One of the most widely used messaging platforms, WhatsApp, is now officially available for Wear OS. WhatsApp for Wear OS was teased at the Google I/O event this year, and later a WhatsApp beta was introduced for Wear OS. Now, after some wait the official stable build of WhatsApp for Wear OS 3 watches has finally been made available.
When the WhatsApp beta for Wear OS was introduced, we tried it on a Galaxy Watch, but it wasn’t working properly. However, with the stable build now available, you can expect it to work as expected.
As you know, the Samsung Unpacked event is just a week away, where Samsung will unveil its new Galaxy Watch series along with other products. The official WhatsApp release aligns perfectly with the timing of the event.
When it comes to WhatsApp for Wear OS, you get a variety of features. You can initiate new conversations, reply to messages with text, quickly respond to messages, send voice messages, use emojis, and even take WhatsApp calls directly from your watch. These are the features available with the first stable release, and we can anticipate even more features with future updates.
To get WhatsApp for Wear OS, your watch must be running on Wear OS 3 or a newer version. What do you think? Is this a coincidence that WhatsApp for Wear OS is officially available just before the new Galaxy Watch launch, or is it not a coincidence?
