WhatsApp messenger for Android has rolled out a beta update that adds support for Android Wear devices. With this update, WhatsApp users on smartwatches will now be able to get a complete preview of received messages, stacked notifications as well as reply to messages with voice.
The updated Version 2.11.318 of WhatsApp now allows users of Android Wear to get the entire message displayed on their watch.
The most interesting feature in the update is that users can now send voice replies to their friends in the message thread.
The app also shows you the individual sender’s name in a group conversation.
Stacked notifications let you expand and read each of the several WhatsApp messages separately. Amazingly, Facebook owned WhatsApp has more than 500 million users and some of them may already own a smartwatch.
The update is now available for download on the company’s website.
