New Android Wear 2.0 features can now be delivered through the Play Store, no OTA required

Wear 2.0 hasn't been received almost as well as might have been expected, with many observers understandably worrying for its future. This is part of a trend we have been seeing more of in the past couple of years with Android smartphone manufacturers creating individual Play Store versions of apps usually baked into their own UIs.

Announced via Google+ this week, the only place Android Wear news seems to be alive and well, the wearable platform from Google will receive incremental updates via official Android Wear app updates on Google Play, instead of all things being pushed through in an OTA. Watches were conspicuously absent from Google's big hardware event last week, and the Google Store site refresh has removed all non-Google products, including LG's recently released Android Wear watches. Google can now add new features and services for Android Wear 2.0 through the Play Store. But this does show that Google is still committed to Android Wear, even though it has been quite some time since there was a major update to the platform.
