Every year users ask whether there is WhatsApp on Huawei Watch to communicate with their friends via smartwatch. Well, the answer is basically no every year, and still, the answer is the same. Facebook developers are not seeing that much value in the Huawei Watch GT 2 Pro or Watch GT 2, so they could work on it. Actually, years ago the Instagram app was launched on Huawei Watch 2 & 2 Pro that runs on Wear OS, but later the company removed it by receiving poor experience & the need for heavy storage space to install the app. It was the only social media app that launched on smartwatches, on the WatchOS as well as on Tizen & Wear OS wearables.
The same goes for WhatsApp, it takes much more storage to install. Now Huawei Watch GT 2, GT 2e & GT 2 Pro comes with minimal storage space and all runs on Huawei’s LiteOS software. Even it doesn’t include WhatsApp on the watch, there is still a way to use WhatsApp on Huawei Watches. You may not get all that you want, but with it, you can interact with your friends & family, right from the wrist. Here is a way to use WhatsApp on Huawei Watch GT 2, GT 2e & GT 2 Pro smartwatches.
