As we all know Google is trying Hard to cover the Market Cap of Apple over Smart Watches, But no matter what, Apple is still the King despite its Hgh Cost. Google has launched the Android Wear 2.0 and released Oreo Update in these Watches. Now the Company has just released the Wear 2.8 Update which changes the whole look of Android OS to a much better theme.
According to many of threads on Reddit, some users have reported getting an all-new black AMOLED style theme update for their smartwatches. After they updated it to the 2.8 Update for Android Wear. From what we can tell, there isn’t any noticeable functional additions and just the all-black theme.
If you recall, the original Android Wear theme used to support a roughly grey styled UI. Now, with this new update, everything has gone black – including the quick settings shade, the app drawer, and some other pages as well.
While the new update is great, a noticeable thing is that the new theme is a forced update. That means that users will not get a toggle for switching back to the grey-tone UI.
Some early recipients of the new theme suggest that the latest update could be for smartwatches sporting an AMOLED screen, but there is no confirmation on it yet. Maybe, it is for everyone because more the black color, it will help you in saving battery. The new theme, however, does indeed look good, and an all-black theme should help the battery life department since it’s advantageous for AMOLED displays.
As per the users, the new theme was bestowed upon them after receiving an update to the Android Wear app on Google Play. Considering the fact that Google did state that users will now be able to update their firmware via the Play Store, this makes sense. As you can see, the new theme is available on watches running the v126.96.36.199612071.
While users have already started getting the new update, there are still plenty of people out there, including me, who are yet to receive the update on their smartwatches. In case you’re someone who has received the all-black theme on your device, do let us know your thoughts on it in the comments section down below.
