Google continues to prepare its Play store for the arrival of Wear OS 3.0 for smartwatches. The latest update allows you to install watch apps from your phone’s Play Store and adds useful filters to restrict your search to watch apps or watch faces only.
The Play Store app on the watch itself also benefits from the UI redesign that Google announced earlier this month, with Material You design queues.
It’s a card interface, which seems to be the best way to use the small screen of a circular smartwatch.
If you make an in-app purchase on your wrist, the purchase confirmation will be forwarded to your phone or you will get a URL generated to pay using a browser.
These updates will be rolled out to Android phones and Wear OS watches in the coming weeks.
