Google Is Making It Easier for Developers to Build Android Wearables



With wristband fitness trackers, smartwatches and other tech wearables gaining massive traction, Google will be making it easier for developers to create these types of devices for its Android platform.

Sundar Pichai, Google senior vice president of Android and Chrome, announced at the SXSW conference in Austin on Monday that the company will release a SDK (software developer kit) later this month, The Guardian reports.

Find a Toastmasters meeting near you. You will learn to speak in front of others. There is nothing like the real thing to help your confidence rather than at home by yourself.
