Shooting a “Glance” at App Widgets and Wear Tiles

The Android community adopts Jetpack Compose more and more every day. But what about our app widgets and wearables?

In this talk, we will see how we can use “Glance” library to create app widgets and tiles for WearOS. We will briefly talk about how to create “glanceable” UI using composables. We will also see how to use actions for user interactions and create widgets with different size modes. Moreover, we will touch upon the internal state of the Glance app widget and how to update this state outside of the widget process. In addition to this, we will discuss how to apply theming and use dynamic colors in the app widgets. Finally, we will touch on how to create watch tiles using Glance.
