Great news for all of you who own an Apple Watch and love WhatsApp. In fact, thanks to the last iOS 9.1. update, you can benefit of the “Quick Reply” feature not only when you are using your iPhone, but from your Apple Watch as well. With this major improvement (which comes after one year from the launch of this popular wrist smartwatch), both Apple and WhatsApp take a big step ahead to meet the needs of their users. The Facebook-owned app is now one of the most used instant messaging application around the world, and today proves why: its team is flexible and inexhaustible.

There is no doubt that this last function of WhatsApp is really time-saving as it allows you to reply to your messages straight from the notification using message presets, or, if you prefer, you can even dictate your replies and your Apple Watch will send them to the intended recipient. It’s great, isn’t it? This excellent and useful feature already has a brief but interesting history.
In fact it was first introduced with iOS 8, but, until a few weeks ago, it was possible to use it only with Apple’s app. It was with the arrival of iOS 9 that things have really began to change, since WhatsApp has made available this function for iPhone users with iOS 9.1. In addition, to conclude, it’s also nice to know that together with the Quick Reply feature, iOS 9.1 has brought also other updates such as many new emojis and the Live Photos app.
