Google can rename Android Wear to Wear OS

The user Reddit with the nickname H3 × 0n noticed some changes in the Android Wear application.

What is known

The logo of the program has changed. It was stylized under the letter "W" in the usual color gamut of Google. In addition, changed the name of the application to Wear OS. Do not be confused with watchOS - the operating system for Apple Watch.


Rebranding the program seems quite logical, because "smart" watches on Android Wear can be connected not only to Android-smartphones, but also to the iPhone. So with a new name there will be no confusion. Also recently, Google changed the design and name of the Android Pay application to Google Pay .

When to expect

Most likely, the "Corporation of Good" will tell about the new application on Google I / O 2018 .
