I am having troubles responding to notifications on my new Galaxy watch 3. (Connected with Bluetooth)
I am using a Nokia 9 Android phone. As far as I know notifications/responses/messages should work with this?
First; there is no 'Messages' app on my watch. Which I thought it should be there. But, when I go to contacts, select a contact, I have the option to send a message. There everything works; I can type, say something, use an emoji, .... When I click send, the message is being send and delivered. So far so good (except I don't understand why I don't have a Messages app, and also can't find the Samsung messages app in the store when I search with my phone).
Notifications from WhatsApp and Messenger are also coming through (so I think everything about notifications is set correctly in the Gear app), but I can't reply. In attached screenshots you can see that I am able to select something (for example the 'What?', but when I click that 'send' button, nothing happens.
Also, when clicking on the 'microphone, 'emoji' or 'type text' buttons (see other screenshot) nothing happens. It doesn't
go to the next screen. I have no idea what could be the issue here.
I have found some posts with (possibly) similar issues but haven't found a real solution or a clear explanation on how/why it does not work and if it should work (and how )
Samsung remove the messaging app if the watch isn't paired to a Samsung phone. This isn't unique to the Galaxy Watch 3, they did it with the original Galaxy Watch too!
Thanks for the reply.
I can live with the fact that the messages App is not available. It's still possible to send an sms when you select a contact on the watch first.
What isn't right is that replying to a notification (SMS, WhatsApp, ... isn't possible). Afaik it should be possible cause it's possible to send a new sms.
Anyone found a solution? I have the same problem with nokia 8.1
Hi, I have the same issue, Nokia 7.2 with Android 10 and Galaxy Watch Active2. Any solutions yet?
At least presets repliing should be there as I will call you latter etc. Very big Bug. Hopefuly will be fixed soon.
same problem here (Nokia 7.2, Android 10, Galaxy Watch 3). Have you any updates on this topic? Otherwise I have to send back the Watch (besides this quick answer feature, it outperforms my previous Wear OS watch in every topic :()
Haven't heard from Samsung.
I would create a support case if I was you. Maybe when we make enough noise they will at least think about doing something
I have a nokia 8 sirocco and the same problem. has someone found a solution yet?
