Google has today officially announced that Android Wear will soon work with the iPhone, but only for those who are running iOS 8.2 and have an iPhone 5 or above.

Android Wear will be supported via an app that will work with the very latest of the Android Wear watches, which includes the new LG Watch Urbane only at the moment, but with IFA 2015 kicking off this week there should be a number of other Android Wear from manufactures like ASUS, Motorola and Huawei.

According to Google, older Android Wear devices won’t work with the iOS app because they don’t run the latest version out of the box, however its possible that this might work in the future.

Android Wear for iOS is said to work the same as it would with Android phones, allowing for notifications from services like Gmail, Google Calendar and Google Now, as well as other Apple applications like Google Fit, weather, alarm, agenda and more. Any third-party app notifications that show up on the iPhone will also show on the watch.

It will also work with voice queries, with the ability to change the watch face via the app. According to Google all you need is the Android Wear app to do this.

If you have the LG Watch Urbane then you can try out the app from today, it will slowly roll out the Apple App Store from today.
