Which Calling and Messaging Apps Can You Get For Apple Watch?
Recently, a number of messaging apps have been made available for Apple Watch, and it’s a trend that will only continue as time goes on and new devices emerge in the Wearables space.
Most recently, Voxer launched on the platform, bringing over its messaging abilities from its Push to talk application and enabling users to more easily keep tabs of new voice, text, and photo messages.
Of course, Voxer, like other apps launching on the Apple Watch, doesn’t yet have voice compatibility until Apple releases the development APIs for voice publicly. Still, it’s a step in the right direction for keeping yourself connected Dick Tracy style.
Vonage also launched on the platform earlier this month, Vonage Mobile users can view and respond to messages and phone calls at a glance without having to pull out their phone.
Vonage Mobile for the Apple Watch also allows users to set personal reminders to return a phone call or message at a later time. This can be done directly from the watch’s incoming call screen or by going to recent calls and messages on the watch. Vonage Mobile for Apple Watch also mirrors your phone’s notifications, so there is no need to pick up your iPhone to see who is calling or to reject a call you don’t want to answer.
Vonage Mobile is also available for Android Wear.
Skype is also available for the Apple Watch and provides you with quick access to all of your Skype text-based messages. You can also access emoticons to give your messages a little more emotional flair.
WeChat is another app that recently launched on the wearable, and not only includes messaging support, but also includes support for WeChat’s Moments feature and the ability to accept friend requests, view nearby users, and more.
Of course, these apps are just the beginning, and more and more messaging apps are making the jump to the wearables space. What app would you like to see on Apple Watch next? Post your thoughts in the comments below!
