    Hi... I cant seem to get whatsapp notifications on my Apple watch. I switched on my notifications on my Apple watch app on my iPhone. The whatsapp icon is nowhere to be seen on the watch. I even deleted and then reinstalled whatsapp on my phone, still no luck. Frustrating! Please assist:(

    Ok, I don't have the Whatsapp app, so these instructions are going to be kind of general, and may or may not apply.

    Go to the Apple Watch app on the iPhone and make sure Whatsapp is turned on in the My Watch tab. Once it is on and shows installed you can check to see if it now shows up in the Notifications in the Apple Watch App. You should also dig around in the Whatsapp app and see if there are any watch specific settings for notifications and/or complications.

    Once the app is installed, it should show up in the apps on the watch (click the crown). After you launch it once you'll see the option to permanently add it to your dock (click the side button). This should work whether the notifications work or not.

    Good luck.

    Whatsapp doesn't appear in the app layout of your Apple Watch, if it's that where you're missing the app icon. Just make sure you've enabled "Mirror iPhone Alerts From" next to Whatsapp in the Watch app of your iPhone, in Notifications. That's all you have to do.

    Tbh, sometimes I'm missing a few messages as well, no idea why I don't get notifications from time to time. In general, it works without problems.

    Problem sorted! Notifications coming through now. After rebooting the watch, the whatsapp icon appeared under the notification section on the watch app on my phone.
    Who knew a simple reboot would do the trick! Thanks btw:)

    I can't get whatsapp on my watch
    It doesn't appear on my watch app under apps but if I go to the notifications tab on the watch app it's there and I've got the mirroring on
    Any suggestions?

    You have to download the Apple Watch companion app to your iPhone, then it will appear in your app list in the Watch app on your iphone and can then be downloaded to your Apple Watch. Whatsapp for Apple Watch (Iwatch)

    Hi
    I have the watch app on my phone but whatsapp shoes to appear in the list of apps
    Is there another app I need?
    When I go on to the watch app and go into notifications, whatsapp appears under 'mirror phone alerts from' but doesn't appear anywhere else on the watch app

    If you wish to get notifications of your WhatsApp messages on your Apple Watch, enable "Mirror iPhone Alerts from:" for WhatsApp. When a message appears on the iPhone, you can see it on your Watch as well. There's no extra app for this, and the app icon will not appear in the App Layout on your Watch.

    I have an Apple watch 2 (updated) and I don't see Whatsapp on my App list at all. I can find it however (only now) under Mirror Alerts (switched on) nut nothing happens. No notifs whatsoever. I cannot find it under My Watch tab, does not show up in the apps on the watch (when I click the crown) and not on the dock.

    Bought mine in the Middle East, while my friend bought his in Europe and Whatsapp is included on his list of apps and not in mine. And he can get notifications and reply, no issues. Please help!

    You will not find the app on your watch at all. It just appears in the Watch app on your iPhone, where you can enable mirroring.

    If you read through the thread above, you'll see that rebooting the Apple Watch helped another member with the same problem. Give it a try, maybe it'll help you as well. Also reboot the iPhone too.

    Hope that helps.

    When you scroll to the bottom of the message, you should find "Reply" above "Dismiss" when you get a Whatsapp notification on your iPhone.

    Take a look at your settings in the Watch app. Make sure everything is set up correctly.
