Wear OS from Google brings official support for Google Pay to your wrist on supported devices


The change of name from Android Wear to Wear OS this week has brought another welcome addition: Official support for watches.

While Android Pay (Google Pay) was able to be used on watches with NFC such as the Huawei Watch 2, users always had to manually enable the Android Pay app through Google Pay. It seems it was unoficially official if you catch our drift. From now though it appears it’s officially official, with the Wear OS by Google social media accounts announcing the support for Google Pay on your wrist (if it has NFC) is is now available in Canada, Spain and of course Australia.

If you don’t have Google Pay installed, you can now install it and it won’t disable after some uses.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

My LG watch sport has finally done a full upgrade! I’m now on Android OS 8.0, Wear OS 1.0 and the home app is version 2.10. lots of tweaks all over the place and generally just smoother with less little annoyances.
