Google had launched its first ever smartwatch, the Pixel Watch, over a month. Now, the company is rolling our the first ever update for its companion app to offer fixes and upgrades to the new wearable product. So here are all the details.
The new Pixel Watch app update from the Search Engine giant is called the November 2022 Pixel Watch app update and brings bug fixes and various improvements. The changes are primarily focused on three areas for improved “Fitbit experiences and integration.” First, it has added the Fitbit integration setting on the App’s home screen itself. Furthermore, it has also made it easier to setup through single tap from within the Pixel Watch app. The Fitbit sync information has also been made accessible via the home screen.
The latest update for the Pixel Watch app also brings bug fixes to the eSIM setup process as well. Lastly, Google is also bringing new additions to Tips and Support section within the Pixel Watch app. So now, users can watch a 3D tutorial of the Watch right after the OOBE. Notably, the change that is more immediately visible is the Fitbit section, which is being moved to the home screen. This makes sense since one had to open the Fitbit app or tile on your smartwatch to open the application on their paired smartphones.
One could even go to the Fitbit app and swim through settings to sync health information. But all of these were quite tedious. So the new update brings some much welcomed changes. The current app build is version 126.96.36.1997318422, which the company stated will start rolling out via Play Store and “continue over the next few weeks.”
