Calendar and Gmail Apps Are On The Way For Wear OS

According to 9to5G, Google is currently working on releasing Gmail and Calendar apps for Wear OS devices, including the Pixel Watch.

The continuous statements show that Google is testing Calendar and Gmail apps on Wear OS. However, it is unable to determine whether consumers may create new events or write emails using applications. As per 9to5Google, the description of the experience was characterized as “full”. Evidently, 9to5Google was unimpressed with the experience. Unsurprisingly, testing of the Pixel Watch is ongoing in the meantime.

Smartwatches require additional apps to provide a better customer experience because they are becoming an essential part of our life. By making Calendar and Gmail applications available for Wear OS, users will be able to schedule events and send emails from their wrists, reducing the requirement for smartphone usage. The News app for Wear OS is allegedly also being prepared for release by Google.

Google offers comparable experiences with the Calendar app and email alerts, even though both applications may be available for Wear OS in the upcoming months. The Calendar app only allows for three days of preparation in advance and can display your upcoming event. Additionally, if you want to add new events, you must use Google Assistant.

According to 9to5Google, using Wear OS to access emails is difficult, unfortunately, because there is no way to get back to the inbox view after they are gone, and you can only retrieve them from the general notifications page. The present email experience in Wear OS is not fantastic and needs a lot of improvement in comparison to the Apple Watch Mail app and Outlook for Wear OS. Google prefers and relies on rich alerts from your smartphone to manage any task, which is reflected in the lack of Gmail and Calendar applications.

ArsTechnica, a website covering news and opinions in technology, science, politics, and society, also predicts that the Google Workspace suite which has highly been unwearable for the past eight years due to anonymous excuses, development of wearables applications might be a major move.
