Those of you equipped with an Apple Watch might be pleased to know that Apple has unveiled a new Walkie-Talkie application they have created specifically for the new watchOS 5 wearable operating system. Which will be rolling out later this year during the fall 2018. The new Apple Watch Walkie-Talkie application was quickly demonstrated on the stage at the official Apple Keynote during the first day of the Apple WWDC 2018 developers conference currently taking place.
Simply request a friend to join you on the Watch Walkie-Talkie app once and then enjoy speech communication wherever they may be in the world. When you receive a message users will receive a haptic buzz and beep before they hear the voice. Check out the demonstration video below to learn more about what you can expect from the new Apple Walkie-Talkie application.
“Activity competitions with your friends. Brand-new workouts. Innovations to help you take your running further. And more intelligent, fun ways to keep you connected to the people and information you care about. With watchOS 5, you can do even more with your Apple Watch from your morning workout to lights out.”
The application will provide a quick list of all connected friends and the quick tap allows you to speak your message and send it directly to their Apple Watch, offering a midpoint between a text message and a phone call. The new watch-to-watch connection will work over both cellular and wireless connections.
