send and receive WhatsApp messages on your Apple Watch. To offer the widest
range of features and up-to-date technology the app has been updated more than
60 times in the past 3 years and we will continue to do...
Excellent but there’s room for improvements
This is an excellent app but it can be better. The developer has done a terrific job considering WhatsApp hasn’t put this out for us using Apple Watch and is improving it quickly. Notifications are done through Apple Watch notifications and WhatsApp. Sure you can respond to a message this way but you can’t see an entire chat or prior message once you’ve responded. Using this app you can see a chat with pictures and recordings. You can see all of your chats and choose which to respond to. You can’t do that without this app. It is definitely worth the $3 and I’m sure it will get better. Give the developer time and suggestions. Refresh can be faster. Can notifications be better? how about when receiving a notification, having a button that takes you directly to the chat? Right now if I get a notification and I want to read the thread I have to get out of notifications and open watch chat to see the conversation and respond. Thanks.
Here are things you can and cannot do with this app on your watch: you will get all notification perfectly, you can open all the conversations you have, open a voice message, type a message (only in English unfortunately), record a voice message to become a typed message (also in English only), replay with any emoji you want, open and zoom a picture, send a quick reply (you can set your own), send a scribble. You cannot: make a voice call (but you will get a notification after someone call you), type or record a message other than English (very sadly). For me, this app deserves a 5 star for having these amazing features, but i still really wish if i can make a voice call or at least type or record a message in my language (Arabic). I hope Arabic language will be add soon by the developer. I hope you guys find this review helpful!
Great app! ... When it works
You get most of the basic stuff from whatsapp like replying, voice messages, photos, see your recent conversations and search contacts. Overall I think it's a great app... When it works. Most of the time the app freezes and you can't see new messages also if you try to send a message it might look like it was sent but once you get into your phone you'll notice the message is not even there. You'll need to close the app, unlock your phone, sometimes even reinstall it just to make it work for a few hours before it freezes again. The app is great and I know the OS has many limitations also since this is a third party app it makes it a lot more difficult to implement all of the features available from whatsapp and make sure they work but still it needs to improve a lot, I rather have a couple of basic features cause at the end of the day the apple watch is not meant to replace your iPhone but at least have those couple features work like they should be.
A fine and functional App
It was irritating to learn that the WhatsApp app folks have not yet modified their App to be fully compatible with the new Apple Watch I just purchased. Getting WhatsApp notifications on my watch is and was something I want and need. Fortunately I discovered WatchChat 2. It pretty much does everything I need and want it to - and it works well. A huge plis is being able to get thoughtful and quick feedback from the developer. I had a few questions regarding installation, use of, and access to the WatchChat app - and the developer answered them quickly, thoughtfully and articulately. Bottom line - not only is this a functional and incredibly useful app - but customer and technical service and help directly from the developer make it a great one, in my opinion. I don’t normally take the time to write detailed reviews - but the quality and usefulness of this app - combined with the intellogent and helpful customer support from the developer - mean a lot to me. I’m seriously recommending it.
Not worth the money
I just bought the app and honestly would have asked for a refund if I could. The app takes for ever to load voice messages and when they start playing they suddenly stop. Also I can't lower my wrist as the minute the apple watch screen turns off the voice message stops playing. Basically the voice message feature is broken in this application which is one of the main reason to purchase the application. Also application constantly freezez and I have to relaunch it to get it to work. Finally the UI is extremely unpolished for an app that costs $3. It has potential but needs lots of improvement. Also doesn't ring when you get calls. Can't leave voice messages. Finally it didn't support gifs. Deffinetely not worth the price.
After I learned there wasn’t a physical WhatsApp app for the Apple Watch I decided to purchase this one and try it out. In the beginning I was having trouble with setting it all up. I waited the 40-60 mark and nothing happened. The “retry” option wasn’t working either so I contacted support. They got back to me that same day with the solution to reset both my phone and the watch and pair them again. The app is now fully functioning and is great! I would recommend this app. Hopefully the app will be updated with improvements further in the future.
