Google launches official Android Wear companion app, new section for Wear apps on Play Store

Google tonight made a pair of enhancements to the Play Store for the lucky people with an Android Wear device. First off, the company has released the official Android Wear companion app for Android. This app connects with your Android Wear device (i.e. the Gear Live or G Watch) and allows you to control voice action preferences, adjust notification settings, and configure various other settings for your watch.

This evening Google also launched a dedicated category on the Play Store for apps designed for Android Wear. The selection is sparse at this point, but does include some notable apps like Evernote, IFTTT, Eat24 Food Delivery, Google Maps, and Google Hangouts.

You can download the Android Wear companion app and view the “Apps for Android Wear” page on the Play Store now.
