Notifications from the Nest smartphone app will proceed to indicate up in your watch. Plus, anybody with a Put on OS watch can use Google Assistant to regulate Nest units with their voice. Apple Watch homeowners don’t have that fallback, nevertheless.

It’s placing even much less work into supporting the Apple Watch, with 9to5Google noting that Google Maintain is the corporate’s final remaining watchOS app.