It works for me, for now! *first time Apple Watch buyer*
It has worked for me at the moment, but my only complaint is that I cannot receive the notifications directly from the app for when the message arrived, reply to you through the app and not through the notification provided by the Apple Watch. Also, not being able to edit the conversations (delete, archive) directly from the watch without having to use the iPhone; not being able to see the status of WhatsApp; and the one that every time you enter the app you have to wait seconds per connection and it doesn’t do it instantly.
Works for viewing and replying, could be better
The app is ok. It needs works. What I like; You can start conversation, reply & send audio. What I don’t like it is the audio playback and audio recording turns off due to Apple Watch screen going to sleep to save battery, you have to keep turning crown to keep it on it put your watch to never sleep. I use WhatsApp a lot with family members. If they used something else to send and receive messages I’d go with a different messaging system. This is a great concept but definitely needs work. Not worth the $3 more like $1 app.
Not worth it.. and not needed.
I purchased this app last night thinking that it would improve the way I communicate on WhatsApp through my watch. But it doesn’t even send WhatsApp notifications to your watch. You have to open the app on your watch, refresh it, wait a few seconds, and then you can see the conversation. I guess that’s the only purpose of this app - to see the full conversation of a chat - and I’m not sure why you would need to do that. It’s much easier to just use the WhatsApp notifications that you already get on your watch from WhatsApp and respond that way. This app doesn’t allow you to do that because there are no notifications. Therefore, this app is pretty much useless and certainly not needed.
Initially I had a bit a trouble getting the app installed to my watch, but the developer was VERY responsive when I wrote about my problem. Within a few minutes I was online and everything works great. I think my problem might have been a weak WiFi signal but at any rate, the app ranks high up on my list because the developer shows commitment to his product. So nice to have all your conversations on the watch and be able to respond right from the watch. Hats off to this app.
Have used the app for about a month and a half. So far I have enjoyed being able to reply through the watch, and also being able to create your own quick messages. However, from my experience you have to refresh the app on the watch and have WhatsApp open on your phone so the message goes through. Also recently I have contacted the developer and he is very good in replying about any problem or inquiry. I appreciate that.
Good job. Keep it up
I was having trouble scanning the QR but he was intouch and helping out till i got it to work. I love it! It was worth the $3! I wish the list of my msj could refresh faster and when i get a notification to just be able to click and open the convo instead of having to close and open the app. I enjoy listening to the recording now on my iwatch and being able to see pics instead of having to get my phone out to do that.
Not able to use cellular
I like all the features except that I have not been able to use it with cellular. If I am not close to my phone, I cannot use it. I downloaded to be connected with my students during trips, but it has only been working with my phone close to it. If someone can let me know how I can use it with cellular or if that feature can be added, the app would be great.
Top notch customer service
I recently switched to an Apple Watch Series 5 (before Fitbit Versa) and I really missed seeing my WhatsApp messages. I watched some YouTubers and they recommend this app. After having some installing issues, I contacted the customer service and let me tell you, best customer service I’ve received in a long time. Alexander guided me step by step and it’s working now and I’m thrilled to see all my WhatsApp messages on my watch!
So far, works w/ Apple Watch 4, iOS 13.1
I tried some of the other free alternatives and couldn’t get them to work. I’m surprised such a popular messenger service doesn’t offer a native client for the Apple Watch. Having said that, I haven’t noticed any recent reviews and, if you’re like me, wanted something recent that gave a little more indication of what’s working. I set it up in a matter of seconds, much like the other alternatives, which reaffirmed the other ones didn’t work. This one populated the messages and I’m able to scroll through. I wish there were ways to better show the different groups (IE bold/different font), but guessing Apple causes some limitation, perhaps. I use WhatsApp a lot, and for me, just having something display the messages I see on a group chat is worth it. I’ll update the review once I use it more.
