Internet search giant Google will allow third-party developers to create custom Tiles for Wear OS, the company has announced via a blog post.
First launched in 2019, Tiles are widgets that come with shortcuts to apps like weather, calendar and more,
Till now, the ones created by Google were showcased on WearOS smartwatches.
Now, however, developers will be able to create custom Tiles on Wear OS smartwatches.
These custom Tiles will become available to users soon when Google rolls out the corresponding Wear OS platform update said the company.
“Tiles can be designed for many use cases, like tracking the user’s daily activity progress, quick-starting a workout, starting a recently played song, or sending a message to a favorite contact. While apps can be immersive, Tiles are fast-loading and focus on the user’s immediate needs. If the user would like more information, Tiles can be tapped to open a related app on the watch or phone for a deeper experience,” said Google.
Recently, Google confirmed that it is working on a fix for an issue that was broken for months. Apparently, saying “Hey Google” to activate the Google Assistant has not been responsive on Wear OS since November 2020.
Last month, the company addressed the issue and said that it will be fixed soon, as per a report by The Verge. The company had assured users that it will not only fix the issue but also “improve the overall experience.”
