Android Wear is certainly an innovative project and has captured the attention of all Android users. The initial concept was shown off with a few native apps and notifications which the platform could leverage. But Google has now published a new set of notifications which an Android Wear device will be capable of handling. This was expected with the SDK made available to third party developers a couple of months ago.
The screenshots posted by Google reveals notifications from the calendar, reminding the user of an upcoming appointment. There’s also going to be alerts from the Nest Smoke Detector and Thermostat which can tell you if there’s a smoke at the location of your choice. Lastly, Google shows off support for the Pocket Casts application which will come with advanced controls to pause, play or skip podcasts.
Since Android Wear is a centralized platform, we should see these features making their way to the likes of the Moto 360 as well as the LG G Watch. It seems like third party applications will also be able to send notifications periodically if the user wishes to receive them. The Clash of Clans screenshot that you see below is an example of that.
We should have more information on this feature on the 25th of June when Google is expected to hold the annual I/O developer conference.
