The Wear OS is considered one of the best operating-systems for smartwatches. However, one of the main complaints about it is due to the fact that it rarely gets updated with new features and changes. However, that might change soon, as one anticipated feature looks like it's about to become all the rage.
Google IO 2021 is taking place soon - May 18. That's the day of the company's annual convention where we'll probably see Android 12, the newest Google smartphone, and more. As well as a keynote speech there are three days of talks, designed for developers who design apps for Google's various platforms, and one of them is about Wear OS.
This one specific talk is called 'Create your first Tile in Wear'. The name suggests it is designed to help app developers create tiles for the Wear OS smartwatches. Tiles are different watch faces you can choose with specific functions. They let you see things like the weather forecast, event reminders, and similar data. They've always been for first-party Google apps, but a rumor in late 2020 suggested third-party apps could soon get tiles too.
