Android RuntimePermissionsWear Sample

A sample that shows how you can handle remote data that requires permissions both on a wearable device and a mobile device.


Steps for trying out this sample:

  • Compile and install the mobile app onto your mobile device or emulator.
  • Compile and install the wearable app onto your Wear device or emulator. (Note: wearable apps are not automatically pushed from your mobile device unless you build a production release, see here for more info).
  • Start the mobile or wear app. Each app contains two buttons: one for showing local data and another for showing remote data.
  • Click either button to view the data. Both local and remote data require dangerous permissions to be approved before displaying the data for devices running 23 or above. You will be asked to approve the access if you do not have the proper permissions.
  • The happy icon signifies you have access to the data while the sad icon signifies you do or may not have access (and may be asked to approve access).

This sample demonstrates how to access data and trigger permission approval on remote devices. It uses Services and the Wearable MessageApi to communicate between devices.
