Update: Same number and same time!



Dear, my name is Miguel, I previously made a video on how to install WhatsApp natively on the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 (INSTALL:
), and now I upload these 2 videos on how I made it work from Google contacts. Greetings Michael.

NOW IT WORKS !!!! You have to install the Google Contacts APP, synchronize them and open WhatsApp from the contact you want to call or send a message to.

HOW TO USE WHATSAPP: https://youtu.be/_Kpm3zL4pns
WHATSAPP GROUP CALL: https://youtu.be/iGmv3Oq61B8

Once WhatsApp is installed, you need to install the "Google Contacts" app, then do a sync.
And from the Google Contacts App you can use WhatsApp.
Unfortunately if you want to open WhatsApp directly it closes.
That is why the need to Install the Google Contacts App.

You can download the Apk from Uptodown. Or you can use an Application such as "Apk Analyzer" that transforms the Contacts App that you already have on your Smartphone, into an Apk file. This last option is safer. Then you must install the Apk on the Smartwatch.
1) https://google-contacts.uptodown.com/android
2) https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=sk.styk.martin.apkanalyzer

DO you have links to working APK's for the watch?
In the installation video and in the description of this post you have the links of the necessary files. Only the Apk of the contacts is missing, which I leave you the links below.

I could just download Google Contacts from here? https://www.apkmirror.com/apk/google-inc/google-contacts/google-contacts-3-58-1-410541307-release/

What Whatsapp APK needs to be downloaded onto the phone?

This is cool, thanks for the explanations.
I am not a native spanish speaker (I speak portuguese, so very similar languages) and it was easy to understand. But I think with the videos, one can follow pretty good.

I found one problem though.
I have a 42mm and a 46mm smartwatch.

On the 42mm you cannot get past the part where you type in your name, because the button is "hidden" (the screen is too small) and you can't scroll down. On the 46mm I can see the very top of the button, thus I can click and get past.

And would be nice to have the same number on phone and watch, but anyway, that's whatsapp "fault" that does not allow more than 1 mobile.

In my case when I install whatsapp on watch 4 & use the same number that I have in my phone, it logs out from my phone. Any solution for this?
Good morning, in that case you have to clone WhatsApp. For that you need to Root the Smartphone and the smartwatch. Install titanium backup pro apk, and do some very complicated procedures. But the easiest thing is to install the Informer app, which gives you the possibility of receiving WhatsApp notifications from the Smartphone to the smartwatch, and listening to audios, viewing photos, etc., and also responding with audio, etc. best regards Miguel

Good morning with the Bujaeger app you can reduce the size of the screen. You have to connect through Adb and with the command "wm density 150" you will shrink the screen and you will see the button. Then you use the "wm density reset" command and it goes back to the original size. Greetings Miguel

Oficial WhatsApp:
Google Contacts:

If you're right, I missed that step, you can download it from here: https://google-contacts.uptodown.com/android (I have to install it with Bujaeger, just like the WhatsApp Apk), or you can use the app "Apk Analizer" and export the Apk Google Contacts from your Smartphone, but it is more complicated. Use the Uptodown Apk which I think is a secure page. Best regards Miguel

Thanks, I'll give it a try.

BTW, I don't know if this was said already, but your method works for Telegram as well.
Can send, receive, even make calls via Telegram

One question, changing the size of the screen changes on every aspect of the watch, can I reduce it from app to app?
Ex.: have only Telegram be smaller, but other apps and app gallery all stay normal.

Good morning, your question is very interesting. I don't know how to do it. I only know how to shrink the entire independent screen of the app.

Thanks, I'll give it a try.

It is true, it can also be used to install Telegram, Messenger, Google Home, Google Go version 2.08, Spotify Lite, Google go, etc. It works for a lot of APKs. Greetings

This is great and Whatsapp worked, thanks!! What APK did you use to get Google Home working? The APK I created from my phone was of version 12.46.1.7 but it wouldn't install.

