Easier access to notifications and more

Starting things off with the notifications, the notifications menu has become easily accessible as a simple swipe down will bring about the menu. Furthermore, a new set of icons have been added to the menu. Swiping up will bring the notifications. For a change, smart replies have been added to the notifications menu and you won’t even have to leave the notifications menu to do that.

As you go about your busy day, every minute matters. We’re evolving the design of Wear OS by Google to help you get the most out of your time—providing quicker access to your information and notifications, more proactive help from the Google Assistant, and smarter health coaching—all with a swipe of your finger.Google Blog
