WhatsApp finally arrives on Apple Watch with WristChat app

Published

WhatsApp is one of the most popular messaging apps in the world, but when it comes to Apple platforms, it’s only available for iPhone and Mac. Now, thanks to developer Adam Foote, Apple Watch users can finally access WhatsApp with the new WristChat app.

WristChat uses the WhatsApp Web API to access user messages on the smartwatch app. However, the app was built using SwiftUI to provide an interface designed for the Apple Watch. After installing the app on your Apple Watch, all you need to do is scan the QR code on the screen with WhatsApp on your phone.

Once set up for the first time, the app displays a list of all your recent messages, similar to what you get in Apple’s Messages app. You can then tap on a conversation to view messages and even send a new one. Users will also find several interface customization options. For example, the app lets you choose whether you want to see your contacts’ profile pictures in the message list and change the color of the message popups. The app has built-in haptic feedback and hints to help users navigate the app.

Users can also send WhatsApp messages using WristChat. While you can’t start a new conversation from the app, it’s possible to send messages in any of your current conversations. You can use any of the input methods available for Apple Watch, such as dictation and Scribble.

The app integrates with WristBoard, the Apple Watch keyboard app formerly called Shift Keyboard. With WristBoard, you can not only type on a full keyboard, but also have access to autocorrect and suggestions. What’s more, it works with any Apple Watch model, not just the Series 7.

WristChat and WristBoard are available on the App Store for $3 each.

Windows 11 build released with 2 GB of RAM and

Third-party company NTDEV has unveiled a modification of Windows 11 called Tiny11. This is a light version of Windows 11 Pro 22H2, from which everything superfluous was removed, including the Microsoft Edge browser. At the same time, it left a calculator, notepad, Paint, terminal, Microsoft Store and features for people with disabilities.

The main feature of the assembly is reduced system requirements. If the regular Windows 11 Pro 22H2 requires 4 GB of RAM and at least 24 GB of disk space (official requirements say 64 GB), then the lite version is 2 GB and 8 GB, respectively. That is, it will work fine even on relatively weak PCs and laptops.

At the same time, the developers of the modification stated that this is not a hacked version, for activation you need to buy a license key from Microsoft or official partners. You can download the assembly here.

Microsoft has not yet responded to such experiments, so it is unclear whether they will prohibit such modifications.

Earlier it was reported that the company began to “spam” ads for Windows 11, displaying it in full screen, and it is difficult to refuse the installation.
