Google could soon rebrand Android Wear, changing name to 'Wear OS'

Google is tweaking its search bar on its mobile site

We decompiled the Google Play Services beta APK, and indeed found several references to Wear OS throughout the strings. Unlike its previous grey display background, the Android wear 2.8 now features a darker background display. Now, the company is aiming towards changing the name of the OS with Wear OS as all the new reports confirmed the same news.

Google may change the name of its Android Wear platform to Wear OS, according to evidence discovered inside the latest Google Play Services app update, and the Android P Developer Preview software.

There's no official word from Google on the instance; however we believe that Google will announce the new name with the Android P in line on this year's annual- Google I/O conference in May. However, there are some theories on why the wearable operating system will be renamed as Wear OS. After all, one can use Android Wear watches with iPhones too.

While this doesn't necessarily mean the announcement is imminent, the new discovery does seem to indicate the rebranding will happen at least by the time Android P gets released.

GOOGLE APPEARS to be planning to rebrand its wearables operating system Android Wear as Wear OS in a future update.

Android Wear used to be my personal favorite wearable OS, and I religiously wore the Samsung Gear Live, Moto 360, and Huawei Watch.

Google is known for bringing in design customizations and UI changes in Android and its other native apps. A while back, companies were racing to unveil new Android Wear gear. This will clear the confusion about the Wearables in the users and they will be easily paired up with cross platform smartwatches to share different things together.
