Google Messenger v1.9 is installable on Android 7.0 developer previews and restores Wear support [APK Download]

If you're among the crowd that both installs Android developer previews and also owns an Android Wear watch, you've probably noticed some of the apps that belong on your watch have been missing. This happens because the stock apps included with the developer previews are missing the micro-apks for Wear. As the official release of Android 7.0 draws near, Google has been slowly releasing app updates that can install over the stock versions on the developer preview. And as of yesterday's stream of updates, Google Messenger joins that list.

Exclusive: These could be Google's upcoming Android Wear smartwatches

As we reported last week, Google is in the process of building two Android Wear smartwatches. At the time, we were unable to show you the watches themselves. Today, that changes - what you see in the image above could be codename "Angelfish" and "Swordfish," Google's two Assistant-enabled wearables that we believe will be released after the new Nexus phones.

Disclaimer: No matter the confidence level, there's always a chance product updates, features, and some or all details will be changed or cancelled altogether. As with all rumors, nothing is 100% until it's officially announced.

We do not have possession of any APKs we can distribute or unreleased devices, so please don't ask for them.

Exclusive: Google is building two Android Wear smartwatches with Google Assistant integration

Speaking to Android Police, a reliable source has told us that Google is currently building two Android Wear devices - possibly Nexus-branded - for release some time after the latest Nexus phones are announced. One watch will be larger, sportier, and more fully-featured (LTE, GPS, heart rate), the other will be smaller and lack the aforementioned mobile data and GPS.

WiFi Manager for Android Wear lets you enter network passwords on your watch

Google added support for WiFi on Android Wear devices a long time ago, but the feature is a bit of a pain to use. You have to enter the WiFi passwords on your phone, and the connection manager on Wear is limited to say the least. WiFi Manager for Android Wear makes more of the process workable on the wearable itself, and it's free to try.

ASUS posts details of the latest ZenWatch 2 update

Earlier this month, the Moto 360 and Moto 360 Sport started getting an update with May's security patches and a couple of Moto Body improvements, while other Wear watches got just the new security updates. And given that almost none of the other manufacturers share their update's details, we didn't know if anything else had changed in their software along with that.

Now ASUS has posted the release notes for its ZenWatch 2 update to software version MWD59,MWD48B. There's nothing groundbreaking here, but if you own this speaker-enabled and yet slightly cheap watch, you'll be happy to read about the different improvements along with the option to view the Peek card in ASUS' own watchfaces.

Motorola Confirms Moto 360 Gen. 1 Will Not Receive Android Wear 2.0 Update

While you may have seen reports via Motorola's Twitter account that the Moto 360 Gen. 1 would not be receiving Wear 2.0, we decided to follow up with Motorola's official PR this morning on this news and received direct confirmation: the Moto 360 Gen. 1 won't get Wear 2.0.

The Moto 360 was heavily hyped leading up to its launch nearly two years ago, and understandably so: a [semi-]circular display made it stand out from pretty much any smartwatch that had been released previously. While LG's G Watch R was, in my opinion, a better take on the circular watch, the Moto 360 still stood out with its small bezels and minimalistic, lugless style.
