Google Introduces Interactive Watch Faces With Android Wear 1.3 Update

In a bid to regain some ground in the smartwatch space, Google is constantly evolving its Android Wear offering and has now introduced interactive watch faces.

Users will be able to tap on a watch face for it to change its design, reveal more information or even launch an app on the Android Wear device.

Watch faces will now be able to cycle users through multiple screens of information which is important since it reduces a user’s need to enter a watch app.


On the sidelines of the announcement, Google also debuted its own watch face – Together – that brings functionalities similar to the Apple Watch’s Digital Touch.

Using Together, users can make a link with a chosen contact and share emoji, photos, current activity and even exchange doodles scribbled onto the watch display.

Interactive watch faces will roll out over the next couple of weeks as part of the Android Wear 1.3 update which also brings along Google Translate support.
