Since 2017, WatchChat is the fastest and most reliable app that allows you to send and receive WhatsApp messages on your Apple Watch. To offer the widest range of features and up-to-date technology the app has been updated more than 60 times in the past 3 years and we will continue to do so.

You only need to scan a QR code and then you can:

- access all of your WhatsApp chats (and group chats)
- use a VARIETY of different KEYBOARD LAYOUTS*
- watch VIDEOS
- view STICKERS and HD PICTURES (and ZOOM into them in native resolution)
- CUSTOMIZE your quick replies
- start a new chat right from the Watch
- set each chat's font size
- …

... all with full respect to your privacy, WatchChat does not collect any personal data.

*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) > (Linked Devices / WhatsApp Web) > (Link a device)
- 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 70 times since its release in 2017 - I am always looking for ways to offer new features or improve the existing ones.

You can use the app for free forever, but if you want to support the app's further development, the "Support WatchChat Development" subscription CAN be purchased for free users to access the "Contacts" and "Status" sections and will grant access to future additions. After the free trial period, if offered, the subscription automatically renews with the price and duration given in the purchase button unless it is canceled at least 24 hours before the end of the current period. Payment will be charged to your Apple ID account at the confirmation of purchase. Your account will be charged for renewal within 24 hours prior to the end of the current period. YOU CAN MANAGE AND CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTIONS BY GOING TO YOUR ACCOUNT SETTINGS ON THE APP STORE AFTER PURCHASE. Any unused portion of a free trial period, if offered, will be forfeited when the user purchases a subscription to that publication, where applicable.

As of January, IF you want to sign up for the subscription, the free trial period is 3 days, it is billed annually and the price is about the equivalent of 3 USD.

I love this app

I use WhatsApp all the time to talk to friends, family, & work. The Watch Chat app allows me to use WhatsApp on my Apple Watch like I do on my iPhone instead of just replying like the Apple Watch does without the Watch Chat app. I even paid the one time fee to have all of Watch Chat app features. The only thing that I would like fixed is if I change a contact name in my phone that contact name should change in my Watch Chat app chat list. Also I would like to be able to delete chats in my Watch Chat app chat list. Other then that the app works great and I will continue to use it.

I can see clearly now…

Thanks to this wonderful app WatchChat I can now see all the WhatsApp images that people send to me right on my Apple Watch! And the support has been personal, professional and rapid! It looks like improvements are coming as well! I’ve got the lifetime membership and it’s worth every penny and a lot more! If you are like me and WhatsApp is one of your key apps on your iPhone this WatchChat app is a must! Give it a try at no cost and I’m sure you’ll be convinced. Perfect! It keeps getting better and better. I love this app for my Apple Watch! Steve on 11 August 2023!

Worth every penny.

Just need to understand it. But everything works. Watch microphone for audios, old school typing like the ABC. DEF etc. swipe letters like the default for the watch and phone keyboard (asks you to type on your phone) so you got 3 keyboards. The watch mic unlocks once you purchase. It’s 3.99 a year I think and 7.99 one time (lifetime) You can see images sent to you, videos have to download and gifs too. Emoji’s. Everything works. I really like this. Also you can dictate. Took a lot of effort to make this app work.
