Google could soon rebrand Android Wear, changing name to 'Wear OS'

Android Wear has been around for a while now, but it hasn't picked up the pace as Google would have wanted.

Android Wear has evolved a lot since it was first announced back in 2014. Now, the company is aiming towards changing the name of the OS with Wear OS as all the new reports confirmed the same news. In version 12.5, which is the latest beta, you can see changes to both the name and logo.

The new information was posted on Reddit, with user H3x0n noting that the rebranded software appeared when setting up a new Android Wear smartwatch.

The notification was generated by Google Play services, specifically the "Nearby" functionality that "helps you find and interact with services and devices close to you".

Android wears are the smart watches, they are improved and become advanced with Google Assistant. After all, one can use Android Wear watches with iPhones too.

In a rare piece of promising news for Google's Android Wear platform, a Redditor has stumbled upon a new icon and name for the wearables platform. In addition, the search giant will also give Wear OS a new logo that resembles that of the Google Assistant.

While this doesn't necessarily mean the announcement is imminent, the new discovery does seem to indicate the rebranding will happen at least by the time Android P gets released. Therefore, the introduced changes to Android Wear make it far more palatable option for Apple fanboys. While Android Wear is technically Android, it could be that Google wants the name to be more inclusive for its compatibility with other mobile operating systems.

Since there is no any official confirmation about this rebranding available with us, we are unable to confirm the same.
