December 20, 2016 Comments Off on Google acquires Cronologics
As part of its plans to launch its Android Wear 2.0 in 2017, Google has acquired Cronologics, a startup that specialises in developing operating systems for wearable devices. Cronologics is the company behind the OS of the CoWatch, an Android-powered smartwatch that has Amazon’s voice-activated Alexa personal assistant software built-in. For Google, Cronologics is a logical partner to build its next-generation Android Wear. The Cronologics OS is already fully compatible with Android, and Google may want to use this technology to advance its Android Wear’s voice recognition capabilities as well as enable it to pair with other connected devices like the Google Home.
