Great news for LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition owners who purchase their smartwatches through AT&T, as the carrier has just announced Android Wear 2.0 is now being pushed to the wearable device.

AT&T’s LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition is the last version of the smartwatch received this update after Verizon released it about a month ago. Not to mention the first generation model got Android Wear 2.0 back in April.

It’s been almost seven months since Google launched Android Wear 2.0, but it looks like carriers have been delaying the release of the update for quite a long time.

Nova Launcher 5.4 is now rolling out with Oreo goodness on board

Nova Launcher 5.4 has rolled out of beta and into the stable channel.

The big star of the show is obviously Sesame Shortcuts – a third-party app that’s now deeply integrated into Nova Launcher and allows users to jump to specific apps, or even screens within apps, by simply using the search …

The Galaxy S5 Neo is a relatively old smartphone software-wise. The device was launched exactly 2 years ago with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop on board but received an Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow last year.

Although Android 7.0 Nougat for the Galaxy S5 Neo is only being pushed out in Canada, there’s no doubt that Samsung will continue the roll-out to other countries in the near future. It’s important …

Android Wear 2.0 for Asus ZenWatch 2 rolling out now

The ZenWatch 2 is the newest Asus smartwatch to receive the long-awaited Android Wear 2.0 update. Much later than expected, Asus has kicked off the rollout of the update, but only a small percentage of ZenWatch 2 owners will get the update in the first day.

Looking back in retrospective, Asus is one of the last companies that have delivered on their promise to upgrade its smartwatches to Android Wear 2.0. For some reason, Asus delayed the update for the ZenWatch 2 and 3 a couple of times.

Even now, Asus says Android Wear 2.0 for ZenWatch 2 will be deployed …
