No matter who manufactured your Android Wear watch, “the latest and greatest software” will come direct from Google, the search giant has confirmed.

Google Now Launcher

Google today announced that it is making its Google Now Launcher available to all Android devices running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean or higher. Previously, the launcher was only available for the Nexus and Google Play edition devices.


LG has already confirmed that it has not been asked to produce a new Nexus smartphone for Google — and that’s because the search giant has teamed up with Motorola instead, according to a new report. Despite selling Motorola to Lenovo last year, Google has reportedly asked the Moto X maker to build a Nexus 6 “phablet” with a much larger display.

Google updated Chromecast this week to finally enable Android Mirroring, a feature which lets you beam everything you see on your Android-powered smartphone or tablet to your TV. It’s great for showing off your photos, surfing the web on the big screen, and for enjoying content inside of apps that don’t yet offer direct Chromecast support.
