Wear OS Jetpack libraries now in stable!

In order to help you develop high quality Wear OS apps, we have been busy updating the Android Jetpack Wear OS libraries and recently delivered the first five stable Jetpack Wear OS libraries:


How these compare to the Wearable Support library

The Android Jetpack Wear OS libraries contain all the familiar functionality you’ve grown used to in the old Wearable Support library, better support for Wear OS 3.0, and the features listed above (many of which are written 100% in Kotlin).

As always with Android Jetpack, the new Wear OS libraries help you follow best practices, reduce boilerplate, and create performant, glanceable experiences for your users.

The core stable libraries are available now. The Watch Face and Complications libraries are in alpha and will be released as stable later this year. Once that launches, the Wearable Support Library will officially be deprecated.

We strongly recommend you migrate the libraries within your Wear OS apps from the Wearable Support library to their AndroidX equivalents as we make them available in stable.

Note: The Android Jetpack libraries are meant to be replacements for the Wearable Support Libraries and aren’t designed to be used together.

Try them out and let us know what you think!

Thank you!
