After many rumors, Google has just announced that the Android Wear platform is coming to iOS users. That's right, if you have an iPhone 6 and want to use LG Watch Urbane because Apple Watch is too expensive, you can now.
Highlight recent changes
In the next few hours an Android Wear app will be available for download from the App Store. This will make it possible to pair an iPhone, customize wallpapers and adjust settings, just as platform users already have on devices running Android. So far, only LG Watch Urbane ($ 1,599 suggested price) can be paired with iOS, but in the future we will support the smart watches from Huawei, ASUS and Motorola. According to The Verge, as long as Moto 360 is running on the latest version of Android Wear, you can pair the device with an iPhone!
To use the Android Wear app for iOS you will need to be running Apple's version 8.2 or higher, and have one of their devices: iPhone 5, 5c, 5s, 6, or 6 Plus!
This is not the first time Apple has allowed third-party services to be available on the App Store, as users of Pebble were already using wearable in conjunction with iOS. And if you are wondering if the "Ok, Google" voice command will work, know so, as well as all Google Now functions, which would be checking weather information, showing flight information, movie hours and / or news.
And what do you think of Apple opening this possibility for iOS users to use the Android Wear platform on the iPhone?
