If you are a fan of Wear OS, then you might be interested in joining the Wear OS research study. Details about the opportunity were posted on Reddit (via XDA developers) and include a post by a Community Manager for Wear OS, known only as Alisha.

The signup process, including the survey, takes around 20 to 25 minutes according to a few commenters on the original Reddit post. Some even commented that they only finished the extensive questioning to see it through to the end. It asks a series of questions at the beginning; including location, ZIP code and age group, but then delves into telephone and technology usage — all with a Google focus.

Whilst this isn’t something particularly new, Wear OS’ market share still isn’t exactly solid. A series of updates and improvements are slowly making the platform a much more attractive prospect, with this survey likely being used to shape future updates.

What am I signing up for?

By signing up, you’ll receive opportunities to participate in Google user studies. For example, we might have you try a prototype and provide feedback, or interview you about a new product.

We are actively seeking more people to join us for onsite studies in our Bay Area offices.

What do I get?

You will help focus our products on our users. While you don’t get anything for just signing up, we usually give participants a token of appreciation for taking part in a study.

Your feedback matters – help us shape the future of our products!
