A lot of people are reporting issues with WhatsApp. If there's other versions I would try that. I didn't put it in OP since it's unstable.

Dear, my name is Miguel, previously I made a video of how to install WhatsApp natively on the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 (INSTALL: https://youtu.be/SUo4HhH3vuk), and now I upload these 2 videos of how I made it work from Google contacts. Best regards Miguel.

IT WORKS NOW !!!! You have to install the Google Contacts APP, synchronize them, and open WhatsApp from the contact you want to call or message. https://play.google.com/store/apps/de...
HOW TO USE WHATSAPP: https://youtu.be/_Kpm3zL4pns
GROUP CALL WAPP: https://youtu.be/iGmv3Oq61B8
Once WhatsApp is installed, you have to install the "Google Contacts" application, then make a synchronization.
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.

Hello Miguel. I have tried using your tutorial to make whatsapp work on my galaxy watch 4 classic. But I have encountered some issues, The first time, I downloaded the Apk of whatsapp from the official website. But all the app did everytime I got to the last step, it just said "Initializing" for a very long time but then got some error. The second time, I tried installing the Apk from a different website like Uptodown, but this time, after the first setup, everytime I try and open the app it instantly closes. Do you have any solution to at least one of those problems?

Thanks. Tal.

Hola Miguel. Intenté usar tu tutorial para hacer que WhatsApp funcione en mi Galaxy Watch 4 Classic. Pero me encontré con algunos problemas. La primera vez, descargué el Apk de whatsapp del sitio web oficial. Pero todo lo que hizo la aplicación cada vez que llegué al último paso, simplemente decía "Inicializando" durante mucho tiempo, pero luego recibía un error. La segunda vez, intenté instalar el Apk desde un sitio web diferente como Uptodown, pero esta vez, después de la primera configuración, cada vez que intento abrir la aplicación, se cierra instantáneamente. ¿Tiene alguna solución para al menos uno de esos problemas?

Gracias. Tal.
Unfortunately you have to go to the Samsung contacts of the Smartwatch and there choose to send a text message, and choose the WhatsApp app. Then WhatsApp opens directly to the contact you want to send a message to or call

I do not have the option to choose Whatsapp from the send message in contacts, it instantly opens in the normal messages app

I got it to work, but I cant send any messages to groups on whatsapp, and I do not think its worth it only having it on the smartwatch and not both smartwatch and phone.

To send a WhatsApp to a group, you can solve it by searching for a contact from that group and viewing the contact information. Now it is clear that it is somewhat limited, and is for use with a phone number independent of the Smartphone. For example, if the Smartwatch is LTE, you can install WhatsApp with the esim number and not have to carry the Smartphone with you. What would be great would be to be able to clone WhatsApp and use it on both devices with the same number. But for now you can't. Greetings.



Para enviar un WhatsApp a un grupo, puede resolverlo buscando un contacto de ese grupo y ver la información de contacto. Ahora está claro que es algo limitado, y es para usar con un número de teléfono independiente del Smartphone. Por ejemplo, si el Smartwatch es LTE, puedes instalar WhatsApp con el número de esim y no tener que llevar el Smartphone encima. Lo que sería genial sería poder clonar WhatsApp y usarlo en ambos dispositivos con el mismo número. Pero por ahora no puedes. Saludos.
Can you explain the sending messages to a Whatsapp group more specifically? I can't get it to work for me..

Hi all and thanks for this guide. I've found a really useful way of using this. Basically I'm using a 3 HK global travel esim on my watch. It gives me 13GB of data anywhere in the world for 12 months for just under 40USD, it also gives me a separate Hong Kong number for activating WhatsApp. (My Irish network doesn't do companion esims or any esims at all for that matter so I had to go this route.) It works perfectly for making calls etc. through my HK WhatsApp account etc. I really recommend it.

The only issue I have is that the WhatsApp option is disappearing sometimes from my Google Contacts sideloaded app, is this a known issue? Is there any other 3rd party contact wears os apps that always show the WhatsApp option I wonder?

Otherwise it's a great solution. There's times when I don't want to carry my phone but still need to just call people or listen to music and the watch can be great for that.

Hola a todos y gracias por esta guía. He encontrado una manera realmente útil de usar esto. Básicamente estoy usando un esim de viaje global de 3 HK en mi reloj. Me da 13 GB de datos en cualquier parte del mundo durante 12 meses por poco menos de 40 USD, también me da un número de Hong Kong por separado para activar WhatsApp. (Mi red irlandesa no hace esims complementarios ni esims en absoluto, así que tuve que seguir esta ruta). Funciona perfectamente para hacer llamadas, etc. a través de mi cuenta de HK WhatsApp, etc. Realmente lo recomiendo.

El único problema que tengo es que la opción de WhatsApp desaparece a veces de mi aplicación descargada Google Contacts, ¿es un problema conocido? ¿Hay algún otro contacto de terceros que use aplicaciones del sistema operativo que siempre muestren la opción de WhatsApp, me pregunto?

De lo contrario, es una gran solución. Hay momentos en los que no quiero cargar con mi teléfono, pero aún necesito llamar a la gente o escuchar música, y el reloj puede ser excelente para eso.

