Android Wear 2.0 are starting to pop up, causing some developers no small amount of disappointment and distress. Googler Ian Lake, told about Night Light on Android 7.1, revealed that, starting with version 2.0, Android Wear apps must be installed from the smartwatch Play Store instead of being automatically pulled in by the companion smartphone app. It is be one kind of headache for users for install the apps seperately.
According to Lake, in Wear 2.0, users will have to go into Android Wear’s version of Google Play Store on the smartwatch, regardless of whether the equivalent app is installed on the Android smartphone or not.If they don’t want the Android Wear version of an app they installed on their phone, they won’t be forced to have it. For developers, this means that they will be able to develop and package an Android Wear app, even without a regular Android app companion.
