So... Updates to Google messages, updates to WearOS, an update to AndroidTV, a few updates to Google proprietary apps, and one or two updates to the actual Android operating system.
Make daily tasks easier with Assistant Routines on Wear OS
Coming soon, you can start Assistant Routines right from your Wear OS smartwatch with a voice command to get more done on the go. For example, if you have a ‘commuting to work’ routine set-up that helps you navigate to work, check the weather and hear your day’s agenda, then at any time of day you can start that routine by saying “Hey Google, commuting to work.”
How has that not been a feature from the beginning?
Google is so big that the right hand doesn't know what the left is doing and they can't even have a cohesive platform of features.
Yeah, this one blows my mind because I would have assumed that the intent processing when issuing a command would be the same on the watch as it is on any other Google device and to NOT do that would require more work.
Just a week ago when they mentioned making watches into VR controllers, I said I'd much rather see this because it's been so frustrating. I refuse to believe none of the designers at Google thought the same: https://lemmy.tf/comment/3586848
"Android" features. lol
I'd like to see something like Apple's HomeKey for smart locks.
Just as long as they don't break my phone app again.
