And among those key apps that will come to Wear OS, one stands out above all else, because WhatsApp already works natively on smart watches on the Google platform at least if we use the version beta of the most popular messaging service on the planet.
We never remember this app until we need it, but Google has one of the best tools on the market to search for our devices with Android when we lose them or they are stolen. Now this service you will be able to find the terminals even when they do not have an Internet connectionBeing able to also locate more types of devices, not only the mobile, using technology similar to that of Apple and its AirTags through a collaboration agreement with those of Cupertino.
