Google said back in February that Android Wear support would be coming to Ingress sometime “soon” (with some assuming March), but it looks like the app missed that launch date by, well, a lot. As of today, version 1.81.0 of Ingress is starting to roll out on the Play Store, and with it comes Android Wear support as well as the usual bug fixes…

Opening the watch app will let you see all of the portals within your vicinity, and you can swipe between them on your watch if there’s more than one that’s nearby. If you walk up to a portal in real life, you can hack from the watch as well. Finally, it looks like the app will show you whether or not you have a key for the current portal.

You can get the latest version of Ingress on APKMirror, and it should be rolling out on the Play Store right now.
