Google might give Android Wear a name change to Wear OS

Retooling the Android Wear platform to Wear OS actually makes a lot of sense now, especially as it's not for Android-only compatibility devices anymore. The name is called "Wear OS" and hints at a re-branding of Google's smartwatch OS. This according to a Reddit user who claimed to have been greeted with a new icon and moniker when setting up a new Android Wear-powered smartwatch.

GOOGLE APPEARS to be planning to rebrand its wearables operating system Android Wear as Wear OS in a future update. There are entirely too many ways that Google Lens now available on the mass-based Android can be misused, and it is the company's responsibility to ensure they start taking measures to avoid that from happening.

Instead if devices are under the Wear OS name, it makes it far more palatable for those with iPhones and want to have a different device to the Apple Watch. From the clues that were let out by Google Developers' Twitter account, it seems that the company will hold the conference from May 8 to May 10 at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California. When converting the binary code to text, it reveals the Google I/O URL.

We decompiled the Google Play Services beta APK, and indeed found several references to Wear OS throughout the strings.

Meanwhile, you should know that Google has recently announced the update for Android smart wearables. However, thanks to lackluster hardware that was released to debut Android Wear 2.0, the platform's kind of been in a rut for over a year now.
