How to have WhatsApp on the Apple Watch

The wait to be able to use WhatsApp on the Apple Watch seems to have no end. You don't even remember when Telegram launched its application for Apple Watch, and However, the most important instant messaging application in the world resists having a version that can be used on the Apple watch.

However, all waiting has an end, and even if it is unofficially, we already have a solution to be able to use WhatsApp on the Apple Watch. We have tested WhatchUp, an application that will allow you to read messages, view photos and send WhatsApp messages from your Apple Watch. In this video we show you how to configure and use this application.

It is a paid application, but surely for many it compensates in exchange for being able to use WhatsApp on the Apple Watch. It has no trick or deception, what it does is install a WhatsApp Web on your watch, having to scan a QR code and everything to make it work. The configuration is not complicated following the instructions indicated by the application and the clock, just as we show in the video.

Once configured, its use is quite intuitive. You will be able to access all the conversations you have on WhatsApp, although if some contain many messages, they may not be shown in full. It really is not a drawback, since I doubt that anyone is going to dedicate themselves to navigating the messages on the Apple Watch. The application does its job perfectly: you can view messages, including images, and you can send messages by voice typing, handwriting, or emojis. By the way, if you have problems with the language, from the application they tell you how to change it to the one you want. While we wait for the official app to arrive on the Apple Watch, this is a good solution.

    You say that the application is taking time to get to the watch but you forget that it does not even have an App for ipad or PC. Undoubtedly whatsapp is used by its user base not for its quality, for that it is already telegram.

      It costs work but he reads it by moving it away a little more than the account

    I see that there is another alternative called whatschat, I don't know if someone has tried the two options which one will work better, I have watchup for now and to go for the second version it is not bad

    I have installed it, but it has many problems, it disconnects and the chats on the watch are not updated (Apple Watch 3), to connect sometimes it goes sometimes not, so I have returned it and requested the return to apple. And they have already made me the return, thank goodness !!!

    Do you have the option to send audios directly? I do not want dictation, and if you can also listen to audios from the watch, have anyone already tried that? Thanks!

      How did you do to request a refund? what reasons did you give?

    2.    Luis Padilla said

      Can not do that

        You go in to hache you get that colon bar bar reportaproblem dot apple dot com (I say it like this because I suppose that real links are prohibited, even though being an official one it should not be)
        After you log in, you look for the app you want to return and open a drop-down that says several options, you choose the one that says you want to return the app and that's it. (you have 14 days to return)

    It's crap. It does not work. It disconnects all the time, it does not synchronize ... a garbage

    It does not work, do not buy it, it does not install on all Apple Watch, therefore it does not link. Incomplete information

      Correction and extensive comment: After snooping, I used the simple method I rebooted the iPhone and there it is installed and appears on the Apple Watch.

    I have tried watchup and watchchat and I can say that the last one works better and the developer constantly updates it with improvements
