In the realm of technology, entertaining things happen on a weekly basis. iPhone 6S here, Samsung Galaxy tablet there, Google watch-to-watch communication all over the place. According to a recent announcement coming from Google, users will be able to send each other stickers, photos, messages, doodles and more, through a new feature that allows exchanges. The new service is called “together” and it is similar to the Apple Watch’s Digital Touch.
The world of smartwatches evolves, even though the greatest smartwatch hit proved to actually be a failure. Apple must face a very hard slap over the face, as sales for the Apple Watch have dropped with almost 90% over the last months. To wash the shame and the decrease in profits, Apple is now concentrated on launching an alternative iPhone model set to enhance the functionality of The Watch.
On other horizons which prove to be better related to progress, Google takes the lead and helps smartwatch evolution with the release of this new batch of services meant to make communication even more interactive and entertaining. The “together” feature changes the face and the coordinates of smartwatch communication and takes wearable technology to a higher level.
Android Wear users who are willing to share items need to use the same watch face as well, as the feature is not yet system wide. If you want to send a heartbeat to someone close to you, you will be able to do that with a single press of a button.
The recent update will come along with a batch of new and interactive watch faces and change aspects related to functionality, all associated with a single tap. For the time being, the update makes changes as tapping on the new interactive watchfaces will make them change through different states such as weather, sports time and training info.
When it comes to Android Wear, the system is able to accept four different tapping or swipe gestures. Swiping up allows you to navigate notifications, swiping left lets you open the launcher, the quick settings shade opens with a simple swipe down and a long press allows you to open the watch face picker interface.
The voice command menu can be activated in the simplest manner, by simply tapping the watch face.
The new update will be officially announced this July or August. However, official information is not yet released and confirmed, so we suggest all the above to be taken with a grain of salt. Watch to watch communication will certainly become a reality but the steady coordinates confirming it are yet to be revealed.
