WhatsApp for Apple Watch?

watchOS & Apple Watch Apps

Hi all,
Is there a WhatsApp for the Apple Watch? I found one on the App Store, but was wondering if it's accessible? thanks.

There is a nice app called WatchChat. It has almost all the needed features like WhatsApp on the iPhone.
The only tricky thing is to pair WhatsApp with this app on the watch. You have to use the QR-Code function of WhatsApp web for pairing.
Maybe you should get sighted help to get it done quickly and with no headaches.
Voice messages can be played from the watch but they take some time to load from the phone to the watch.

Hi. Thanks for this. Really useful. I think with the amount of groups and chatter that goes on on my WhatsApp, it would kil my battery.

Hi all. So, after reading this forum thread, I downloaded this app and got it all paired up with no problems. I haven’t really played with it much, except that I don’t appear to be getting notifications when I get any sort of messages at all. Am I doing something wrong? I might regret asking how to get notifications, but if I’m supposed to, then I’m not :-) I took a look in the notifications portion of my watch app and the app isn’t even in there at all. The only thing I see is WhatsApp, and that is currently set to off, but thinking about it, maybe I need to switch this on. I will give this ago and see what happens.

I don't either actually. I don't believe it is a true app. I want to listen to messages or read them etc.

Take care
