As per a leak detailing as much, Google has announced a new Wear OS UI feature known as Tiles that grants users access to quickly toggle between information using simple, natural swipes.

Tiles however, cover a variety of content, allowing users to arrange and rapidly access everything from the weather to their fitness aims. Tiles can be rearranged from the smartwatch or using the Wear OS smartphone app.

Some details about Tiles, including its name, leaked in the most recent Wear OS update, in which data miners found hints buried in apk code.

Google’s officially unveiled Wear OS Tiles feature looks much alike to what we had anticipated, enabling users to arrange swipeable tiles on their device for customized, readily available info.

Over the past few months, Google has focused on swipeable actions in Wear OS; Tiles is the latest evolution in this design philosophy. The feature covers Goals, Next Event, Forecast, Heart Rate, Headlines, and Timer. Each Tile is self-explanatory and covers some of the most regularly used functions.

You can however retrieve the Tiles by swiping left on their Wear OS smartwatch’s display. By touching and holding a particular Tile, the user can drag it into a new location in the Tiles lineup. For instance, someone who frequently checks the weather but seldom sets timers may wish to move the Forecast Tile to the front of the row.

Google plans to include more Tiles to Wear OS in the future, though it didn’t specify which ones may be in the pipeline for the next release. Of course, other Wear OS actions and data remain available on the wearables.

Users can expect the new Tiles to arrive in June. Google says that the features, will vary a bit based on the user’s phone OS, in addition to the watch model and user’s country.
