After beta testing support for Android Wear since December, Pebble has now officially launched the feature for its line of smartwatches.

The update allows Android Wear-compatible apps to send notifications to and receive responses from Pebble watches. Here are a couple of demos showing how users can reply to Hangouts messages and approve money transfer requests from Square Cash.

In addition, Pebble lets users send custom preset replies to app notifications — a feature that Android Wear devices don’t support natively.
