The Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch has been heavily criticized since its launch. There were several well justified reasons like pricing and lack of proper support which clearly didn’t go down well with the customers. However, Samsung is on a mission to make this experiment of a smartwatch more bearable with every new update. Keeping that in mind, Samsung has issued another new update to the smartwatch, which this time brings support for popular third party apps like Gmail, Facebook, Hangouts and Twitter.
As shown descriptively by the folks at Pocket-Lint, the smartwatch can now display mail from Gmail or your tweets from the Twitter app, right within the screen. Although it looks a bit cramped, we must commend Samsung for finally bringing support for these popular apps. This is one of those things which Samsung probably could have included right out of the box, but Samsung maybe didn’t expect the smartwatch to go through such severe scrutiny right after its launch. The new update is rolling out to some units of the Galaxy Gear in the UK, although a few users reportedly received the update some days ago.
