Android Wear Devices To Soon Get Android Marshmallow Support – Know The New Features


The world of technology has been progressing in a rapid manner, and there have been several changes which are coming out in the way of technology.

The year 2016 is expected to be a major step forward for the world of technology as various companies are gearing up to tap into bigger techniques.

Three technologies which are all set to change the way the markets of technology function in 2016 are those of Virtual Reality, Internet of Things and Artificial Intelligence. Wearable technology is also a market which is expected to grow faster than ever before.

Android Wear devices have been getting a lot of attention lately, and the technology is all set to get a major boost, as the markets are now about to witness a new update, where they will be getting the Android Marshmallow 6.0 update.

Following are some of the features that are expected to be brought out in this new update:

  1. Gesture Based Controls

Considering the fact that the Android Wear devices are quite small in size and have a very small screen, it is very hard to make touch based controls prominent here. Gesture based controls are quite useful when one takes a look at these devices. Wrist Gestures are performing various actions for the devices already, and after this new update, the android wear devices will be getting even more gesture based controls.

  1. Voice Messaging

Users of the Android Wear devices are expected to get a major boost with this update, as the users will now be able to dictate voice messages to their devices using Google Now.

Commands will be as simple as saying – ok Google, send a WhatsApp message to Jack ‘How are you’.  This is all set to empower the users to do more by voice.

  1. Calling From Smart Watches

Devices which come out with the speaker functionality will be the ones which will benefit the most from this update.

This will empower the users to now make calls from the device with a greater ease. Smartwatches can now connect via Bluetooth headsets and calls can be easily made as well as answered from the devices.

However as of this moment only two watches are available which carry this functionality of speakers – the Huawei Watch and the Asus ZenWatch 2.
