Google announced the Oreo-based Android Wear beta build back in October. This was the first build meant for early adopters who wanted to test out the operating system before its was available to the general public.

It is two months later and Google has announced that the final build will be pushed out to devices as from today. We haven’t heard much about Android Wear recently but Google is still committed to it. This announcement was made by on Google+ by Hoi Lam, a moderator at Android Wear Developers community on Google+.

You can see from the posts above, he revealed some of the new features users should be getting. Some of these include improvements with notification vibration strength setting, touch lock option for wet conditions, support for 7 new countries / languages, notification channels and battery saving background limits.

At this point, we are not sure which devices will be getting the update first and which one will be missing it. I do not expect all Android Wear devices on the market to get the update and I will definitely update you on the ones that will be missing it when I get that information.
