Google Keep is no longer available for Wear OS 2 smartwatches

Google Keep is no longer available for Wear OS 2 smartwatches. Currently, searching for the app in the Play Store from the wearable doesn’t even show results. From the visit to the Play Store listing and compatibility with active devices, a statement indicates that the app no ​​longer works on the device with that system — but those who already have Keep downloaded will continue to be able to use it, only without having new updates.

On a Pixel Watch, for example, version 5.22.452.00.97 has Android 11 and higher listed as a requirement. By all indications, this WearOS 2 support must have been lost after the rework of the You material, which modernized everything and apparently removed the yellow accent color present in most of the previous interface, in addition to standardizing all items in a pill format .

The application for creating notes and reminders will be greatly missed by the thousands of users who have WearOS 2 and cannot update it to the new system. So far, the apps that are still available for the system are: Google, Gboard, Fit, Wallet, Messages, Camera, Clock, Wear OS by Google Smartwatch and YouTube Music.
