Are you having trouble getting WhatsApp notifications to show up on your Apple Watch? You’re not alone. Many people have encountered this issue, and it can be quite frustrating. Fortunately, there is a simple solution to get WhatsApp notifications to show up on your Apple Watch.

The first thing you should do is make sure that the mirroring feature is enabled in the Notifications section of the Apple Watch app. To do this, open the app and select ‘Notifications’ from the ‘My Watch’ tab. Scroll down and find ‘Mirror iPhone Alerts From’ and make sure that WhatsApp is enabled by toggling it on.

Once this is done, you will need to ensure that notifications are turned on for WhatsApp in your iPhone settings. To do this, open the Settings app then select ‘Notifications’ and scroll down until you find ‘WhatsApp’. Ensure that ‘Allow Notifications’ is enabled by swiping it to the right (the green switch should be visible).

If you have followed these steps but are still not seeing any notifications on your Apple Watch, try double-checking all of your settings again and making sure that everything has been properly enabled and configured. If everything seems correct but you are still not receiving any notifications, try restarting both devices (iPhone and watch) as this may help resolve any lingering issues with connections between them.

With these simple steps, you should now be able to receive WhatsApp notifications on your Apple Watch without any problems!

Why Is WhatsApp Not Showing on Apple Watch?

If WhatsApp is not showing up on your Apple Watch, it is likely due to the fact that you have not enabled the setting to mirror iPhone alerts from WhatsApp. To do this, go to Notifications on your Apple Watch and scroll down to the section called MIRROR IPHONE ALERTS FROM. Toggle on WhatsApp at the bottom and this should enable notifications from WhatsApp to appear on your Apple Watch. If it still doesn’t show up, try restarting both your iPhone and Apple Watch. If issues persist, contact Apple Support for further assistance.
