Android Wear has disappeared from the Google Store

Android Wear has disappeared from the Google Store

Amidst yesterday;s reveal of a plethora of Google products including the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, Google Home Mini, and the Google Home Max, Google appears to have quietly removed the Android Wear section from its online store.

In addition, when accessing the MODE watch bands page, a user is automatically redirected to the Google Store homepage. Below: Old Google Store menu with the "Watches" category.

But it could mean that the smartwatches Google had in its store weren't selling particularly well, and that Wear isn't as important as it once was to Google.

The latest Google Play Store version is now available to download, only 10 hours after the previous update was released. Also, Google recently rolled out the first Android 8.0 Oreo beta for Android Wear, so it would appear to still be in its plans. Just tap the Google Assistant shortcut and it will be ready to help you.

Google Play Store has been updated to version 8.3.41 directly from the 8.2.58; the new update has skipped a lot of build numbers in between which arises the question are there any significant changes in the update or not. While it was expected that the current generation Android Wear devices would still be available, Google has totally removed the Android Wear section from it's latest Google Store. Gartner estimates that around 310.4 million wearables will be sold globally, an increase of 16.7% year over year. Further, Gartner notes that smartwatches from companies like ASUS, LG, Samsung, Huawei and Sony would account for 15% of the total smartwatch sales by 2021, while Apple will account for 25% of the market.

However, it's too early to be jumping to any conclusions regarding the future of Android Wear.
