Meta has now released a standalone app for its messaging service on WearOS, Google’s operating system for smartwatches.
With WhatsApp on WearOS, it is possible to read messages from Meta’s messaging service and record voice messages that can be sent through the service. To use the watch version of WhatsApp on WearOS, users need WearOS 3, the latest version of the operating system available on devices such as Google’s own Pixel Watch, Galaxy Watch 4/5, and some other models.
This is the first version of WhatsApp released by Meta for smartwatches. The service is currently not available on Apple’s smartwatch, the Apple Watch.
