Wear OS Watches: Google News could soon arrive on WearOS 3 watches: report

Google is developing a simpler version of the Google News feed that will allow consumers to read directly from their smartwatches.

Google unveiled the Pixel Watch, along with the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, at its “Made By Google” event. Following the release of the company’s first wristwatch, Google seems to have pushed developers to produce more WearOS apps.

It looks like the company is working on creating a wearOS version of Google News. The app has been available on mobile devices for a long time.

Google is working on a simplified version of the Google News feed that will allow consumers to read directly from their watches. Apparently, a Reddit user managed to access the Google News Play Store listing on his WearOS watch. The user also posted images of the new software.

The Google News app is currently not accessible on the WearOS edition of the Play Store, but the tipster accessed the list through the Google Assistant app search feature. These images show how the Google News app can appear on WearOS watches.

The images show a simplified version of the app’s newsfeed and a tile that would help users read the news on their wristwatch. The app’s interface is comparable to other Google apps on WearOS 3. The article does not specify when this new app will be released for WearOS 3 smartwatches.

Notably, the tech firm has yet to launch its first smartwatch in India, and it’s only accessible in a few locations.


What are the latest smartwatches?

The most recent versions of WearOS are the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5, Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, Montblanc Summit 3, and Fossil Gen 6 Wellness Edition.

Is WearOS available on watches?

Google’s WearOS 3 is already available on some smartwatches, like Google Pixel Watch.
