Android Wear owners can rejoice because they are going to get the 5.0.1 Lollipop upgrade for their smartwatches soon, maybe as early as today i.e. December 10. Although Google hasn’t revealed anything about it, Phandroid has learnt from a trusted source that the Mountain View giant is on the verge of rolling out the 5.0 Lollipop Update for Android Wear.
Although the update for Android wear will not be as big as it was for tablets and smartphones when their OS was shifted from Android KitKat to Lollipop, it will have some great improvements incorporated in it.
As was rumored earlier, new update will allegedly include information about the battery and storage in the companion app; recovery of dismissed cards; quick toggles for screen brightness including regular mode, theater mode and sunlight mode; several new watch faces and option to switch watch faces through the companion app; better “Ok Google” experience by reordering actions based on earlier usage; and text size, magnification and color-blind options for visually impaired.
The rumor also says that in the Android Wear 5.0.1 update, there will be a substantial improvement in the battery life of some smartwatches. The changes appear to be quite exciting and those having Android Wear watches will no doubt be eagerly waiting for the update.
