LG has just released a new app to the Google Play Store that allows you to place calls on your phone from your watch. But unless you own an LG Watch Urbane, you won’t be able to use it. So far, the app is sitting at a measly 1.5/5 star rating on Google Play, and for good reason. Unfortunately, LG doesn’t make very clear the app’s exclusivity to the Watch Urbane in the app description, and that’s certainly upsetting a ton of G Watch and G Watch R owners.

However, if you do happen to own a brand new Watch Urbane, you now have the option to initiate phone calls from your wrist. With the LG Call app, you’ll be able to scroll through your recent calls, favorite contacts, and take advantage of the interesting rotary phone UI LG has selected for this app.

It’s possible that LG is limiting the number of supported devices because the app is still in the testing process. But in any case, we’ll have to wait and see if the company decides to expand compatibility to more devices. If you’re interested, head to the Google Play link below.
