Pebble updates Android and iOS apps bringing Android Wear compatibility out of beta

Last updated:

Pebble have released updates to both their Android and iOS apps bringing Android Wear compatibility out of beta and available for public release.

Pebble’s integration supports a wider selection of Android devices than Android Wear itself — Android 4.0 versus Android 4.3.

The biggest feature of this update is Android Wear support. Now, developers that have already coded their apps to support Android Wear won’t have to do any extra work to make them Pebble-compatible. As long as an app has Android Wear integration, users should be able to receive and interact with notifications from it.

In addition to the updated Android app, Pebble users should also have a firmware update waiting for them. The new firmware, which comes in at version 2.9, brings the changes necessary to interact with Android Wear notifications, along with a number of bug fixes.

Pebble Android App 2.3.0

  • Android Wear Notifications. Reply and act on Android Wear notifications (requires Firmware v2.9+).
  • Pebbler-defined replies. Set your own replies to notifications (up to five, so get creative, buddy!).
  • Reply from Pebble using most Android-compatible SMS messaging apps.
  • Automatic app and watchface updates when Pebble is idle.
  • Support for Android 4.0+ devices.
  • Fixed Issues with Whatsapp notifications.
  • UTF-8 support in PebbleKit JS.
  • Bug fixes and stability improvements.
  • Download 2.3.0 from the Google Play Store.

Pebble iOS App 2.6.4

  • Adds the latest JavaScript Pebble apps available for iOS users in the Pebble appstore.
  • Bug fixes and stability improvements.
  • No major changes from Pebble iOS App v2.6.
  • Download 2.6.4 from the iTunes App Store.

Pebble Firmware 2.9

  • NEW: Android Actionable Notifications. Adds support for actionable notifications and Android Wear compatibility for Pebbles paired with Android smartphones running v4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) or higher and the Pebble Android app v2.3.0 or higher.
  • Bug fixes and stability improvements.
