WhatsApp has been around for a very long time and has done absolutely well. In fact, the App has had more than 2 billion downloads since its release in 2013. There are over 100 billion messages exchanged on WhatsApp daily. So why haven’t Meta, (formerly FaceBook) created a full-featured app for support on the Apple Watch? The answer might be in the stats because it’s done so well, why would they need to have an app dedicated to the Apple Watch?
WhatsApp does support the minimal feature on the Apple Watch. You can read messages and do a quick reply, that’s it. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to do way more, such as accessing photos and videos in full HD resolution, accessing all chats, listening to voice messages, starting new chats, and much more? Well, now you can use all the features of WhatsApp on your Apple Watch with the app WatchsApp for WhatsApp.
I have been using WatchsApp for WhatsApp for a short period of time but it has been way more useful. There is so much more the app allows you to do than the standard WhatsApp.
