Google to sync permissions across Android phones and Wear OS

Google is planning to introduce a new feature for Wear OS that will allow app permissions to be synchronized between an Android smartphone and a Wear OS smartwatch.

Initially hidden within the Pixel Watch companion app, the feature will allow users to grant permissions on their phone, which will then automatically apply to their smartwatch. The “Sync permissions from phone” option is part of a new “Device details” submenu within the companion app.

According to the information via the Google News channel, the new feature is developed to simplify the user experience by removing the need to individually set permissions for apps on different devices.

For example, if a user allows a navigation app to access their location on their phone, the same permission will be set on the smartwatch without any additional steps.

While the “Sync permissions from phone” option remains inactive for now, its activation could significantly enhance the Wear OS experience. This feature is expected to extend beyond the Pixel Watch to other Wear OS devices.
