How to turn off WhatsApp notifications on your watch

For those wondering how to turn off WhatsApp notifications on your watch, there are two main ways you can do this. The easiest way is by going into the app itself and turning off the notifications from the settings menu. But if you’re not able to access your phone in time, there’s another way you can disable the notifications using just your watch. Let’s look at both methods and then take a look at some other tips and tricks to get the most out of your WhatsApp experience on your Apple Watch!

Turning Off Notifications

Open the Watch app and swipe down. Tap Notification Settings and disable Show Previews, Messages, and Notifications. Adjust Notification Radii as needed.

Can’t Turn Them Off? Here’s What to Do

It looks like you can't turn them off, but fortunately, it is possible to silence the alerts so that they only show up in certain contexts. In fact, there are two ways for you to control when and how these alerts show up on your phone. The first way is easy - just open the app on your phone and follow the instructions for turning alerts on or off under Settings.

Turning Off Group Notifications

If you're not in a group and it is a one-on-one chat, you will only be alerted by the notification when the person you are talking to sends the message. If there are multiple people in a group, you will get an alert for each new message as soon as it is received. To stop getting any type of notifications from a WhatsApp chat, scroll all the way down to Chat settings. Under Notifications, disable any type of sound or visual alerts.

Turning Off Read Receipts

If you want to keep a secret from the person that you're texting with, then you should set it so that the other person cannot see when you've read their messages. This way, if someone sends you a very important message but does not get an immediate response, they will not know whether or not you read it. You can also decide whether or not any one person is able to see that you have read their messages.

Deactivating Location Services

On the home screen, tap the Menu button in the bottom right corner. This will bring up a list of all available functions. On this list, you should see an option for Setting near the top. Tap that to proceed to the next screen. Scroll down and select Location Services. Toggle this setting off by sliding it to the left.

Sending Replies from Your Watch

WatchOS 5.2 allows you to send and receive messages right from your wrist. One caveat: All alerts will come through regardless of the notification settings in WhatsApp’s phone app. We'll show you how to turn them off for just the Watch, so that you get only those important messages when they matter most. 

1) Open WhatsApp on your Apple Watch and go into Settings.

Deactivating WhatsApp Backup Service

In order to deactivate the backup service for WhatsApp, please perform the following steps:

- Open Settings and then select Applications. 

- Scroll down until you find WhatsApp Messenger and click it. 

- On the following screen, locate the option that says Backup (enable/disable), select it. 

- Locate the button below it that says Disable now and press it.