The theme that before when you installed an app on your Smartphone, it was installed with all the libraries. The libraries are to be able to use the app in any Operating System. For example wear uses the armeabi-v7a library, new smartphones use arm64, etc. But as of November 2021, Google eliminated the libraries that your Smartphone did not use and only leaves the arm64 library, so that 90% of your Smartphone apps, you will not be able to use them on the smartwatch. I was lucky enough to extract the Apk from Google Home before November with all the libraries from my Smartphone, but now, I had to resort to the Uptodown page. On this page you can download the Apk, which comes with all the available libraries. https://chromecast.uptodown.com/android Saludos cordiales Miguel

Could you enable NFC payment with BBVA Go? I'm stuck in "Activar Dispositivo" because the activate button is off the screen, even with 180dpi's

Pudiste habilitar los pago con NFC con BBVa go? Yo no puedo avanzar de "Activar dispositivo" por que el boton de habilitar esta fuera de la pantalla incluso cambiando los dpi a 180

Yes, I was able to activate it, you have to go to the menu on the left, NFC appears and only then shrink the screen. In the afternoon I upload video

if i am not mistaken, once you will verify your phone number on the samsung watch 4, whatsapp will disconnect from your native phone and will no longer work on your actual phone, isn't that correct? because whatsapp does not allow 2 phones connected to a number.

So basically that means that using WhatsApp simultaneously with the Watch and your Native Phone will not work... you will have to verify with SMS everytime you switch device

i finally was able to enable it using 250dpi and make a payment, but works like s****. When i want to make a payment if the screen is off it fails or says i have to recheck the lockscreen.

sadly not usable at all at least a watch4 version is released.

Now suppose you have the LTE Smartwatch ... It would be very useful to have the native WhatsApp on your smartwatch and not depend on the Smartphone .... To see the "Next" button you must shrink the screen with the wm density 150 command. And then restore the screen with "wm density reset". Your smartwatch should be 42mm, and mine is 44mm. The idea is to bring native WhatsApp on a Samsung galaxy watch 4 LTE with e-sim

Dear, in both Samsung Pay and Google play, the screen must be on. It is a defect of the smartwatch. Unfortunately when you turn to bring the smartwatch closer to the terminal, the screen of the Smartwatch turns off, but that also happens with Samsung Pay and Google Pay. Best regards Miguel

    NOW IT WORKS !!!! You have to install the Google Contacts APP, synchronize them and open WhatsApp from the contact you want to call or send a message to.

    HOW TO USE WHATSAPP: https://youtu.be/_Kpm3zL4pns
    WHATSAPP GROUP CALL: https://youtu.be/iGmv3Oq61B8

    Once WhatsApp is installed, you need to install the "Google Contacts" app, then do a sync.
    And from the Google Contacts App you can use WhatsApp.
    Unfortunately if you want to open WhatsApp directly it closes.
    That is why the need to Install the Google Contacts App.

    Good morning, you can use the Wassap Open app, which is in the Play Store of the Smartwatch, what it does, the App, is to open the WhatsApp directly in the sending of. a message, h this way WhatsApp does not close. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.brau.tecno.wasapopen


    Hi, have you tried the Open WhatsApp On Wear app, it's similar to Wassap open, but it's free and doesn't include the self-advertising text when sending a message.

    3
    I actually read about the article of WhatsApp now letting it's account sync on multiple devices and tried this method right away and I got till the point where it shows on the watch that the messages are syncing but then the app closes on the watch and does not open after that, anyone faced this "app closing" issue??

    Yes, you are missing to install the "bridge" app, the guide in the previous post is incomplete. I guess you forgot to specify it.

    Here below you have all the explanation to make it work.

    "VERY IMPORTANT"

    I ask the moderators to highlight this procedure

    With the latest update of Whatsapp in beta version it allows you to have on our smartwhact, whatsapp synchronized with our main phone number and then have it synchronized, this update allows you to have the same phone number up to four devices.

    Method:
    1. Download WhatsApp Messenger 2.22.24.18 beta apk from the following link

    2. install or better update the app to the current one in use on your mobile device.

    3. Install the application on our smartwhact with the same apk with the applications "Easy Fire Tools" or "Bugjaeger".
    N.B. this process should already be known enough, in the eventuality it will be included for those who do not know.

    4.Once the app is also installed on Smartwach, start it, subsequently, a QR code will be automatically generated for you to scan with the whatsapp app of your device, just go to the three dots at the top right, and click on Connected devices -> connect a device -> scan the QR code issued by our Smartwatch and that's it.

    If the qrcode is too large and cannot be viewed in full, use the "Bugjaeger" app to reduce the screen size. You have to connect via Adb and with the command "wm density 150" you will make the screen smaller and you will see the button. Then you use the "wm density reset" command and go back to the original size
