Google will launch the first new app on Wear OS soon, is it Gboard?

Google’s Wear OS platform has become a crucial point to some jokes over the years. However, the company’s seeming lack of interest in the operating system has not helped matters.

Whereas, perhaps 2021 is going to be the year Google gets its act together when it comes to its smartwatch software. Case in point: today, Google is launching a Wear OS version of Gboard, it popular keyboard app that appears on smartphones.


Before this Wear OS Gboard debut, smartwatch users needed to rely on “Google Keyboard,” a generic system with limited functionality. As the tweet above describes, the Gboard app brings a few new features, such as quick access to different input kinds, better suggestions, better autocorrect, and multi-language support.

Google claims this debut is happening in the coming days, thus, guys, just stay tuned if you have the Wear OS-powered watch.

Google suggests that there would be more Wear OS news rolling out over the year. We fully expect to see at least some wearable news from the 2021 iteration of Google I/O, which is only two weeks away.
