    Super excited. Have been asking for this for years.
    Believe SwiftUI is amazing because it come form the iWatch team, so it had to be declarative for all platforms from the beginning.  Looking forward to Compose working across all Google platforms. Phone/Chrome/Watch/TV/ etc ... without any code changes like SwiftUI (for the most part) 😀

    "for the most part" -> https://app.slack.com/client/T09229ZC6/CRF31N2HW The UI components are tailored to Wear as Jeremy mentions above.

    Not very happy with Compose WearOS compared to SwiftUI. How do others feel?

    It's a work in progress. Alpha, so APIs will still change and new components released. I've found it great to use. What would you improve?
    @Ash want to dig into this, what makes SwiftUI so nice for you? Dev tools, components, kotlin vs Swift?

    For SwiftUI they started with different devices plus the phone. With Compose it feels like other devices are an afterthought. Going to write an article on medium compare iWatch to Wear dev. Will provide a link when done.
    Full disclosure, worked for Apple in college but also have a good relationship with the Android team.
    Working on this ... hope to have something by next Friday ... will post link when done 😃
