Android Wear Gets Interactive Watch Faces, Google Translate

By 02:59 Tue, 27 Jul 2021 Comments

Today Google has announced the next update for Android Wear. When it arrives on your particular smartwatch, this will bring some fascinating recent features with it.

First off we have interactive watch faces. So with a tap the watch face you're using can change its design, reveal more information, or launch a specific app. For example, a face that gives you the current temperature aside from the time may want to let you tap on that in order to acquire a more detailed forecast.

This obviously works for anything, though, be it a fitness-focused watch face or the recent one Google calls Together. This lets two people stay connected to each other by basically making the entire watch face a space for sharing stuff with each other - photos, emoji, or even their current activities.

Moving on, Google Translate has landed on Android Wear. In an fascinating move, it will be built into the latest software update, so it's not a standalone app you can download correct now. Translate will work on your wrist even if you don't have the corresponding app installed on your phone.

To utilize it, just speak into your watch and what you say will be instantly translated into one of 44 supported languages. You can sdiscontinue the translated text to a fridiscontinue with a flip of the wrist, and when that person answers in their language you flip your wrist back to see in your language what they've said. And so on.

Since Translate automatically recognizes what language is spoken, once you start a conversation with someone you only have to haged talking naturally, and it will hold care of the rest. For text-to-text translation, Google Translate works with 90 languages at the moment.

The recent version of Android Wear will be rolling out to all smartwatches running Google's wearable Operating System (OS) "in the coming weeks". Now that you know what's new, the only thing you need is patience.
