MacroDroid Update Brings Android Wear Automation

A few months ago, we talked about MacroDroid. For those who don’t remember, MacroDroid is a quite handy application that brings device automation to the next level. MacroDroid makes use of various device sensors to determine many variables such as location, speed, and many others. If you like so see it in action, watch TK’s review on XDA TV.

Applications like MacroDroid, Tasker and Llama are extremely popular among XDA users, but none of them has been available for the fairly new breed of Android Wear smartwatch devices. Well, this unfortunate situation has changed thanks to XDA Forum Member UndeadCretin, who issued an update to MacroDroid. This update is pretty big and brings lots of new functions like:

  • Opening a specific action on the Android Wear device.
  • Creating an Android Wear notification with up to 4 customizable actions.
  • Causing the wear device to vibrate to a specific pattern.
  • Settinh the brightness on the wear device.

These amazing Android Wear-powered devices like the LG G Watch, Samsung Gear Live, and the upcoming Motorola Moto 360 will be able to benefit from various new functions that have been introduced with this update. If your wrist is armed with one of the first generation of Android Wear watches, don’t hesitate to slap MacroDroid onto it. You can get the updated application by visiting the MacroDroid application thread. You can read more about the update by visiting the official MacroDroid blog.
