Good news if you have the Huawei smartwatch as it was just announced Huawei will be getting the new Android Wear 2.0 update. Huawei is one of many brands of smartwatches out there, and some smartwatches have already seen the Android Wear 2.0 update. We have all the latest news about the brand Huawei Deutschland and the upcoming Android Wear 2.0 update.
Huawei Smartwatch Testing Android Wear 2.0
While Huawei is going to be getting the new Android Wear 2.0 update, the official release is not right now. Huawei did tell owners of the original smartwatch that there will be a new update coming by the end of the month. Considering it is already almost the end of the month, we can assume that update will be coming in the next 10 days. Some people have already said that the Huawei smartwatch is rolling out the new Android Wear 2.0 release to some consumers.
The issue though is that not everyone is getting the new Huawei smartwatch Android Wear 2.0 update. That is because right now, only approved testers have access to the Android Wear 2.0 update. The developer keys are already being sent out to those approved testers, so there is only a limited release of Android Wear 2.0 on the Huawei smartwatch right now. The official release for everyone that has a Huawei smartwatch should still be coming very soon though. We do not have an official release date for Android Wear 2.0 for the original Huawei smartwatch, but you can expect that within the next few weeks or so, most people should be seeing the update.
All About Android Wear 2.0
Android Wear 2.0 is the second version of Android Wear, which was developed by Google. This is the operating system that all wearable devices use, and it began releasing to all supported devices about a month ago. Some new features in Android Wear 2.0 include Android Pay, more customization options, interface improvements, Google Play Store app, and an on-screen keyboard. There will also be better messaging support in Android Wear 2.0, which is good news for those who like to be social and stay on top of their communication with friends and family.
Google plans on releasing Android Wear 2.0 in phases, much like with Android for mobile and other operating systems. That means that it will take a little bit of time for the original Huawei smartwatch owners to get the update, along with other supported smartwatch brands. Even though it might take a little longer than you think it will to get the update, at least now you know that the approved testers are already getting the developer key.
Android Wear 2.0 should be hitting more Android devices now, although it might take a while for all supported devices to get this update. The best news here though is that Huawei smartwatches will be getting the update sooner than a lot of other brands and manufacturers out there.
If you would like to sign up to get a developer key to test Android Wear 2.0 on supported devices, you can head over to the website for Android Wear 2.0 and sign up. Not everyone who signs up to become a tester though will get into the program, but it is a great way to get the operating system before the official release. The only downside to getting the updates sooner is that you might have to give feedback if the operating system has not been released yet, so there might be some glitches and bugs in the tester version of the Android Wear 2.0. It is better to just wait for the official release of Android Wear 2.0 if you have one of the original Huawei smartwatches.
