Hi guys, only want to share my experience trying to install the google app and google assistant in my Samsung Galaxy Watch 4

1) Download the google app (wear os) on apk mirror

2) active the developer mode in the watch, turn on debug mode and debug on wifi

3) install "Wear installer" on my phone and connect to the watch, from here traspassing and install the google app on the watch

4) the app not show in the launcher, but i can change the predefined assistent app to Google!!! I show you in the pictures added

I have no idea how to make this work, but is promissing!! Maybe somebody read this and can make it, or maybe this almost compatibility mean that the official app is coming in the near futue!

Sorry for my english, im spanish

That's been talked about before and it's super sketchy. You have to install some random guys app store, give his app tons of permissions, pay him then you get a limited version of Google assistant.

His telegram group have banned people for asking about the security concerns of his apps permissions. Super sketchy

Interesting. The video in Spanish isn't terribly helpful, though. I am sure there are others out there. Seems like there would be a simpler way to sideload to the watch, but maybe not. Are you nervous about running some random APK? Good find on the "default app" > assistant. Didn't even notice that until now. How are your "activating" the assistant when you want to use it? Do you have to launch the app each time? Or did you bind it to a button or action on your watch face or something?

I just set custom key to double press to activate Google Assistant.

Is there also a non-telegram download link somewhere?

It's a gimped version of the assistant....can't play music on Spotify or youtube music, can't use find directions or navigate to commands....when not connected to the phone on bluetooth it struggles to process queries. And most frustrating of all.....screen powers down terminating the request mid way....and setting as default assistant makes no difference, long press still opens up ****sby. Need to remap double tap home to launch app....which takes a while to fire up

Can't wait for Google to release it officially....

Yes I agree it's frustrating but it's useful for making shopping lists, calls, messages etc... It's best we have for now, hopefully official one comes as soon as possible

Bugjeager works just fine.

Chrome is a bonus.
krogoth, thanks again. I finally went ahead and tried it. Sent the two APK's to my phone with Airdroid. Put watch in developer mode, figured out how to turn on ADB and force wifi on (I had to disconnect bluetooth). Loaded Bugjeager on my phone. Went into developer options on watch to find IP address, connected to it in Bugjeager, finally figured out how to upload an app :) Bingo- it is on the watch! Binded it to top button double press, turned off ADB, turned off Wifi and BT back on....

It actually works (at least for now). Obviously not designed for round screens. Even has a dialog on the bottom I can't dismiss, since I can't see it. But it can answer questions (what is the time? What is the square root of 13? What is my battery level? etc). When I ask to SEE something like "show me a picture of a cat", nothing appears. I installed Chrome too, to see if it would launch that to show it... it doesn't. I don't think it can show anything due to the lack of space on the screen and no way to navigate (that I can figure out, anyway). Also times out too quickly sometimes.

Anyway, I will play with it some. It might have a lot of issues, but it is a hell of a lot more functional than NOTHING!

Is this still the version where you have to donate to the creator ?
And do you have to give out your Google account to a third party (or creator) ?

    Unfortunately the official GA isn't avaible in a lot of country (my poor Italy included)... There Is a way to sideload the apk and make It work? Speaking english isn't a problem.
    Use Bugjaeger app connect to your watch with wifi adb to your phone and try sideloading this official Google Assitant app pulled from my Watch4Classic 46mm N America Region 😉

    Assitant and chrome in attachment.
    Booth are working. Just sideload it, and set assistant as default.
