The Pixel Watch Faces update introduces a modern update for the Assistant complication. This time around, Google Assistant's color and font have been adjusted for an even sleeker appearance.
This is an exciting update for the Pixel Watch, adding to Wear OS's already great experience. If you've ever felt that your current watch could use some extra flair, this face will definitely do the trick!
Google Pixel Watch Faces' update adds a vibrant hue to the Assistant complication, matching the rest of the watch face. This change is welcome and makes the Assistant much more prominent than before.
The Assistant Complication for iPhone allows you to quickly get information when needed. For instance, you can tell the Assistant to create a note in your Keep account or set an action item for that day by tapping on its complication.
This complication is one of the most useful on the Pixel Watch and it has been upgraded to work with Android phones running the latest version of Google Assistant. Additionally, two new complications allow you to quickly access Google Keep notes and your to-do list without having to navigate through menus.
Like most of the features available on the Pixel Watch, you can customize its color and layout. This can be done either through the Pixel Watch app on your connected Android phone or directly by editing a watch face directly on the Pixel Watch itself.
Editing a complication allows you to select which data sources and how the information is presented. These customizations can be an excellent way to make your smartwatch more useful and personalized, but they require some technical know-how.
Open the Pixel Watch app on your paired Android device and navigate to the Faces tab. From there, select an existing watch face or tap +Add New Button to create a new one.
Once the watch face is loaded, select which complications you would like to edit from the list. Swipe left and right to browse through various styles and complication layouts, then push the crown on your Pixel Watch to save changes.
When adding a new complication, you have the option of selecting its position and font style. Furthermore, you can decide which text lines and icons will appear, as well as the color of the font.
The settings area of a watch face offers plenty of power and customization options. Here, you can adjust virtually every element on display - from widget size and number to clock style and coloring - with ease. Playing around here can be both entertaining and surprisingly straightforward!
Google Pixel Watch Faces app is getting an update that enhances the Assistant complication. While this change is minor, it does make the Assistant more prominent on your watch face.
First and foremost, the complication now features a color scheme similar to that of the Wear OS clockface included with Pixel phones. Furthermore, an extra button on the watch face can now be held down to launch Google Assistant.
This is an efficient way to quickly access Assistant without opening the app. It's much faster and simpler than using your phone's voice assistant, which is another available option on your device.
Additionally, you'll be able to access Assistant from any point on your watch - even when it's locked. This is an impressive addition that will save you a considerable amount of time in the long run.
However, this change comes with some drawbacks, including a potentially reduced battery life. When activating Google Assistant through either your side button or complication, they will continue listening for "Hey Google" until your watch's screen has been turned off - potentially draining battery more quickly than expected.
If you want to reduce this battery drain, you can disable hotword detection in your watch's Quick Settings panel by tapping "Hey Google listening."
Another change with this update is that Google has disabled the watch's hotword activation of Assistant when the screen is locked. This eliminates battery draining situations when your microphones are constantly listening for that phrase.
At present, you can only activate the Assistant by holding either the side button or tapping a complication on the watch face. That works just fine for now; you can always turn it back on later if desired.
If you own a Pixel and would like to give the Watch Faces update a try, you can download it from the Play Store now for free. While the free version provides most features, upgrading to the premium version for $3 will unlock more advanced controls and capabilities.
Google is releasing an update to their Pixel Watch Faces app that tweaks some of the complications already preloaded on the smartwatch. This includes a new font for the Assistant complication that matches whatever color scheme is set on the face.
Complications are useful widgets that display timely, relevant data directly on the watch face so people can see it every time they raise their wrist. They offer an efficient way to get essential data without opening an app.
Some complications have a predetermined set of data, while others are dynamic. They might display an organized list of tasks for the day or allow you to tap on a shortcut to open an app.
You can select a complication from either your phone's Faces screen or the Watch app on your device (which also allows editing faces). Once selected, push the crown on your watch to save changes.
To make a complication effective on your watch, identify essential, dynamic content that people want to view quickly and efficiently. Then, discover ways of displaying it quickly and conveniently.
One such app is Todoist, which features a daily progress and day summary complication that displays how many tasks have been completed. Furthermore, it has a shortcut complication which lets you open the app directly from your watch face.
As with most watch face designs, you can customize the aesthetic of complications as well as their layouts. You can alter the size of a complication, its style (curved or border), and whether or not it displays a date.
Some complications on a watch face are specific to that watch face, like the battery complication which indicates how much power remains in your watch. But some are more general in nature, like the Weather complication which can display your current temperature or provide forecasts for up to two hours ahead.
The weather complication on your watch face can be customized to match, whether you prefer using it on the Digital Dashboard or a more classic face. Furthermore, you can create an individual custom weather widget to display weather conditions around the world.
The Google Pixel Watch Faces update customizes the Assistant complication with a new background to go along with its other improvements. It also allows you to assign an app shortcut for quick access to the Assistant from any screen on your device.
Additionally, the Pixel Watch offers some of the most useful watch face features to enhance its experience. These include health metrics and device actions from your favorite fitness tracking app, plus a smart notification that alerts you when weather changes. With such features at its disposal, this complication truly stands out in the crowd.
In addition to these features, the Assistant's primary benefit is an easy-to-access overview of all pending notifications on one enlarged screen. It's an efficient way to avoid having to scroll through dozens of messages just to find what you need.
Pixel Watch users who utilize the Google Assistant will find this new feature a huge productivity booster. I don't know about you, but for me personally, being able to quickly glance at my incoming alerts without opening an app is by far the most efficient way to stay organized throughout my day.
See how it all works from the video above. Customizing the Assistant complication with your favorite colors and fonts is simple - plus, it looks the best among all of Google Watch faces available for the gen. Plus, no coding is necessary - making this an incredibly versatile watch face option that will surely make you smile every time you glance at it. So don't hesitate - give this one a try now!
