Wear OS Smartwatch Can Store Backup to Google One

Google is now improving the new Wear OS features to get a better user experience for users who use this device with their Android phones.

The latest Google Play Services update with beta version 22.32.12 provides a new feature that allows users to backup data from smartwatch when users connect to a new device. You can see a string titled: companion_backup_opt_in_title, which contains the prompts: Back up your device with Google One/ Backup by Google One/ Choose a backup account.

Currently, users need to reset the watch when they want to connect to a new Android smartphone. Of course, adding the backup to Google One is a much smoother experience.

As we know, the Google One is a paid Google subscription. But, users don’t need to use a Google One subscription when they want to backup data from a smartwatch. Google One pay more cash for getting extra storage, so we don’t think Google would put a feature like this behind a paywall.

Given the timing of this finding, Google is expected to release this new feature in the upcoming Pixel smartwatch launch event, rumoured to arrive in October along with the Pixels 7 and 7 Pro.
