Meta’s WhatsApp has announced the expansion of its services to Wear OS smart watches, giving customers quick access from their wrists. A new integration was first launched in the WhatsApp beta version and is now accessible to all users. Users may respond swiftly to messages without using their cell phones thanks to this integration’s support for a number of crucial features. There hasn’t been any official word from the messaging service, which is owned by Meta, regarding the prospective launch of WhatsApp for watchOS, Apple’s wearable operating system.
Announcement on Wear OS Smart Watches from Meta CEO
According to the publication’s claim, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg made the eagerly awaited Wear OS announcement on Wednesday. Your Android smartwatch must have Wear OS 3 in order to be able to access WhatsApp. Users are now able to start new chats with others and reply with text, emoji, or audio messages thanks to this integration.
WhatsApp users on watchOS have to resort to third-party apps
There hasn’t been any official word from WhatsApp on the anticipated release of a watchOS app, which would give Apple Watch users access to the well-known messaging service. In May, Meta had already stopped providing support for its Messenger watchOS app. Currently, watchOS WhatsApp users must utilise third-party apps, which may cause privacy and security problems.
According to the source, you can quickly link your smartwatch to your smartphone’s WhatsApp account after downloading WhatsApp for Wear OS version 184.108.40.206 onto your smartwatch.
The app will then sync your recent conversations from your phone to your wearable device. The Wear OS version of WhatsApp uses end-to-end encryption to maintain the security of chats, voice messages, and other content, much like the Android and iOS versions do. This makes sure that only the sender and intended receiver can access the contents of the communications.
