Wear OS Permissions

Post by Mobvoi » Thu Sep 12, 2019 2:52 pm

You can check your Wear OS permissions as follows:
  • Phone settings - Apps - Wear OS - Notifications - Turn on 'Show notifications',and then turn on all the switches on the bottom.
  • Phone settings - Apps - Wear OS - Permissions - Turn on all of the permissions.
  • Phone settings - Apps - Wear OS - Battery - Make sure 'Optimize battery usage' shown as 'Not optimized'.
  • On the phone home screen- Click on the multitasking menu- Find Wear OS card - tap Wear OS icon - choose 'Lock this app' or the pin icon to lock the app running in phone background.
  • Phone settings- Apps- Messages -Notifications- Turn on 'Show notifications'.
  • Phone settings- Apps- another Messages app(Samsung phone has 2 text apps which are all named as Messages...) -Notifications- Turn on 'Show notifications'.
These directions can vary depending on your phone make/model and android version but the settings exist in all versions so you may have to use your best judgement to find them. You can ask for help by posting your phone make model and android version. Often times another community member with the same configuration as you may respond.
