The Google Home app is now available on smartwatches with Wear OS (spoiler: the app can only be installed on the Pixel Watch and Galaxy Watch 5)
Google announced the Google Home app for smartwatches yesterday, October 6, after the Pixel Watch presentation.
Here's What We Know
The app is already available on the Play Store, but unfortunately, it can only be installed for now by owners of devices with Wear OS 3 and above. That is, we're talking about the new Pixel Watch, as well as the Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro rugged smartwatch with a titanium case and body temperature sensor for $450.

Sadly, it only works on Wear OS 3 and above. I tried sideloading it onto a Wear OS 2 watch, but it failed because it requires SDK version 30 and above (Android 11+). pic.twitter.com/gUUXp4ytko
Thanks to the new app, users will be able to control smart devices in the home directly from their watch. For example, lights, thermostat, speaker, etc.
