Facebook for Android adds Wearable support

Facebook, Smartwatches

Android Wear just became even more useful. The new smartwatch platform has just won the support of Facebook – which will be pushing notifications to watches from version 9 of the app (so expect that to land in your app updates soon).


According to Facebook’s Ian Lake (posting on, umm, Google Plus, presumably out of pity) users will be able to like posts, or even reply using voice straight from their watch. Useful too is the ability to mute conversations right from the watch, so your wrist isn’t buzzing all day.
