This year’s launch of the new and improved Wear OS 3 shows that Google (and Samsung) are serious about giving the Apple Watch more competition to think about, and Google has now issued updated guidelines to raise the “quality bar” for apps on the platform.

The guidelines (via 9to5Google) cover the look of apps, how they handle notifications, and even how they’re listed on the Google Play Store. The aim is to give users a more reliable, intuitive experience across apps they install on their smartwatch.
