In our last article, I explained how you can use WhatsApp Messenger on your Galaxy Watch 4 & Galaxy Watch 5 series smartwatches. One by one I have shown you how you can get WhatsApp messages, view them, and see inside images, stickers, and emojis. Further, I also covered how you can use different input methods to reply to incoming messages. There is one area that was missing on these smartwatches, and that is WhatsApp calling support. These watches support everything but not the WhatsApp calling function.
But not anymore. In the latest WhatsApp app 22.214.171.124 update, the Galaxy Watch 4 & Galaxy Watch 5 watch support video calling. What does that mean? It means you can now receive, answer or reject WhatsApp calls from your smartwatch.
Before the update, the users were unable to get WhatsApp calling on the Galaxy Watches. And now with the new WhatsApp update, you can get alerts and also answer calls.
So how can you get WhatsApp calls on your Galaxy Watch, I will explain here.
To get the WhatsApp calls on your smartwatch, first, you have to download the latest 126.96.36.199 or above WhatsApp Messenger app version. The update is rolling out slowly so you should wait for your turn.
Once you update the app, then open WhatsApp and choose the number to whom you want to call.
Now tap on the calling icon, and it will start ringing. If you are receiving the calls, then you can see the WhatsApp number below the WhatsApp logo on your watch. The WhatsApp logo will differentiate normal calls from WhatsApp calls.
Some users say they see the WhatsApp logo, and some say they see the logo. But the main thing is now you can receive and answer WhatsApp calls.
Finally, the most important thing, is you should keep your internet on your smartphone.
