Google is modifying its search bar on its mobile site

Whatever the reason for the apparent stagnation in the Android Wear ecosystem, it appears that Google is looking to shake things up-starting with a rebranding of the OS to 'Wear OS'.
With Android Wear usage way behind that of the Apple Watch and notably no major tech brands launching wearables at this year's MWC something needed to happen, but this wasn't necessarily what anyone expected.
Android wears are mainly used for tracking the physical activities such as walk, run, and other exercises.
For a while now, it has been possible to pair an Android smartwatch with an iOS device. By connecting the mobile devices, the wearable can access apps such as Facebook Messenger, WeChat, WhatsApp, Skype, the guardian, and Runkeeper. It shows a new "W" logo featuring Google's blue, yellow, green, and red color scheme, along with the name "Wear OS". They haven't disclosed any details regarding changing name, but the company must have wanted to remove the Android from the name of a device, as the device is not limited to Android only. The 12.4 version allowed to enable the preview of Android P Developer. In addition, the search giant will also give Wear OS a new logo that resembles that of the Google Assistant.
While it still has "Google" in the name, it's another step away from the Android name and the search giants continues to shift products that aren't just available on Android (or will be in the future), under its own name.
There has been no official word from Google on the new name.
