Android Wear is getting updated in a big way this month. Google is beginning to roll out an update with some major new features for Android Wear, including the ability to make and listen to calls directly on the watch. You’ll need a watch with a speaker to do that, of course, and only two watches currently have one: the Huawei Watch and the 49mm model of the Asus ZenWatch 2. The update also adds in expanded support for controlling Wear watches with gestures — though you may need someone to decode them for you — and the ability to dictate messages to be sent from apps like Hangouts and WhatsApp.
