Latest Android Wear update featuring great wrist gesture support, the ability to send WhatsApp, WeChat, Hangouts, etc. messages by voice, and the chance to make/receive calls on watches that have speakers.

This is so incredible to have search, turn-by-turn directions and navigation, business hours, and more OFFLINE within Google Maps!

You can now pair an Android Wear watch with an iPhone!

The LG Watch Urbane is the first Android Wear watch that supports iOS, but all future watches from Huawei, Asus, and Motorola will also pair with iPhones.

The latest Android Wear feature that I use all the time: You can send Hangouts messages hands-free from your watch. Just speak commands like "send a Hangouts message", "send a Hangouts message to Alex", and "tell Monica I'm on my way using Hangouts"

Stop typing and start talking: Did you know you can ask the #Googleapp to put your other Android apps to work? Starting today, you can say things like, “Ok Google, Shazam this song,” or “Ok Google, listen to NPR.” Explore more ways to use #OkGoogle with other apps here: http://goo.gl/KP08g9
