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.

Go into the 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. I now have messenger, snapchat, SMS and WhatsApp notifications 😁 hope it works for you too, let me know. Then go into notifications and where you have 2 icons for Facebook, snapchat etc, only select notifications to be in the watch. Or else you will have double notifications on your mobile

I was having the same issues. Go to your phone settings. Go to all apps and turn on whatsapp.

but when i swith on the setting "Show while phone is in use" (or something like that) all notifications work.

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..
