Two Wear OS 3 apps listed as Essential by Google are not available on the platform
The other apps on the page are good to go and can be downloaded on your Wear OS 3 watch. Whether you consider them essential is up to you. Some Reddit users who were chiming in on the screenshot had good things to say about Telegram with one calling it the best messaging app.
The definition of “essential” is something that is necessary and extremely important. The real issue here is how could Google consider an app to be essential for Wear OS 3 users if it isn’t even available on the platform.
