Google is testing Rounded Search Bar on the mobile site

Google is testing Rounded Search Bar on the mobile site

Retooling the Android Wear platform to Wear OS actually makes a lot of sense now, especially as it's not for Android-only compatibility devices anymore.

The new icon appears to be the letter "W" in Google's traditional color scheme and would represent the new moniker which might be "Watch OS".

Android wears are mainly used for tracking the physical activities such as walk, run, and other exercises. By connecting the mobile devices, the wearable can access apps such as Facebook Messenger, WeChat, WhatsApp, Skype, the guardian, and Runkeeper.

Xi: China, S. Korea should bolster communication over N. Korea developments
China earlier expressed its support for the USA plan to hold an unprecedented summit with the North by the end of May. Chung and Suh briefed President Moon Jae-in for about an hour on Sunday after returning from their meeting with U.S.

Google didn't clearly reveal about refreshing the design, but preview images hint at a major facelift with its next-gen Android OS.

Not only has a new logo popped up online, but reports suggest the name is changing too. They haven't disclosed any details regarding changing name, but the company must have wanted to remove the Android from the name of a device, as the device is not limited to Android only. It's essentially Google's wearable Android and its answer to watchOS, the operating system Apple offers on its Apple Watch. The last stable version of software 12.2 allowed to receive nearby notifications. What we see here is no different; the company seems to be trying out a more rounded search bar, one that matches more closely with the one seen on the Pixel Launcher, on its mobile site. The search giant is spotted testing the new user interface and the biggest change in it will be the inclusion of a round search bar. Unlike its previous grey display background, the Android wear 2.8 now features a darker background display.
