Google has released a new component for its Wear OS smartwatches: Google Tiles. Tiles makes information more readily available to users and gives them easier access to functions such as the weather, news, calendar events, their heart rate and a timer. Google will continue to release new Tiles to expand upon the existing ones. Tiles are able to be rearranged from their original order, offering users a customized experience. They can be moved by dragging and dropping into any desired order.

Wear OS smartwatches will have access to Tiles based on the features and capabilities of the individual watches. Tiles that would not be available to certain models will not be accessible. Tiles was a function previously only available on Google Fit, with past versions only offerings single swipe capabilities.
