Th new upgradation of Android Wear to version 2.0 will bring more new features including official Google Play Store inbuilt for the first time. So the users can install Wearable supported apps from Play Store directly onto their smartwatches without worrying or looking for sideloading. The Android Wear 2.0 will also integrate the Android Pay via NFC and AI-powered Google Assistant. The official build was expected to launch back in the end of 2016, but google has postponed it to February due to some issues faced on developer preview builds.
