Android Wear rebranding underway it seems, get ready for Wear OS

Android Wear rebranding underway it seems, get ready for Wear OS Android Wear rebranding underway it seems, get ready for Wear OS

The notification received by the Reddit user was generated by Google Play services, which manages the connectivity part for smart wearables running on Android Wear.

Ahead of its new Android P Preview version, the company is tweaking its search bar for its mobile site. Google has not yet mentioned when it will be rolling out the revamped search bar in the mobile site.

While it still has "Google" in the name, it's another step away from the Android name and the search giants continues to shift products that aren't just available on Android (or will be in the future), under its own name.

Google is planning to bring a considerable visual change to its search bar for smartphone users.

Federer downs Delbonis to kick off Indian Wells Masters title defence
Novak Djokovic who along with Federer came to win the sixth Indian Wells tournament lost to Japanese qualifier Taro Daniel. The 20-time Grand Slam champion next takes on the 25th seed Filip Krajinovic for a spot in the pre-quarter-finals.

Arizona, Arizona State Make NCAA Tournament
The tournament begins Tuesday with opening-round games featuring a matchup of bubble teams UCLA and St. USC's resume suggested it should have gotten in over other teams such as Arizona State or Syracuse.

The same Rounded Search Bar can be found by the Pixel Phone users through their Pixel Launcher on their devices. The Search icon which was previously covered in blue color will not have a simple icon with no color. They are now independent and there are no any block available besides the categories which looks good indeed.

Interestingly, Google is also testing a new rounded address bar which will be placed on the bottom of the screen. The testers have tried to find out the same but they seem to be unable to figure out this new feature as of now.

These are all opinions on why the name change, but for the more solid reason we would have to wait for the official announcement of Android P during the Google I/O conference. Whatever the reason for the apparent stagnation in the Android Wear ecosystem, it appears that Google is looking to shake things up-starting with a rebranding of the OS to 'Wear OS'.
