Google Android Wear to become Wear OS later this year

If Wear OS will indeed be unveiled at this year's I/O, Google may also be planning to announce major initiatives alongside the new name.

First spotted by Redditor /u/H3x0n on the /r/AndroidWear subreddit, the latest Google Play Services beta update is showing a new logo and name when attempting to set up an Android Wear smartwatch.

Android Wear is struggling to gain traction with users.

Android wear was launched at Google I/O conference back in March 2014. There are entirely too many ways that Google Lens now available on the mass-based Android can be misused, and it is the company's responsibility to ensure they start taking measures to avoid that from happening.

Google's intention behind the renaming process is rather evident. Perhaps, Google doesn't want to confine its services to only Android devices. However, it appears that Google might be about to give its Android Wear platform a makeover, thereby reigniting interest in the sector. Huawei secured the top fifth spot because of its fitness tracker, not Android wristwear.

Those on board include 12 Nepali tour agents who were returning after an annual sales conference in Bangladesh, an official said. A spokesman for the Dhaka-based U.S. -Bangla Airlines said 71 people, including four crew members, were on board the aircraft.

Not so long ago, Google rebranded its Android Pay service to Google Pay in an attempt to homogenize its mobile payment solutions.

Google has not confirmed the name change, and therefore has not provided an explanation for the speculated move.

Maybe for those gadget enthusiasts who didn't prefer the "A-word" or those buyers who previously thought that they needed an Android phone.

Google is rumored to be rebranding Android Wear with a new name and logo as Wear OS, as the operating system occupies a stagnant market for wearable devices. This name changer can be a lack of faith or a leap of faith.
