As you go about your busy day, every minute matters. We’re evolving the design of Wear OS by Google to help you get the most out of your time—providing quicker access to your information and notifications, more proactive help from the Google Assistant, and smarter health coaching—all with a swipe of your finger.

Easier access to notifications and more
We’re making it easier to browse, dismiss or take action on your notifications with the new notification stream. Simply swipe up to see all your notifications at once. See an important message? Just tap to select a built-in smart reply without even leaving your stream. Swipe down on your watch to get quicker access to handy features and shortcuts like Google Pay or ‘Find my phone’.

More proactive help from your Google Assistant
With the new design, you can now receive proactive and personalized help from your Google Assistant. Let’s say you’re headed to the airport—swipe right on your watch to see your flight status or hotel reservation. Tap on smart suggestions like the weather at your destination or find a restaurant near your hotel. When you’re getting ready for the day, your Google Assistant will help you stay ahead by reminding you to bring an umbrella, showing you your day’s meetings, or warning you if there is a delay on your commute. The Google Assistant will also suggest features you may not have tried yet and will become more helpful over time as it gets to know you and as we add new features.
Smarter health coaching
Last week, we announced that Google Fit is making it easier to be healthy with two new activity goals: Heart Points and Move Minutes. We worked with the American Heart Association and the World Health Organization to design these goals based on their physical activity recommendations which are shown to have health benefits for your heart and mind. Now, you can simply swipe left to start a workout or see how you are tracking toward your goals.

Friendly Reminder: We’ll begin rolling out these new features over the next month, so look out for updates on your Wear OS by Google smartwatch. Some features may vary by phone OS, watch or country.

Any watch that was not compatible with Android Wear 2.0 previously will not receive the update. This includes the following devices: LG G Watch, Samsung Gear Live, Moto 360 v1, Sony Smartwatch 3, Asus ZenWatch v1. Let us know if you have any other questions!

Given the post was made 15 days ago, and no sign of the update has appeared. Is there an updated schedule for the release of this new version of Wear OS?

Hi Daniel, 

My apologies for the confusion, my post was just a launch announcement. We’ll begin rolling out these new features over the next month, so look out for updates on your Wear OS by Google smartwatch. Some features may vary by phone OS, watch or country.

The update of wear os was planned for this month but, to date, my device has not yet received the update. I could tell the timing or when it will be released please?

An update did come through for me the other day, but several of the features described in your original post are not there ...my watch says "WearOS 1.6"

I'm guessing it will be WearOS 2.0 is when the features will be unlocked.  I imagine Google is going to time this with the Pixel 3 announcements in October?  I had another update roll through but still on WearOS 1.6 though I image these are minor tweaking leading up to the big rollout of the newest WearOS.

Good find, I had not seen that article and you are correct, the new feature should appear in WearOS 1.6.  The only thing I can think of is though the watches has WearOS on them, they have not had the full download.  The reason why I suspect this is that, I have 2 updates already both under the WearOS1.6 version.  So I imagine they are make the updates in increments and will have full activation soon.
