static final @NonNull String

We support specifying whether notifications should be bridged from the phone to the wearable in the Wear app manifest file.

The value of the notification bridge mode meta-data element in the case where the Wear app does not want notifications to be bridged from the phone to the wearable.

static final @NonNull String

static final @NonNull String

The name of the meta-data element in the watch face service manifest declaration used to assign a non-circular preview image to the watch face.

Public methods

static @NonNull int
getPreviewDrawableResourceId(
    @NonNull Context context,
    @NonNull boolean circular
)
static @NonNull boolean

Determines whether a given context has notification bridging enabled.

static @NonNull boolean

Constants

NOTIFICATION_BRIDGE_MODE_BRIDGING

@NonNull
public static final @NonNull String NOTIFICATION_BRIDGE_MODE_BRIDGING

The value of the notification bridge mode meta-data element in the case where the Wear app wants notifications to be bridged from the phone to the wearable.

NOTIFICATION_BRIDGE_MODE_METADATA_NAME

@NonNull
public static final @NonNull String NOTIFICATION_BRIDGE_MODE_METADATA_NAME

We support specifying whether notifications should be bridged from the phone to the wearable in the Wear app manifest file. Simply add a meta-data element to the Wear app manifest with the name "com.google.android.wearable.notificationBridgeMode" and either the value NO_BRIDGING or the value BRIDGING. If you choose not to update your Wear app manifest, then notifications will be bridged by default from the phone to the wearable.

NO_BRIDGING means that phone notifications will not be bridged to the wearable if the wearable app is installed.

BRIDGING means that phone notifications will be bridged to the wearable, unless they are posted with setLocalOnly(true).

Example AndroidManifest.xml meta-data element for NO_BRIDGING:

<meta-data
    android:name="com.google.android.wearable.notificationBridgeMode"
    android:value="NO_BRIDGING" />

Example AndroidManifest.xml meta-data element for BRIDGING:

<meta-data
    android:name="com.google.android.wearable.notificationBridgeMode"
    android:value="BRIDGING" />

NOTIFICATION_BRIDGE_MODE_NO_BRIDGING

@NonNull
public static final @NonNull String NOTIFICATION_BRIDGE_MODE_NO_BRIDGING

The value of the notification bridge mode meta-data element in the case where the Wear app does not want notifications to be bridged from the phone to the wearable.

STANDALONE_METADATA_NAME

@NonNull
public static final @NonNull String STANDALONE_METADATA_NAME

The name of the meta-data element in the Wear app manifest for specifying whether this app does not require a companion phone app. The value should be set to "true" or "false".

Wear apps that do not require a phone side companion app to function can declare this in their AndroidManifest.xml file by setting the standalone meta-data element to true as shown in the following example. If this value is true, all users can discover this app regardless of what phone they have. If this value is false (or not set), only users with compatible Android phones can discover this app.

<meta-data
android:name="com.google.android.wearable.standalone"
android:value="true" />

WATCH_FACE_PREVIEW_CIRCULAR_METADATA_NAME

@NonNull
public static final @NonNull String WATCH_FACE_PREVIEW_CIRCULAR_METADATA_NAME

The name of the meta-data element in the watch face service manifest declaration used to assign a circular preview image to the watch face. The value should be set to a drawable reference.

<meta-data
    android:name="com.google.android.wearable.watchface.preview_circular"
    android:resource="@drawable/preview_face_circular" />

WATCH_FACE_PREVIEW_METADATA_NAME

@NonNull
public static final @NonNull String WATCH_FACE_PREVIEW_METADATA_NAME
