It’s tough to put into words just how much we love Pebblers all over the world…
“Máme vás rádi!” “Við elskum þig!” “Kochamy cię!”
…but it’s safe to say making Pebble more awesome with each and every update is a great place to start. Today, we’ve got love to share on three fronts: Firmware, Android, and iOS. The Android app update will be a phased roll-out: available today to 10% of Pebblers who visit the Google Play Store, with access expanding over the next couple weeks. Pebblers can also join our Beta Channel for early access to test releases of the Pebble Android app.
Firmware v2.8: Multi-language Notifications
Firmware 2.8 adds full character support for the broadest set of languages to date. For Pebblers who receive notifications in the newly supported languages, special characters like “ß” and “Ż” will appear correctly, as opposed to showing up as “unknown character” boxes. Over 98% of Pebblers in the world can now fully receive messages and alerts in their native language. Today’s update paves the way for more languages to come in the future, as Pebble steadily lands in more countries around the world.
To test out Pebble’s newly-supported characters, try sending yourself the following message after updating to 2.8: ÑÔ møŕě bòxĕš fōř ėïġĥťý ŀæńģūåĝęş!
