WhatsApp Now Available on Your Android Smartwatch

I’m going to guess that if you have a smartphone, then you probably have WhatsApp. If you aren’t familiar with WhatsApp, it is “a cross-platform mobile messaging app which allows you to exchange messages without having to pay for SMS.”

WhatsApp has about 500 million users, and it is not hard to see why. After all, who doesn’t want to not pay for SMS charges? It is available for the iPhone, BlackBerry, Android, Windows phone, Nokia, and now the smartwatch.

There isn’t a lot of hype on WhatsApp’s website about the smartwatch features. This is because it is a beta update, but it has an official support for Android Wear.

It means that WhatsApp users can do more than just view and clear notifications. They can also use stacked notifications, see a complete preview of received messages, and they can also reply with messages with just their voice.

That last feature might get more than one person’s attention as the user must literally talk to their wrist. I highly recommend using that one instead of a Bluetooth headset for the real smartwatch users.

If you want it, you can go here to download it and install it on your Android device.
