There’s a new update out for the Android Wear app, and it contains one feature I’ve been anticipating for a long time: you can now disable card previews. When you have a gorgeous watch face you want to see, or an analog clock with the arrows on the bottom half of the display, those constant card previews can get annoying. Now you can disable them once and for all!
Other features include offline music playback via Bluetooth headphones, a battery saver mode that turns off your display when the battery is low, and bug fixes. It’s great to see Google adding new features to Android Wear, and though this isn’t a big update by any means, the ability to disable card previews constantly coming back up is a huge improvement for me.
Once you update the app, expect your watch to restart itself soon after. Afterwards, go tinker with the new settings and tell us how you like it!
