Google today said WearOS will soon adopt a redesigned user interface that’s meant to make certain types of information easier to find and use. To start, a new notification stream should improve how people manage incoming alerts. WearOS users can tap to interact with notifications, including accessing and sending smart replies without leaving the notification stream. The new WearOS brings new focus to Google Assistant, offering proactive and personalized help. For example, Assistant knows your schedule and when you’re traveling. It will proactively help users find the details concerning their flight and hotel, as well as the weather and available restaurants at their destination. It will also offer warnings when there are traffic delays or when it is about to rain. Last, WearOS taps into new health and fitness functions. WearOS incorporates the new tools recently added to Google Fit. These allow people to track their basic movement and steps, as well as automatically record select workouts. The new WearOS will be pushed to WearOS smartwatches over the coming months.
