Evidence has been mounting over a final few days and it looks like it’s finally happening: Android 6.0 for Wear is starting to hurl out. Googler Wayne Piekarski only announced on his Google+ feed that OTAs have begun and should continue over a subsequent few weeks.
An official blog post by Google lists some of a new facilities we can design in a new firmware, including: newly navigation gestures, audio support on speaker-equipped watches, and stretched support for messaging clients.
In Piekarski’s post, he reminds developers that a API 23 SDK is already out, though that nobody should mislay support for API 22 until a rollout is complete. It’s not privately stated, though this sign does clearly endorse that all Android Wear inclination will be receiving Marshmallow, differently a recommendation would have been to continue ancillary API 22 for any device left behind. Those with a Gear Live, G Watch, or strange Moto 360 won’t have to feel left out of a fun.
From a sound of it, a initial OTAs will start rolling out someday today. Some models will accept updates before others, so don’t worry if there’s not an OTA floating around for your sold model. It’s expected it wasn’t on a list to go first. Like all Nexus OTAs, a tiny organisation for any indication will be initial to get updates, and afterwards a numbers will ramp adult fast if no vital issues are reported.
It’s time to start checking for updates!
