Google rebrands Android Wear as “Wear OS”

Android Wear has been around for some time now and Google has been working to make sure most, if not all smartwatches can run Android Wear in the future. As a part of making Android Wear known to more people, Google officially renamed the wearable OS to “Wear OS”. This shouldn’t come as surprise since Google was rumoured to be working on a rebranding for the wearable OS.

Google hasn’t however disclosed any new features that the Wear OS will carry so as of now, it is just a rebranding. However, rebranding does assure that Google is at least taking Wear OS seriously and we might see new features soon. Google mentioned in their official blog post that all the smartwatches running Android Wear will get this new branding change in the coming weeks. If you cannot wait for the update to roll out for your device then head to APK Mirror and download the APK file and install it manually.
