Google adds dedicated section for apps with Android Wear support

Apps for Android Wear on Google PlayAs Android Wear smartwatches start shipping in select markets, Google has published a dedicated section for the Android apps, which are compatible with Android Wear devices.

Currently listed on Google Play webstore, these apps use the given APIs and tools to offer better performance on the Android Wear devices. If you any of these apps, your connected Android device will automatically install the Android Wear part of the app on your smartwatch. You don’t have to do anything apart from probably adjusting the app settings on your Android device to tweak what you want or don’t want to appear on your Android Wear smartwatch.

We expect the list to grow big in the coming weeks as other app developers get their apps ready for the wearable platform.

In related news, Google has also published the Android Wear companion app in Google Play, which will be used by the Android Wear users to control voice action preferences, adjust notification settings, and configure devices.
