Android Wear section disappears from Google Store, smartwatches "no longer available"

Android Wear section disappears from Google Store, smartwatches

"The App does not need so much space on mobile phone and it takes a few seconds to download".

The Google Play Store is central to any Android device, well at least for the average Android user.

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.

Amidst surprising great events that Google hosted, silently it unveiled the Google Assistant App in the Play Store.

The more likely explanation at this stage is that Google is looking to emphasise the "Made By Google" moniker, and, since it hasn't actually outright "made" a smartwatch, the LG pairing don't fit with the rest of the Store's line.

The easiest thing to do, and this might also be the first thing you should do when your Google store is not working - Clear Your Google Play Store's Cache.

If none of the two solutions work, then you can try updating your Google Play Store.

We've asked Google about this change and will update this article when we hear from them. The blue speaker icons allow you to preview the voices. Add to that even earlier version numbers (8.2.38, 8.2.37, 8.2.36 and 8.2.32) and you get the idea that Google is pushing out changes as rapidly to the Play Store as it can. Compatible devices already have Assistant installed in them that can be operated by tapping and holding the "home button" or just by saying "Ok, Google".

Noticeably, the new build number seems to have jumped, breaking the circuit since the previous numbers. If you find this an unnecessary addition, you can make use of the same old way of uttering the hot word "Ok Google" and carry on with your query.
