Samsung Gear S2 Upcoming Update Brings In New Features

Samsung’s Gear S2 might not be an Android wear watch. However, it is one of the most popular smartwatches available for the Android phone outside of that particular platform. As per the report by SamMobile, the upcoming update will bring new features, such as the ability to install the suggested apps directly from the watch, set photos as the watchface background and many more.
Among all the new features, the one which attracts the attention in this particular new forthcoming update is the ability for the users to be able to install the suggested apps directly from the watch itself. You do not need to go on to search for the phone; for example, if you quickly need to install the calculator app, from the “Get more app” screen, you will now be able to tap on a quick shortcut so as to open the Galaxy apps on your phone, you can also swipe towards the right side so as to find a series of the suggested apps that you will be able to install with just a tap.

This update also goes on to bring some minor updates to the World Clock as well as the Weather apps available on the watch. The World Clock app now comes with a flatter design with a watchface, which changes the color, depending on the time of the day. The Weather apps now show UV index information.

The Gear S2 will now entice the users to create a watchface which gives the opportunity to the users to use images which are already stored in your phone. Around 10 images can be chosen and these will go on to cycle every time you wake up the watch display. You can also choose between a digital as well as an analog face.
This update also has the option to start a timer, using the S Voice feature along with a new menu for managing the notifications. It is being expected that this new update will roll out in the upcoming weeks.
