Setting Up WhatsApp Business on Your Apple Watch

Installing WhatsApp Business on Your iPhone

The first step in using WhatsApp Business on your Apple Watch is to download and install the app on your iPhone. You can do this by following these steps:

  1. Open the App Store on your iPhone
  2. Search for “WhatsApp Business”
  3. Tap “Get” next to the app
  4. Enter your Apple ID password
  5. Wait for the app to download and install

Pairing Your Apple Watch with Your iPhone

Once you have downloaded and installed WhatsApp Business on your iPhone, the next step is to pair your Apple Watch with your iPhone. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Make sure your Apple Watch and iPhone are close to each other
  2. Open the Watch app on your iPhone
  3. Tap “Start Pairing”
  4. Follow the on-screen instructions to pair your devices

Enabling WhatsApp Business Notifications on Apple Watch

After you have paired your Apple Watch with your iPhone, the next step is to enable WhatsApp Business notifications on your Apple Watch. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Watch app on your iPhone
  2. Scroll down and tap “Notifications”
  3. Scroll down and find “WhatsApp Business”
  4. Toggle the switch next to “Allow Notifications” to on

Of course the handy thing here is that you can follow the same process to turn “Allow Notifications” to off for when you’re out of office, without making yourself inaccessible on your personal WhatsApp. Much better for work life balance, which is another of the core benefits of having WhatsApp Business in the first place!

Accessing Chats and Conversations

Once you have set up WhatsApp Business on your Apple Watch, you can access your chats and conversations by using the digital crown on your watch. Simply scroll through your chats and conversations, and tap on the one you want to reply to or view.

Viewing and Responding to Messages

To view and respond to messages on WhatsApp Business using your Apple Watch, tap on the chat or conversation you want to respond to.

If you want to send a quick reply, simply tap on the “Reply” button next to the message you want to reply to. You can also use custom quick replies that you have set up in the WhatsApp Business app on your iPhone.

If you want to send a longer message, you can use the dictation feature on your Apple Watch to speak your message and have it transcribed automatically. Always worth checking for typos before you send, though, just in case!

Other Functions

You can manage your business contacts on WhatsApp Business using your Apple Watch. Simply tap on the “Contacts” tab in the app, and scroll through your list of contacts. You can add new contacts, edit existing contacts, and view detailed information about each contact.

You can also use quick replies and automatic responses for WhatsApp Business on your Apple Watch in much the same way as on the phone or desktop app, which is extremely useful and can be a huge time saver.

It’s pretty easy to see that using WhatsApp Business on your Apple Watch is a great way to stay connected with your customers while you’re out and about, or just when you can’t keep your phone on hand as easily. Do remember that you can’t have WhatsApp Business and WhatsApp on the same phone or using the same number though, so to maximise how efficiently you manage your business communications from your wrist you’ll need to use a virtual WhatsApp number. Handily, we’ve already got that sorted for you, and you can be ready to go in just a few clicks, with full flexibility to cancel any time if you need to.
