► Free version: you can add a peek card even if you already have a complication bubble (but not the other way around)
► Intro slider on Oreo+ watches → start video on how to remove permanent “Displaying over other apps” notification
► Improved layout of intro slider (on watch)
► Permission screen also updated on watch to show Oreo Overlay information on top and also link to the new youtube video

Quick Swipe Panel

Swipe in opposite direction from the app drawer to set volume and start Google Assistant or any other app! → Watch video below

Enable the Quick Swipe Panel in the Settings (in watch face mode only)


Tap the little icon on the top to choose between:
► Media Volume (e.g. voice of the Assistant, or the “tick” sound for clock)
► Alarm Volume
► Ring / Notification volume

v9.29 update: Long press volume icon to mute watch


Enable the option “Quick Swipe Panel” on the watch or phone (under Watch Face settings) By default the Google Assistant is opened when you swipe to the far right (if the app drawer is on the left) You can assign any other function to the quick swipe:
► Any app
► Folder
► Tasker task
► SmartHome bubble
► Phone app
Just long press any bubble and look for the command “Assign to Quick Swipe” below. You can restore the Google Assistant using the “Quick Swipe Panel” command in the main Settings on the watch.


Wearable Widgets is an ingenious app by StringMon/Udell which lets you use your phone’s home screen widgets on your watch. It  can provide a workaround for missing Wear OS components of many popular apps.

Assigning Wearable widgets to the Quick Swipe Panel on the right side of the Bubble Cloud watch face gives you a very natural interface, where you will have:

  • the app drawer and the brightness control on the left side
  • and your phone-widgets and the volume control on the right side of the watch face

This is shows how to set it up: youtube


In the newest video I included detailed instructions on the removal of the message “Displaying over other apps” (3:37) I decided to show this part of the video on the phone as part of the onboarding experience on watches with Oreo and later:
► Added a new page into the intro slider
► Added a link to the light blue Permission request screen on the watch


I received an email from a novice user, who was not able to set theme backgrounds using the phone app. After several rounds, I finally realized she picked the background, but then did not select any of the components to Apply (which resulted in nothing being applied). I now added a prompt whether the user intends to apply all.
