What does the future of Wear OS behold?

Qualcomm

The second big update brings improvements to Google Assistant. With Google's revamped Wear OS and Qualcomm's brand new chips, Google's smartwatch platform should get a major boost and will be able to compete with Apple's Watch lineup. Being based on the upcoming Android release, Wear OS by Google, formerly Android Wear also by Google, is similarly getting a sneak peek. A long press allows the user to switch back to a fully-operational mode and perform tasks such as paying with NFC or replying to a message.

As per some sources, Qualcomm's senior director of wearables, Pankaj Kedia, revealed that the company is working on developing a new platform for wearables to be announced this fall, alongside a "lead smartwatch".

Why John Legend voicing the Google Assistant matters
As Pichai explained, Wavenet will extrapolate Legend's voice for specific questions and requests for use in Google Assistant . All I really care about here is being able to say, "Ok Google, make my coffee in 10 minutes" to get my morning joe.

This joint effort aims to expand global availability, as well as accelerate the availability of key new enhancements to consumers, such as multi-camera support, display cutout support, indoor navigation, HDR, among others.

This all follows on from Google's first developer preview that landed in March and began bringing Android P features to the wearable platform. Users can get to know the time by pressing the side button.

Gmail, Google Photos Getting Big AI Improvements
For example, if you're writing an email on a Friday, it may suggest " Have a great weekend! " to end your message. From here, they go to the general tab in settings, scroll down and enable " experimental access ".

The mode is available now as part of the latest Android P developer preview, and according to the Android Developers blog it will turn off the touchscreen, radios and tilt to wake. Samsung's Gear series offers significantly better battery life than most of its Wear OS competition, and that's thanks to its superior SoC. Back in 2016, Qualcomm announced a significant update as it announced the Snapdragon 2100, which is now being used in nearly every Wear OS watch.

The third-generation SoCs - after the Snapdragon 400 and Snapdragon 2100 - is touted to be designed from the ground up "for a no-compromises smartwatch experience" and include dedicated chips to enable always-on functionality. The SoCs will come in different variations, all with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi and some with Global Positioning System and LTE. Project Treble did help in getting quicker updates for several devices, but we'll need chip manufacturers on board if we have to fix the problem.
