  • Developer Behind Android Wear/iPhone Compatibility Hacking Extends Functionality to Music


    About a week ago, an application developer by the name of Mohammad Abu-Garbeyyeh managed to hack Android Wear to accept phone calls from the iPhone using Apple's own iOS 8 API; an ANCS connection linking the two devices. The communication between the devices does not require a jailbreak in any of the demonstrations.

    The same developer has just uploaded a new video to YouTube over the weekend that demonstrates using Apple's Music application in conjunction with Google's Android Wear. The hack allows the Android Wear user to control the iPhone's music volume, pause & play controls, and more, as the developer demonstrates in the video below:



    This is the same functionality that users of Apple's Watch can expect when they are able to get their hands on the Apple wearable starting April 24th. In fact, the hack uses the same API that Apple's Watch uses to connect to the iPhone and control it.

    Abu-Garbeyyeh has also demonstrated making the notification systems compatible between the two devices and we expect he will probably continue tinkering with the devices to see what else can be achieved for his personal pleasure. We'll continue to show you any other achievements that he manages to come up with as they appear on his YouTube channel, so stay tuned!
