Hello, is the AlertDialog usable in Compose Wear? If not, what would be an alternative component to use for similar interactions?
For example, a screen that can take up the whole space, show some description text, a confirm button, dismiss button, and even better, can be swipe to dismissed

These are in-progress, and will be in the wear compose-material library here:[…]rc/commonMain/kotlin/androidx/wear/compose/material/Dialog.kt They haven’t been released as part of an alpha yet, but if you’re feeling adventurous, you can try them out with a snapshot build which uses the latest tip-of-tree code:

There are two styles of dialog in this release - AlertDialog which is along the lines that Andrew described above, supports icon/title/message and either positive/negative Buttons or a stack of Chips. AlertDialog is also swipe dismissable. ConfirmationDialog is for simple acknowledgements - shows icon + title and self-dismisses after a timeout.
