Succeeding a few months in beta, WhatsApp has released its very first formal WearOS app. From this, it turns out that now all the users with their Android smartwatch will be able to download WhatsApp. And without the help of a phone, users can talk on WhatsApp with their friends from their smartwatches. Here you can easily download WhatsApp for Galaxy Watches.

In May, WhatsApp for Wear OS was officially announced at Google I/O, but at the moment, Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Meta, has revealed that WhatsApp for Wear OS is now rolling out across the world. But the fact is, the app is only available if the user’s Watch runs WearOS 3 or higher and offers the users facility of text messages, voice chats, voice calls, and emojis same as the users can on WhatsApp on the Smartphone app.

Users can maintain a seamless connection and enjoy convenient access to chats right from their wrists with the Galaxy Watch 4, Galaxy Watch 5, and various other WearOS smartwatches. The WhatsApp Wear OS application provides a user-friendly interface, displaying a concise list of recent contacts, along with access to the Settings menu and the convenient ‘Open On Phone’ option.

There is also the option to send voice messages, emojis, and quick replies; WearOS devices hold up LTE connectivity with them; this allows users to use WhatsApp even when their smartphone is not in range or with them. For instance, if the user forgets his phone at home in a hurry, then he can use WhatsApp on his Watch without the phone.

You can download WhatsApp for WearOS: from the Google Play Store.

The interesting fact is that native WhatsApp is not yet available on Apple Watch. Here’s Wear OS goes further than Apple Watch. For Android, not all Smartwatches are powered by Wear OS, but still, there are various options if users want WhatsApp on their wrist; the best example is Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and also Galaxy Watch 5.

Samsung to Re-Release Galaxy Watch 4 in 2024, Not Launching FE Version

Published

on


Samsung Galaxy Watch FE was a folk story since Samsung is gearing up to introduce a rebranded version of the 2021 Galaxy Watch. 

A few days ago, it was reported that the Korean giants were working on bringing a new Galaxy Watch under Fan Edition branding, but that report is a false rumor. Recent reports are saying that Samsung is working on expanding its wearable area by delivering a rebranded version of the Galaxy Watch 4, initially launched back in 2021, instead of any new FE variant. 

The rebranded variant of the Galaxy Watch 4 (2024) is in line, and this is being speculated by a post by a reliable tipster (Max Jambor) on X, who stated that “Galaxy Watch 4 (2024)” By this statement, it’s pretty clear that the FE variant for the Galaxy Watch is not in existence yet. 

However, previous reports have already reported that Samsung could release a new variant of the Galaxy Watch 4 in 2024. Somehow, this is not new for the Korean giants, as recently they introduced a new variant, the Tab S6 Lite (2024), which is the third version of the original Tab S6 Lite 2020. Plus, these upgraded variants often have the same specifications as the previous variants, which means that if the recent reports come true, the new variant Galaxy Watch 4 (2024) could share many features with the 2021 Galaxy Watch 4. 

The original variant, the Galaxy Watch 4, features up to 44mm sizes, a circular Super AMOLED display, and advanced health tracking capabilities such as body composition measurement and sleep tracking. It is powered by the in-house Exynos W920 SoC and runs on Wear OS 3. 

However, Samsung has not officially revealed anything regarding the forthcoming Galaxy Watch 4 (2024) variant yet, but it will be interesting to see what new features and functions it will bring.
