Earlier in May, we reported that the LG G Watch R will be receiving Wi-Fi support sometime during Q3 2015. Rightly so, LG has just announced added support for Wi-Fi for the smartwatch now with a new firmware update.
Apart from the changes to your smartphone and tablet, the latest v6.0 update for Play Music does bring in other improvements as well. It comes bundled with Android Wear companion app v2.0 that comes with a download manager for music that is synced to your smartwatch.
While Android Wear 5.1.1 is rolling out to various smartwatches, the update still hasn’t reached the Motorola 360. The reason for this delay is apparently attributed to the performance issues the Moto 360 is facing on version 5.1.1.
Smartwatches are meant to make life easier and that also means being able to control some functions of your smartphone from your smartwatch. That is exactly what the update to Android Wear 5.1.1 does as it now allows you to control the music on your smartphone directly from your smartwatch.
Google has just announced Games in Motion for Android. It’s an open source game sample to show how games can be made to make use of Google Fit and Android Wear.
