After the update, did you enable the additional notifications in the gear manager? if you click on notifications, at the bottom there is a 'more notifications' toggle, which then allows you to have any app installed (that would normall have notifications in your task bar) send their notifications to the gear.

This worked for me. I can read the messages from hangouts without any issue at all. I also have facebook notifications and such shown on the watch as well.

Motorola RAZR
Samsung u510
Samsung Instinct
Samsung Omnia II
HTC Desire Z
Samsung Galaxy Note 1 - 16GB - White
Samsung Galaxy Note 3 - 32GB - Black **Surprisingly, under warranty, they even fixed the physical damage I caused. Go figure...**

I'm having the same issue I'm on wicked v9 now with a samsung galaxy s4 for t-mobile and I don't see a "more notifications" tab anywhere just a notification tab. It has hangout on it but it only opens the app on the phone.

The latest version available to me on the Samsung App Store. Both Note 3 and Gear are full stock, no rooting.

Attached screen caps of how it shows up on my phone. Not sure if it would be different on a different carrier variant, different roms, or different phones etc.

I don't have that option on my gear. I live in the United States and my gear is through my Verizon Galaxy Note 3. Thanks in advance

I am actually shocked. I honestly thought software-wise (with any OTA/Kies updates) we recieved them at the same time. I usually check for availability with AT&T or another american provider because the ones here in Canada are TERRIBLE at giving out updated information.

Sorry I couldn't be of help

That's okay I just got the gear and the Note 3 a couple of days ago. Us in the states usually get stuff late
