Popular cross-platform messaging service WhatsApp has released an update to its Android app which now includes rich wrist-based notifications for Android Wear users. While we’ve had notifications for a while now, the new update brings a host of new features, including:

  • Full, long message viewing
  • Nested/stacked messages with sliding navigation between them
  • Reply via voice

Incoming messages can be dismissed with just a swipe, like a Hangouts message for example. I’m not a huge WhatsApp user, but you might be, so let us know what you think of the new update.