The WhatsApp option in the contacts also disappeared for me. I solved it by uninstalling the Samsung text messaging app on the smartwatch, I had to use Bugjaeger. Then it just uses the contacts in the Samsung Contacts app to send a message, and since it doesn't have the text messaging app, it automatically gives you the WhatsApp option.
If I'm not mistaken, the package I uninstalled is called: "com.samsung.android.messaging", I don't remember it well, as I uninstalled it a long time ago. And it doesn't need Google contacts anymore, just use Samsung contacts directly. Cheers
*********************************
La opción de WhatsApp en los contactos también me desapareció. Lo resolví desinstalando la aplicación de mensajes de texto de Samsung en el Smartwatch, tuve que usar Bugjaeger. Luego, solo usa los contactos de la aplicación Samsung Contacts para enviar un mensaje, y como no tiene la aplicación de mensajes de texto, automáticamente le da la opción de WhatsApp.
Si no me equivoco, el paquete que desinstalé se llama: "com.samsung.android.messaging", no lo recuerdo bien, ya que lo desinstalé hace mucho tiempo. Y ya no necesita los contactos de Google, solo use los contactos de Samsung directamente. Salud

Si desea instalar WhatsApp en Samsung Galaxy. Aquí hay una guía paso a paso sobre cómo hacerlo:

1. Abra Google Play Store en su Samsung Galaxy y busque WhatsApp.
2. Toque el icono de WhatsApp para instalar la aplicación.
3. Una vez instalada la aplicación, ábrala y acepte los términos y condiciones.
4. Introduce tu número de móvil y verifícalo a través de la OTP que recibirás.
5. Una vez que se verifique su número, puede comenzar a usar WhatsApp en su Samsung Galaxy.

Dear, the WhatsApp application is NOT available for Samsung Galaxy Watch 4. The video you shared only shows how to receive Smartphone Notifications on the Smartwatch. Greeting.

Good morning, the first time I had to export the contacts and import them, then they synced themselves. Also, if you open the Samsung Contacts app and put send message, it lets you choose to send it via WhatsApp. You don't need to install Google Contacts.
*********************************
Buenos días, la primera vez tuve que exportar los contactos e importarlos, luego se sincronizan solos. Asimismo, si abres la aplicación Contactos de Samsung y pones enviar mensaje, te deja elegir enviarlo por WhatsApp. No es necesario instalar Contactos de Google.

What you can do is deactivate the Samsung sms application, and there you send a message and the wahtsapp option appears, then activate the Samsung sms application again.

Lo que puedes hacer es desactivar la aplicación de sms de Samsung, y allí envías un mensaje y aparece la opción de wahtsapp, luego activas la aplicación de sms de Samsung nuevamente.

WhatsApp closes as you say. You must open the Samsung contacts app and choose send a message, then choose WhatsApp. And if it doesn't work, you must install Google Contacts and choose send a message and then choose send by Whatsapp. The truth is that it doesn't work quite right.
*********************************
WhatsApp se cierra como dices. Debe abrir la aplicación de contactos de Samsung y elegir enviar un mensaje, y luego elegir WhatsApp. Y si no funciona, debe instalar Contactos de Google y elegir enviar un mensaje y luego elegir enviar por Whatsapp. La verdad es que no funciona del todo bien Saludos

@mrfatiga22 My esteemed teammate @Badger50 translated the OP of your thread just a few hours ago. I assume that was pretty much of a work.

As a one time courtesy I've additionally translated your above posts. This is just a friendly reminder that English is the mandatory language! With reference to rule no. 4 of the XDA Forum Rules, please post in English or add at least an English translation to your Spanish posts.
4. Use the English language.
We understand that with all the different nationalities, not everyone speaks English well, but please try. If you're really unable to post in English, use an online translator. You're free to include your original message in your own language, below the English translation. (This rule covers your posts, profile entries and signature). You could try :- https://translate.google.com/ or https://www.babelfish.com/ or use one of your choice.
As a friendly warning, if you continue to post in Spanish only this or any other thread might get closed or posts just deleted without any further prior notification! Enough is enough!
In your post history, I recognised that already many - but not all - posts were translated by moderators as a courtesy support to you. Please review your complete post history and add a translation to every post that is currently Spanish only.

Anche l'opzione WhatsApp nei contatti è scomparsa per me. Ho risolto disinstallando l'app di messaggistica di testo Samsung sullo smartwatch, ho dovuto usare Bugjaeger. Quindi utilizza semplicemente i contatti nell'app Contatti Samsung per inviare un messaggio e, poiché non ha l'app di messaggistica di testo, ti dà automaticamente l'opzione WhatsApp.
Se non sbaglio, il pacchetto che ho disinstallato si chiama: "com.samsung.android.messaging", non lo ricordo bene, in quanto l'ho disinstallato molto tempo fa. E non ha più bisogno dei contatti di Google, basta usare direttamente i contatti Samsung. Saluti
*********************************
L'opzione di WhatsApp e i contatti che mi hanno lasciato. Risolvi l'installazione dell'applicazione dei messaggi di testo di Samsung e dello Smartwatch, che utilizza Bugjaeger. L'utente, solo con i contatti dell'applicazione Samsung Contatti per l'invio di un messaggio, e come non tiene l'applicazione di un messaggio di testo, automaticamente dall'opzione di WhatsApp.
Si no me equivoco, el paquete que desinstalé se llama: "com.samsung.android.messaging", no lo recuerdo bien, ya que lo desinstalé hace mucho tiempo. Y ya non necesita los contactos de Google, usa solo los contactos de Samsung direttamente. Saluto

risolto

"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

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??

    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.

    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.

    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.
