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.

If you have WhatsApp Web enabled on your PC (web.whatsapp.com), you won't receive notifications on your watch.  Close any WhatsApp Web browser tabs that are open and you'll begin receiving notifications on your watch.

What does PC have to do with phone and watch? What are u talking about?

I've seen many posts on the web from people saying they're not receiving Whatsapp notifications on their watch. All answers refer to making sure that Whatsapp is set up to send notifications and that the watch is also set up correctly.

I had been receiving notifications and then they stopped. I realized that if the Whatsapp Web app is open on my PC (meaning I can use WhatsApp from my PC in addition to from my phone), then Whatsapp notifications are not received on my watch. I assume it's because Whatsapp is sending a notification and the PC app is overriding notifications to the watch. As soon as I close the WhatsApp Web app on my PC, I started receiving notifications on my watch.

It should work. Allow whatsapp notifications on the phone and in the app. Restart the phone. On my app, notifications is on the main interface. You can try another version of weareable and plug in. I have older version, because my watch do not connect on my Huawei P30 or other phone (even Samsung) with present version.
