Wear OS users are being met with the following message when opening up the Nest app on their smartwatches — “Nest is no longer supported for Wear OS.”

Womp womp.

Reported by 9to5 Google, who received the following comment from Google, it just seems that no one was using the app in the first place.

We took a look at Nest app users on smart watches and found that only a small number of people were using it. Moving forward our team will spend more time focusing on delivering high quality experiences through mobile apps and voice interactions.

You will still get notifications on your watch with Nest app via your mobile device. Wear OS users can control their thermostat with the Google Assistant from any Wear OS device, check out more details here. If you’re using an Apple watch you’ll no longer be able to adjust your thermostat or change Home/Away mode from your watch. However, the actions you were able to take on your watch are all available with the Nest app (available for both Android and iOS), so you’ll still be able to control your devices on the go.

We’d be upset, but yeah, apparently no one used this.
