App Description

Read and respond to WhatsApp messages on your Apple Watch with WristChat.

WhatsApp offers no native Apple Watch app, WristChat aims to plug that gap! With its unique integration with WristBoard, you can even type messages using a full keyboard on your Apple Watch.

Just like WhatsApp Web, setup is done through simply scanning a QR Code and you’ll have instant access to all of your private and group chat messages!

WristChat contains these great features:


Quickly get access to all of your WhatsApp messages from the convenience of your Apple Watch with no need to take your iPhone out!


WristChat makes it quick & easy to respond to incoming WhatsApp messages directly from your wrist. Simply tap the reply button and you’ll be able to use standard Apple Watch input methods to respond.


If you’re not a fan of Scribble or Voice Dictation, WristChat provides a unique integration with the WristBoard keyboard app, developed specifically for Apple Watch.

WristBoard supports multiple languages, layouts, autocorrect, swipe typing and much more! You’ll be able to type WhatsApp messages in no time!


Know when your message is pending, sent, delivered or read just like WhatsApp! You'll see a small indicator below your messages so you know whether your message has reached the recipient.


New in watchOS 8, WristChat supports hiding message contents when your wrist is down on Apple Watch models with the Always-on-Display.


Customize the color of your chat bubbles from over 10 supported colors.


As well as supporting individual chats, there’s full support for chatting in groups too!
