Samsung Galaxy Gear update brings full support for notifications

The Samsung Galaxy Gear got treated to a major update which addressed one of its biggest shortcomings – its lack of proper support for notifications. The latest firmware for the gadget allows users to receive all types of notifications on their device.

Once applied, the update for the Samsung Galaxy Gear allows users to select the apps which send notifications to the smartwatch. Preview of emails and messages is also available, thus massively improving the functionality of the device.

Before the firmware update, an unofficial app solved the Galaxy Gear’s notification woes. It was far from perfect though, so Samsung’s solution to the problem is certainly a welcome sight.
