Apps are one of the things that make Google’s wearable platform on the list for the best Android smartwatches out there, so knowing how to install and delete apps on Wear OS is essential. With watches like the TicWatch Pro 3 packing so much performance into the package, it can easily handle apps of all types. When Google made the Play Store a standalone feature for Wear OS and its redesign, adding apps to your smartwatch became very easy. That ease also means you will want to know how to uninstall to save space or remove those apps you don’t use anymore.

How to install apps on Wear OS

To install an app, your smartwatch will need to have internet access. This can be via standalone Wi-Fi, LTE if available on your watch, or by the shared connection through Bluetooth to your phone. So, if you have a data connection for your Wear OS watch, let’s get started.

  1. On your smartwatch, press the side button.
  2. Scroll through the app list and select Play Store.

With the Play Store open, you can find apps by choosing a category and browsing or searching for one directly.

  1. Once you find an app you’d like to install, tap on it.
  2. After the app’s listing has opened, you will see the install button, select it.

You can keep track of the install process by staying on the app’s Play Store page. When the app has fully installed, you can tap on the open button. If you left the Play Store listing for the app, you can also find it in your app list on your watch and open it from there.
