Android Wear 6.0.1 Marshmallow Update Released

7 Mar , 2016  

The Android Wear 6.0.1 Marshmallow update has been releasing out to the public on their Moto 360 Gen 2, Hauwei Watch, and more. With Android Wear smartwatch makers Huawei, and ASUS having the hardware for features that weren’t out yet, we have to give them props. This makes us interested in looking forward to what Huawei and ASUS are developing for future generations of Wear devices. Let’s take a a look at the new 6.0.1 update.


Android Wear Speaker Support

Sound settings can let you change media volume, alarms, and ring volume for phone calls. It’s great that there are finally multiple implications that we can use for the new Android Wear speaker support update. People can now listen to their music on their Android Wear smartwatch without a pair of bluetooth headphones. Alarms on smartwatches use the traditional vibration feature which probably has around an 85% success rate depending on the situation. A deep sleeper or even someone that should have gotten more sleep can now have an improved alarm without sleeping with their smartphones.  Android Wear smartwatch apps of course have more interactivity with sound implementation such as the Video for Android Wear app.



Android Wear 6.0.1 Marshmallow Update Gestures

We’re not advocating that one should go on a gesture frenzy, but for it to be used in appropriate intervals. There’s no need to interactive with your smartwatch for extended periods of time for the most part where you can just pull out your phone. If you’re deep within various menus from entering cards and menus via gestures, you can shake you watch to completely go back to the home watchface screen.



With this new Android Wear Marshmallow update being a key upgrade to the Android Wear smartwatch ecosystem, we’re expecting more performance tweaks until the next big update hits. What do you expect to see come to next beyond the Android Wear 6.0.1 Marshmallow update? We’ll have more on Android Wear here at Android Wear Base.
