WatchChat is the first app that allows you to send and receive WhatsApp messages on your Apple Watch. You only need to scan a QR code and then you are ready to roll!

With WatchChat, you can
- access all of your WhatsApp chats (and group chats)
- reply to chats via keyboard, quick replies, dictation and scribble
- send voice messages
- use a variety of different keyboard layouts*
- view pictures (and zoom into them in native resolution)
- listen to voice messages
- customize quick replies and chat font size
- start a new chat right from the Watch
- …

*The currently supported keyboard layouts are:
- FlickType (English)
- ABC (English, Deutsch, Español, Português, אבגדה, Ελληνικά, Suomi, русский)
- QWERTY (English, Español, Italiano)
- QWERTZ (Deutsch)
- AZERTY (Français)
- אבגדה)עברית)

Setting up the app for the first time only takes 4 simple steps:
- open the app on your Apple Watch
- open WhatsApp
- in WhatsApp, go to "Settings" > "WhatsApp Web/Desktop" > "Scan QR Code"
- scan the QR code that will appear on your Apple Watch after 10-30 seconds
- if a popup comes up, just try again, it will work out eventually :)

As this is a 3rd-party-app, I would really appreciate if you had suggestions for further development so I can take your ideas into consideration. If you encounter issues while using the app, don't hesitate to contact me, I am more than happy to help.

Please keep in mind that, as the app isn’t officially affiliated with WhatsApp, available features and functionality are subject to change. To keep up with everything, the app has been updated more than 50 times since its release in 2017 - I am always looking for ways to offer new features or improve the existing ones.

Correct mais à améliorer

Pas mal, relativement fonctionnel mais quelques reproches :
- utilise le slot WhatsApp Web/Desktop : du coup, il faut choisir entre la montre ou le navigateur de bureau ;
- la synchronisation des messages est longue et fastidieuse : pourquoi ne pas le faire en arrière plan ? ;
- les réponses rapides que je définis sur l’application iPhone ne sont jamais synchroniser sur la montre, les bouton « iCloud Export/Import » ne font rien non plus. D’ailleurs, à quoi sont-ils censés servir ?
Merci tout de même au développeur pour l’initiative. ;-)

Application très fonctionnelle et simple d’utilisation

L’application est très simple de connexion et d’utilisation. Elle met quelques secondes pour actualiser les conversations après ouverture.
J’ai eu quelques soucis de synchronisation au moment de l’installation qui était lié au wifi. J’ai eu une réponse très rapide et efficace du concepteur.

Je recommande vivement
