Google has announced the roll out of a new Android Wear app update. Arriving as version 2.8, the update brings along a couple of changes: improved notification glanceability and darker background.

Here's exactly what the change-log says:

This new update has improved notification glanceability with a new layout which shows more of your message at a glance. We have also made the background darker for better readability.

The company says the update will be rolling out over the next few days, so be patient if you haven't received it yet.

I don't think is Googles decision but Huawei's. I was looking forward to it too...

Nice little update but still not available. I also hope that Google changes their mind about bringing Oreo to original Huawei watch. It deserves it!
