Hi I got my new rose gold samsung watch yesterday and cannot seem to get my WhatsApp notifications or messages on it. I cant find any information on it on the internet or if there is a 3rd party to use. Can you help please.

Yessss I've cracked it!! I went into galaxy wearable app on phone, go into settings and scroll down to galaxy apps and there were updates needed to be done, done those and it's worked since. So I now have messenger and WhatsApp notifications, happy, happy birthday girl today as it was driving me nuts 🤯😁 hope it works for you too, let me know 🤞

I have the same issue. I have all notifications for all messages appears on both the phone and the Samsung 42Gold. But like you, I have no way of viewing the message again if I didn't catch it all the second it is notified on my watch? I cannot find an app icon to be able to select to add to my watch apps.

I've been looking thru these Google searches and found a 3rd party (Tizen) that apparently offers the app but I am unsure about installing it.

Under galaxy wearable-notifications, read all the options. Then switch on what needs to switch on. Then under app, select the apps you want to receive notifcation. I can received notif from all apps in my phone. Can reply also.

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

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.

But how do i get whatsapp calls to come through on the Galaxy watch? The only option within the Galaxy wearable app is to turn on WhatsApp notifications. I get my WhatsApp messages just fine. Only WhatsApp calls do not come through to the watch. Only a notification of a missed WhatsApp call. Any advice?

hi. Did you find a solution for the whatsapp calls problem because i have the same problem also and its very annoying. I tried almost everything and it didn't work. Also read many users messages that the samsung watch cannot receive whatsapp calls only messages which means.that their's nothing wrong with our watches. However i still.think.that their could be a way to.solve this

I'm sorry, but I only use it for text messages. Prefer calls via normal calls.

It would appear that there's not a dedicated app for it at the moment, only message notifications. I think WhatsApp will have to amend their app. However this is a reply I got from Samsung help 

Hi, Thanks for your message. WhatsApp Calling allows you make calls through WhatsApp via your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. (Note: data charges may apply). You can place a call in WhatsApp to any contact that isstored in your phone's address bookwho also has WhatsApp Calling. Below you can find the operating system requirements for the WhatsApp Voice Calling and Video Calling: Voice Calling: AndroidiPhone (iOS 7 and later)Windows Phone (OS 8 and later) Video Calling: Android (OS 4.1+)iPhone (iOS 8.0+)Windows Phone (8.1+) In order for these features to be available please make sure that you are using the latest available version for your device by going here. Note: You can’t access 911 and other emergency service numbers through WhatsApp. You must make alternative communication arrangements to make emergency calls. Learn more about using WhatsApp Calling on: Android, iPhone or Windows Phone.


This question, as you can see hasn't been answered so I've sent them another follow up to get some clarification.

Hey! I encountered the same problem with my galaxy watch 42 mm. I bought in December and started using ir with my galaxy s7 and then with a galaxy s9+. From the beginning was able to receive message notifications from WhatsApp on the watch and reply (not starting conversations nor watching pictures/stickers/gifs like other comments mentioned). But, a few days ago the notifications stopped. I did not change any settings nor updated apps prior to this happening. I tried everything, reset the watch, restart the phone, updating every app and double checking the notifications for WhatsApp on the wearable app were turned on but nothing worked.... until, I turned on the "show while using phone" on the notifications settings in the wearable app. Voilà! Back to normal. Hope this helps.

Hi..try the notification apps in your phone..

 

Go to settings (of you phone NOT THE SETTINGS OF THE WEARABLE APP ON YOUR PHONE) and see if the notification for whatsapp is on..

I had the same problem but when i tried everything and failed, i thought the the problem could be in my phone settings for whatsapp..and thats when i saw that the notif for whatsapp od off.

 

Then it worked..
