Samsung galaxy watch and whatsapp calls

I've bought my galaxy watch yesterday and everything is working perfectly except for the whatsapp call. Im recieving all notifications even from whatsapp when someone sends me a message but when it comes to whatsapp call the watch doesn't vibrate or do anything to inform me that someone is calling me on whatsapp untill the call ends then the watch sends me a notification that i have a missedcall. However, im recieving phonecalls normally and when someone calls me a normal phone call the watch vibrates and allows me to answer or decline. Is their something i should turn on or do for the watch to inform me when someone is trying to call me on whatsapp like vibration or anything and not just send me a notification about a missed call when the call ends?

My smartwatch is Gear 3. Also, "call logs" is enabled on my note 10. Still cant receive calls on smartwatch. It worked before when I had note 8.

In iPhone the call logs of Whats app is displayed under "Phone" app but in Android it does not consider whats app call as a "Call" for some reason, I think it is the way how android has implemented certain features. Samsung watch displays whats app call notification for IPhone but not for Android phones which means the problem is with the os platform. I had same issues with Amazefit watch as well. This has to be sorted out using some hacks , no initiative from Samsung .

Last week I got an update and I it looks like this issue is finally solved. I've posted before an will not search for those because it may ruin my evening. It was fixed very shortly many moons ago let's hope this fix is here to stay.

 

I'm signing off here, see you later.

This post is nearly 3 years old now. How is it possible, that the issue is just the same on new devices today -.-

It seems that Samsung don't really care.  I have tried various methods, uninstalling and reinstalling the watch, re-setting the watch, sometimes using backup data, other times, treating it as new. Still I am only receiving calls and nothing else; no sms or watsapp messages.

The best features I have found on this watch are remainders and step monitoring but then why would you want to spend so much money just for these two functions. Be interested to hear what other people think.
