Google could rebrand Android Wear to Wear OS

Google might soon rebrand its Android Wear to simply Wear OS as per a post shared on Reddit.

Other than the new name and logo, we know nothing about this mysterious Wear OS. The most talked about change is the iPhone X like notch support.

Now, with Android P in works, Google is experimenting with a new rounded search bar (similar to the one seen on its Pixel launcher) on its mobile site. Well, it seems that the search giant might be looking to give its wearable operating system, Android Wear a makeover too. Foremost amongst these is the limited success of the Android Wear platform.

In Android Oreo, Google took a chance and integrated Sony's Overlay Manager Service, the foundation for what is now the Substratum theming engine which is native to LineageOS. Android Wear-powered devices can pair with both Android and iOS handsets and can download apps from the Google Play Store. We suspect we'll find out more during Google I/O in May.

Bills Move Up in First Round by Trading Cordy Glenn to Bengals
The Cincinnati Bengals have acquired top offensive tackle Cordy Glenn in a trade with the Buffalo Bills , reports Fox Sports . The team is now on the hook for the remainder of the five-year, $65 million extension Glenn signed with the Bills in 2016.

Google launched the new payment services and they are promoting the Android Wear in the same way they have done branding new pay app. While this is the first build of the upcoming Android OS, changes are expected to follow in the subsequent previews before the final build is released this fall.

The most recent update to Android Wear in December 2017 brought a "Touch Lock" function for locking the screen to prevent random taps when using devices underwater, as well as improved power efficiency and compatibility with new languages.

Since there is no any official confirmation about this rebranding available with us, we are unable to confirm the same.
