Google Pixel Watch app is now available for download on Play Store
Ahead of this morning’s Made by Google event, the official Pixel Watch companion app has arrived for download on the Play Store.
Originally unveiled at Google I/O in May, the Pixel Watch is the first Google-branded smartwatch and among the first devices to run Wear OS 3. Like all other Wear OS 3 watches, the Pixel Watch requires its own separate companion app instead of using the classic “Wear OS by Google Smartwatch” app.
This morning, the Google Pixel Watch app’s Play Store listing went public, allowing fans to download and install the companion preemptively. The first thing you’ll probably notice is a newly unveiled icon with a style similar to Google’s recent four-color icon designs. The Pixel Watch app icon is aptly inspired by the watch itself, with two shades of blue used to form the hands of a clock.
The listing includes several screenshots of Pixel Watch configuration options such as watch faces, tiles, and color choices. You’ll also find details on setting up watch and phone notifications, and a list of tiles.
By setting up the app on our own device, the intro page includes a cleverly worded link: “No watch? Time to get one!” For now, this just leads to the Google Store homepage rather than a specific Pixel Watch landing page. As expected, the app requires you to be on a device running Android 8.0 Oreo or higher.
