Google always keeps users of its Wear OS smartwatches updated with the latest features and functions Just as the company replaced the Google Pay app for smartphones with Google Wallet, it did the same for smartwatches running Wear OS. However, Wear OS device owners are facing the issue of the Google Wallet double-click shortcut not working, fortunately, it has been fixed now.
Undoubtedly, the change brought a lot of functionality to the devices but also took the double-click shortcut problem.
