Troubleshooting an Apple Watch Walkie-Talkie Invite Issue

It is possible that your Apple Watch Walkie-Talkie invite is not working due to an issue with your device or its connection. To try and resolve the issue, we recommend restarting both your Apple Watch and iPhone, then attempting to send the invitation again. If that doesn’t work, try swiping left on the contact in the Walkie-Talkie app, then tapping the delete button. If you continue to have issues, reach out to Apple Support for further assistance.

Troubleshooting Connection Issues with Apple Watch Walkie-Talkie

Connection failure means that your Apple Watch is unable to establish a connection with the person you are trying to contact. This could be caused by a number of factors, such as a poor internet connection, a weak Bluetooth signal, or if the person you are trying to contact is not using an iPhone or an Apple Watch. To troubleshoot this issue, try restarting your watch, restarting your phone, and making sure that both devices are connected to the same Wi-Fi network. If this doesn’t work, delete the contact from the Walkie Talkie app on your watch and reenter their information again. Finally, try inviting them again. If all else fails, sign out of FaceTime on your phone and then sign back in.

Using Apple Watch Walkie-Talkie

To get your Apple Watch Walkie-Talkie to work, you’ll need to open the Walkie-Talkie app on your Apple Watch. Tap your friend’s name and then touch and hold the Talk button. Speak into the microphone, and if your friend has made themselves available, Walkie-Talkie opens on their Apple Watch and they’ll hear what you said. That’s all it takes!

Troubleshooting Walkie-Talkie Invite Issues

It’s possible that your friend is not set up to receive Walkie-Talkie invitations. To use Walkie-Talkie, both you and your friend need to have Apple Watch Series 1 or later with watchOS 5 or later, and an iPhone 6s or later with iOS 12.4 or later. Additionally, both you and your friend need to be signed in to iCloud with the same Apple ID and be connected to Wi-Fi or cellular. If your friend meets these requirements and is still not able to receive your invite, they may need to restart their Apple Watch and iPhone.

Accepting a Walkie-Talkie Invite

To accept a Walkie-Talkie invite, open the Apple Watch app on your iPhone and go to the Walkie-Talkie tab. Tap the invite, then tap Accept. Once accepted, you can start using Walkie-Talkie with the person who sent you the invite. If you want to always accept Walkie-Talkie calls from this person in the future, tap Always Allow after accepting the invite.
