Android Wear Marshmallow
I don’t like smartphones with a large screen, because hard to handle them with one hand. Well, the Android Wear devices, as my Moto 360, has a small display and still without two hands there’s no way. Unless we will use for this special gestures that would establish updated Android Wear 1.4, also known as Android Wear Marshmallow.
From several months, Android Wear allows scrolling cards contactless. To scroll between tabs, you should quickly swing the wrist of each other then slowly return to the starting position. When you want to return to the previous tab, first slowly rotate the wrist of each other, and then quickly to each other. Now there is also the possibility of performing the action. To approve an item swing watch down then return to the starting position. When we do the same gesture on the main screen, we run the application menu, which also will be able to approve the same gesture.
Is it the very idea of people in public transport staring at his watch and waving back and forth wrist, makes only me laugh? Anyway, in the end you will be able to handle the smartwatch with one hand – the one on which it is located. Wow… brilliant 😉
Another novelty is the possibility of using the clockwork speaker – both for music and phone calls. Until now, even the smart watches that have it, could not play almost any sound. Such devices include, among others, the LG Watch Urban 2, Asus ZenWatch 2 or Huawei Watch.
We can also now use a voice messaging services such as WhatsApp, WeChat, Viber etc. Google also promises increased energy efficiency.
We’ll test – we’ll see.
