Remember last month when Google revealed a new UI experience for Wear OS? Well it’s finally rolling out.
Wear OS 2.1 is starting to see the light of day, with the primary focus being to improve the overall user interface for smartwatch owners. This new UI is all about swiping. You can swipe up to check your notifications or swipe right to access Google Assistant. You can swipe down to find Quick Settings, which will let you turn on things like Airplane Mode, Do Not Disturb, and more.
Swiping left will reach the new Google Fit, which saw its debut back in August. You’ll be able to see the Move Minutes and Heart Points you reach.
The new Wear OS 2.1 is rolling out now. If you want to check to see if the update is available for your device, just open up the Settings app, then open up System –> About –> System updates. The new software sounds like a worthwhile upgrade, so let us know in the comments what you think of the update after you install it.
