Moto 360 receives Android Wear 1.3 update, that will update your smartwatch to firmware build LCA44B.
About a week ago Google Android Developers announced that they are rolling out a new update to Android Wear 1.3.0, software which includes support for interactive watch faces (see gif below). With this new feature one can detect taps on the watch face to provide information quickly, thus making the watch face functionality more useful and engaging.
Now, Motorola is announcing that this Android Wear 1.3.0 update will begin making its way on to Moto 360 smartwatches very soon. Besides the Interactive Watch Faces, the latest software build LCA44B will also add:
- Together – Two Android Wear users can stay close throughout the day by turning their entire watch face into a space for sharing. Once you’ve paired your watch face with a partner’s, you’ll be able to share things like photos and emojis, and more.
- Google Translate for Wear – Translate a conversation into any of the 44 available languages, then flip your wrist to show the translation to someone else. When they respond in their own language, flip your wrist back, and you’ll see in a translation of what they’ve just said. The watch must be connected to a phone with internet access via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.
- Weather microapp – Shows current weather conditions and four-day forecast for your current location. To open the weather microapp, swipe left on the watch face, then scroll down and tap Weather.
- Privacy improvement for notifications – Your notifications won’t show in full screen until the watch is oriented in a way that only you can see it. This feature prevents others from reading an incoming notification when your watch screen is pointed away from you.
- Bug Fixes – A variety of system optimizations to improve performance and stability.
