Android Wear 2.0 Gets Delayed into 2017

The third Android Wear 2.0 developer preview is available, and there are some big new features coming our way, but don’t get too excited just yet. The bad news is that Google has decided to continue its Android Wear 2.0 developer preview into early 2017. So we won’t see the official launch of the new operating system until after that at some point.

That’s not a bad thing. This wait will give developers some extra time to get things buttoned up. With this latest preview, developers can publish their alpha and beta Android Wear apps to the Play Store, and users can search for them. You won’t even need to install apps on both your phone and watch, since Google is offering the ability to install only the watch version of a new app. Even better, if developers want to, they even have the option of only offering a watch app by itself.

The arrival of the Play Store is the big addition in developer preview 3, but there are other new features like complications permissions, inline actions, and a new UI component called Wearable Recycle View, which lets developers display vertical lists that are optimized for round displays. Developers will be pretty busy getting their apps ready for this big release.
