Samsung galaxy watch and whatsapp pictures

New Member



I have the new samsung galaxy watch and im struggling to find much info on how to do stuff on it! 


What i want to know is, when I receive a whats app message that contains a photo, how do i go about changing my settings so that i can see the photo on my watch? All i see on the watch is who the message is from the word photo and a camera emoji. 


Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

Hi @Johowden87. Some pictures may come through and others may not. I'm not sure on the prerequisites for this but it may be best to contact the app developer directly.

You can see image on galaxy watch when:


-The image is the only new message or the firstone in the WhatsApp chat

-Turn Off Edge lighting notification WhatsApp 


1 - From the Home screen, swipe up or down to access the Apps screen

2 - Touch Settings

3 - Touch Display

4 - Navigate to and touch Edge screen

5 - Touch Edge lighting

6 - Touch Manage notifications

7 - Disable Edge lighting notification slider WhatsApp

Could you post a more detailed instruction or perhaps a video? I can't find any such edge settings on my Galaxy Watch 46mm or OnePlus 3.

Your the best, this solution is totally not logical but works.. Thanks a million..

Could you post in detail how you managed to apply this solution? I'm having a hard time applying this solutions with Samsung Galaxy 46mm and OnePlus 3.


Please post a detailed description of what you did and on which device did you use. Thank you.


Hi I just did the steps as Marcello Sannai wrote them, its the edge screen notification setting that somehow bloks the picture of going through to the watch. I also have the 46 mm galaxy watch but the lte version.

And my phone is Note FE  (NOTE 7)
