Google to play nice with iPhone?

10 April 2015

apple-android Apple and Google are usually at war with each other and sadly, as yet, haven't started firing missiles at each other's head-offices or conducting drive-bys on each other's houses (seriously - if you're going to beef, do it properly).

The lack of decent hostilities might be something to do with the fact that Google are looking at making their Android Wear compatible with iOS. One day, you lucky things, you might well be able to receive iPhone notifications on your Google-having smartwatches.

According to reports, Google is "close to finishing the final technical details" which is required to bridge the gap between the two platforms.

This new version of Android Wear is currently in-development and will work with a companion app on the iPhone which will receive notifications from FaceTime and all that jazz, as well as displaying information from Google Now cards. It is about time really.

Of course, this doesn't mean that Apple will return the favour and actually allow Google to run anything on their devices and if they do, they won't open up their OS to everyone, because they're a bit protective like that.
