Final Android Wear 2.0 Developer Preview brings iOS support

Google has released the fifth and final version of Android Wear 2.0 Developer Preview, ahead of the public launch next month.

The latest developer preview includes a number of bug fixes and enhancements and brings iOS support for the new on-watch Play Store, which means third party app developers can now push their apps to iPhone-paired watches for the first time. Earlier, iPhone users with Android Wear watches could only access watchfaces and app distributed by Google via Android Wear iOS app.

Also Android Wear apps running on watches paired with iOS device will be able to perform hand-off flows for launching web page on a paired iOS device.

The preview version also adds the option for a new navigation drawer for apps , and support for NFC Host Card Emulation, for Android Pay on supported watches.

Google has already confirmed that Android Wear 2.0 will be available early February. According to reports Google will release two Android Wear 2.0 smartwatches manufactured by LG on February 9, and then roll out the next gen wearable platform to existing Android Wear watches.
