Android Wear app now available for all in Google Play

Android Wear and LG G Watch

As folks begin receiving their Android Wear watches from Google Play and other retailers, Google has finally opened up the official Android Wear setup app for everyone. The Android Wear app is your one-stop place for setting up your Android Wear device with your phone, administering apps and tweaking settings — just like the MyGlass app for Google Glass.

Of course the app doesn't do a whole lot if you haven't gotten your hands on an Android Wear device, though it does give you a link to the Play Store with a list of all available Android Wear-supporting apps. But if you have one of the first two Android Wear devices or are expecting one in the mail this week, be sure to grab the Android Wear app from Google Play so you're ready the minute that box arrives.

Android L preview: Do Not Disturb mode

Do Not Disturb in Android L

Proper system-level "do not disturb" settings have been a hit-or-miss feature depending on what manufacturer's phone you choose, and was a completely missing feature on stock Android devices — a void filled by countless free and paid third-party apps that have done a great job. For as good as these apps are, there's really nothing that can beat a well-done system settings pane that lets you cancel out sounds, calls and notifications on your schedule at the lowest level.

Luckily one of the many improvements in Android L is the inclusion of a proper Do Not Disturb mode, which helps you keep your phone silent when it needs to be whether that's overnight on a schedule or just for a limited one-off situation.
