Galaxy watch & whatsapp

start your wearable app, make sure that the watch is connected, open Notifications, read very clearly the first 3 options and set up accordingly.

i dont have the app in front of me so i have to paraphrase on the first 3 questions...

1. notify  only when wearing the watch... when this is on... you will not get any notifications as long as you hold your watch in your hand or its on the table in front of you... remember its a smart watch... it knows if you wear it!!! i suggest you turn this off.

2. notify when the phone is on, here is suggest that you turn it off. when you chat with someone you dont want to have constantly the watch notifcations since you already hold the phone in your hand.

3. atomatically turn on notifications for all newly installed apps..., i suggest you also turn that on, since when you dont want notificaitons from a particular app, you can anytime turn them off in the background.

 

hope that helps.

Works only for messages. When getting a voice call on Whatssap the Watch does nothing. Why?

See Page 13 of this thread (10/7/2019), doesn't seem like anything has changed unfortunately.

I know I'm late to this thread but I figured it out : 

Go to Galaxy wearable

Notification

Recently sent  and then see all 

On top you will see ," most recent", click on that and you choose " all" . Abd then individually click on apps you want

Hi all, go to samsung wearable app > notifications > show while using phone. This will push your whatsapp notifications to your watch.

 

It worked for me on the new LTE watch
