Android Wear may rebrand to 'Wear OS' according to latest Google Play Services beta
14 March, 2018, 00:34
There's that confusion that Android Wear devices are specific to Android, yet this isn't true. Now, the company is aiming towards changing the name of the OS with Wear OS as all the new reports confirmed the same news.
While the only reasonable explanation for the logo change is that Google wants deeper Assistant integration, we do believe the change to Wear OS is a move by Google to try and de-associate wearables with Android.
Cross-checking the information, the rebranded name "Wear OS" and logo appears only with recent Google Play Services beta update (12.5 version). In the case of Android Wear, you'll be notified that there's a watch nearby that can be paired with your phone. In the post, it is clearly visible that a user received a pairing notification with Wear OS name and Google Assistant-like logo, instead of the regular name- Android Wear.
While this doesn't necessarily mean the announcement is imminent, the new discovery does seem to indicate the rebranding will happen at least by the time Android P gets released. That "W" stands for "Wear OS"-not to be confused with watchOS, the operating system the Apple Watch uses".
Whether in this form or another, news of the next major Android Wear update is expected at the upcoming Google I/O conference, May 8-10, 2018, in Mountain View, USA. The company has also changed the Google Pay with Android Pay, the company's own digital payment service with a brand new name and new functionality. - Picture courtesy of GoogleNEW YORK, March 12 - Google's Android Wear mobile operating system for wearables could be set to get a new name as well as new features, according to feedback from Android P beta-testers reported by 9to5Google.
