Apple has brought the Walkie Talkie app back to the Apple Watch, after it disable the feature earlier this month owing to security vulnerability. Walkie Talkie is a FaceTime feature that enables push-to-talk calls between users, provided they grant permission.
As well as the iOS 12.4 software update, Apple also released a new software update for the Apple Watch, watchOS 5.3.
The watchOS 5.3 software update brings some new features to the Apple Watch; it also brings the ability to use the Walkie Talkie feature on the device again. This feature was previously disabled after a security bug was discovered with it, this has now been fixed. The latest watchOS update — version 5.3 — also further expands support for the Apple Watch’s EKG feature and irregular heartbeat detection to Canada and Singapore.
Update iOS 12.4 AND WatchOS 5.3 to restore Walkie-Talkie
After you update both your iPhone and your Watch, the Walkie-Talkie app and service works just like it did before, minus the security issue
To update your iOS, go to Settings > General > Software Update or use iTunes if you prefer
For watchOS updates, go to the dedicated Apple Watch app on your paired iPhone and then choose General > Software Update. Remember that Apple requires your Apple Watch to have at least 50 % battery, placed on its charger and near your iPhone in order to update watchOS
Walkie-Talkie compatible Apple Watch models
Apple Watch Series 1-4
Wi-Fi and Cellular LTE both support the Walkie-Talkie feature
Walkie-Talkie is not currently available in China, UAE, and Pakistan
Walkie-Talkie app does not currently work with devices using the same Apple ID
How to Use Walkie-Talkie on Apple Watch
Walkie-Talkie is a fun, simple new way to connect with another user with a compatible Apple Watch. Open the Walkie-Talkie app on your Apple Watch for the first time.
Invite a friend to use Walkie-Talkie:
Scroll down the list of contacts, and then tap a name to send an invitation.
When your contact accepts the invitation, you can start a Walkie-Talkie conversation when both of you are available.
To add another contact, tap the Add button on the Walkie-Talkie screen, then choose a contact.
Walkie-Talkie conversation on your Apple Watch:
Open the Walkie-Talkie app on your Apple Watch.
Tap your friend’s name.
Touch and hold the Talk button, then speak.
If your friend has made themselves available, Walkie-Talkie opens on their Apple Watch and they’ll hear what you said. To adjust the volume while you’re talking, turn the Digital Crown.
How to make Unavailable yourself?
Touch and hold the bottom of the screen, then swipe up to open Control Center.
Scroll up, and then tap the Walkie-Talkie button.
Or, in the Walkie-Talkie app on your Apple Watch, scroll to the top of the screen, then turn off Available. Turning on theatre mode also makes you unavailable for Walkie-Talkie.
