    I don't have the update yet either, but with a brand new Note 4 waiting for me at home sent via Fed Ex, I'm less worried about the watch. :D

    Updates roll out over the course of a week or so. Kind of annoying when there's a new feature you want *now* but it's not like your watch suddenly sucks because it's not running the latest software. It's exactly the same as it was right before the new release was announced.

    I suspect we'll all have it by the end of the weekend. I think last time around I got an update Friday afternoon.

    ok so I am not sure how to use this feature. I went in and checked download to wear for offline play in play music on my phone, but does that try to sync all my music or just a playlist? then how would you access the music and where does it play (no speakers in the 360)?

    I *think* you need the new update to Android Wear as well. I don't have that yet, just the update to the watch. ???

    I just got my watch yesterday and upon setting it up it updated mine. I would rather use the space for apps though and not worry about music. Though my wife uses her square nano as a watch and she has music.

    Whats up guys,

    So its been a few days since the new update for android wear has been out, and Ive been patiently waiting, but still, nothing. havent gotten the update yet. what gives? is there a way to push it through or do I just have to wait. I keep going to the settings and clicking on " software update " and it says " software is up-to-date". :(

    halp

    Unfortunately, there's nothing you can do. It comes when it comes. Just keep your watch charged over 80% so when it does come you won't have to wait. If it's below 80% it won't go.

    Not true! If you hold down the button to go into Settings, select About, select System Updates and then... When you get the green screen stating "System is up to date" screen, just keep clicking/touching that green screen. I did this and at first thought it didn't work but minutes later was propmpted that my update was downloaded and ready to install.

    It will not automatically install if you're below 80%. That's straight from Moto, and held true when it was pushed to my device.

    Thanks for the tip on the work-around though if you're below 80%.

    I suspect this may have been a coincidence, as the update being pushed is controlled by Motorola/Google servers, not you tapping on a screen, but I tried it out because I like a good experiment.

    Bottom line, the updates *should* be rolling out faster, but for some reason are not. I suspect Motorola is just being very cautious, but who knows? In any case, your watch is just as useful now as it was before the update was announced, so what's the big deal? Sure, it might be *more* useful when you get the update, but it's not like any of that was promised to you when you bought the watch (though I'm looking forward to some of the UI updates myself!).

    He's actually right! I did the same thing he said, and boom! Updating!

    I'm still skeptical. As I mentioned, I tried that and nothing happened. Now, 2+ hours later, my watch just popped up the update prompt. My money is still on this just being coincidence, but hey, if it makes you feel better, keep tapping away for future updates.

    Not a coincidence my friend. It is working for many people... Google is your friend.

    And don't be shy with that thanks button ;)

    Maybe it works with hangouts, but I need it to support group messages. That would be nice. I know it's asking for a lot. You don't know, unless you ask right?

    Hmmm... I've reset my watch completely since the update, and every time my screen turns on, it shows "Ok Google" on it...

    Is this happening to anyone else?

    Yes. And it's really annoying.

    And just like that..... It stopped... I wish I could say what I did... But I don't know. I said Ok Google and opened something, I also let it time out after saying the phrase.... But it's stopped!

    Has happened to me before, I think it might be something to do with the face not syncing, (I use facer, but I imagine it well be the sane others) the screen comes on but to a blank screen which is why you tap it again and the OK Google search pops up. As would if the face was showing up

    Moto 360 Release Notes (December 2014)

    INTRODUCTION

    We are rolling out a new Android Wear software update for Moto 360 by Motorola. With this update we have added support for new features and fixed some issues to improve your experience. For more information on Motorola updates and repairs, visitmotorola.com/mymoto360.

    NOTE: You cannot downgrade to a previous software version after installing this update.

    ENHANCEMENTS

    This Moto 360 software update is for all users. After installing the software update you will notice changes that include:

    Third Party Watch Faces Choose from a variety of public watch faces available through the Google Play Store. Watch faces can be selected and configured through the Android Wear app on your phone or directly on your Moto 360. Developers can leverage application programming interfaces (APIs) to create a watch face and retrieve calendar and notification data.
    Quick Settings Swiping down from the top brings new settings that include Theatre mode (display off), Sunlight mode (temporarily maximize brightness), managing interruptions, and easier access to deeper Settings. Interruptions choices made on your Moto 360 automatically change the Interruptions setting on your Lollipop-based phone.
    User Interface Improvements Easily undo the accidental dismissal of notification cards, and dismiss individual cards within a bundle of multiple notifications.
    Battery & Storage Stats The Android Wear application will now allow you to obtain more information about Moto 360 battery performance including a projection of time left and a breakdown of usage by applications. You can also see how much storage space remains - which is helpful when planning offline music.
    Android™ 5.0, Lollipop Updates Android Wear to the latest platform for consistency across Android devices for both consumers and developers.
    Bug Fixes A variety of system optimizations to improve performance and stability


    INSTRUCTIONS

    This software update will be rolled out in phases to Moto 360 users over the next few days. When you receive the update, you will receive a notification on your watch.
    To successfully install the update, your watch must be connected to a phone which is in turn connected to the internet. Your watch’s battery level must also be greater than 80%.
    If you have received a notification message for this update:

    1. Select "Download".
    2. After the software is downloaded, select "Install now".
    3. After the software is installed, your Moto 360 will restart automatically.
    4. Your watch is now updated with LWX48P
