WhatsApp Now Available on Wear OS for Beta Testers

    According to, WhatsApp has launched an official Wear OS app, allowing beta testers who use its Android app to send voice and text messages directly from their wrist. The beta Android app’s version introduced the functionality. It also contains hints about the possibility that Android users will soon be able to edit messages. Wear OS is said to support smartwatches such as the Pixel Watch, Galaxy Watch 5 and 9to5Google.

    Android Police notes the Meta-owned messaging app previously offered a Android Wear smartwatch application prior to its Wear OS brand rebranding, but that it was ultimately discontinued due to lack of adoption. Wear OS users can only send and receive WhatsApp messages through their smartwatch notifications.

    Sending messages quickly has never been easier.

    Wear OS allows users to browse through recent conversations, scroll back in message history, and respond using voice or text. The Wear OS app has a few tiles, including one that allows you to view your contacts and another for voice messages. There is also a complication that shows the number of unread WhatsApp messages. Android Police points out that while you can send a message to an existing conversation, you cannot start a brand new chat if you have never sent a WhatsApp message to a contact before.

    The Wear OS app is set up by entering an 8-digit code on the watch directly into WhatsApp. WABetaInfo points out, that WhatsApp multi-device compatibility means that messages sent via a smartwatch are still protected using end-to-end encrypted messaging.

    The Android version also gives hints about the possibility that WhatsApp will soon allow users to edit messages . This would enable them to correct any typos and other mistakes. WABetaInfo notes similar hints that have appeared in iOS application and that this feature is available to a small number of beta testers. According to the web app, you can edit messages for about 15 minutes after sending them.
