google. “We will push the update to the remaining devices as soon as the issue is resolved.”
This is not the first time, the company has delayed the rollout of Android Wear 2.0. The update was earlier meant to be released last year but was instead launched last month. To recall, Google announced the Android Wear 2.0 during its annual I/O 2016 conference, but still, it is not able to hit the wearable section as of now.
Nevertheless, talking about Android Wear 2.0, the second attempt on the smartwatch OS ecosystem by Google is a much fresh and revamped version. We get some newly redesigned watch faces, enhanced fitness tracking functionalities, new ways to manage notifications and support for Android Pay. Now Digital Payments systems have not yet hit the Indian shores but with Samsung launching its Digital Pay Service’ in India soon we can expect Google to follow soon.
We also get ‘Google Assistant’ which can be easily accessed by ‘OK Google’ voice command or by long-pressing the home button. Apart from this, Android Wear 2.0 also brings new app launcher, smart reply for your conversations, easy access to notifications and setting with a single swipe etc. Now because, the new smartwatches from LG are LTE enabled, you can actually head out leaving your smartphone at home and still be connected with all what’s happening on your device through your smartwatch.
