Here’s the Pixel Watch Photos and Google Home face for Wear OS
We now know what the Google Photos watch face we spotted last month looks like, with today’s Play Store listings also showing more Google Home and personal security for the Pixel Watch.
Given the popularity of watch faces that show off family and friends, it’s no surprise that Google has one ready for the Pixel Watch from day one.
Named “Photos” (via Mishaal Rahman on Twitter), you get a circular crop with two possible configurations for date (displayed as day + date) and time (one or two lines). It’s more reminiscent of the Android 12 lock screen. It may also be possible to have images change and cycle through them automatically throughout a set period.
Meanwhile, the screenshot of the on-device watch face picker reveals “Pilot” – an homage to mechanical watches with enlarged 6/9/12 – in full, while we see names like “Ink ” and “Pacific”.
Then we have Google Home again for Wear OS and its simple card list design. Smart home devices (thermostat, lights, etc.) are housed in a rounded rectangle that includes an icon, background color, device name, and/or room. There are plus and minus buttons for temperature, while you’ll probably be able to swipe to adjust brightness, like on Android and the phone app. We also get an example of the “Person Seen” notification.
As with Google Photos, there’s no suggestion that Google Home will be exclusive to Pixel Watch. That said, it’s very likely to launch first on Google’s wearable.
Finally, we have the Personal Safety application, which was presented at I/O 2022 to quickly call predefined contacts or emergency services.
