Steps to use the new Walkie-Talkie app for Galaxy Watch 4 series
In order to use the new app, you have to register your Samsung account on a smartphone. The smartphone should be connected to your Watch 4 or Watch 4 Classic. Samsung has said that for the first time you should use the walkie-talkie app when your watch is connected to your device. However, once you are done setting the app, your watch doesn’t need to stay connected to your smartphone for the feature to work.
When you are done installing WalkieTalkie app on your Watch;you will have to pair it with another Galaxy Watch 4 series watch. Only after that, you will be able to use the app. Once you are connected, just touch and hold the microphone icon on the watch to start talking with friends and other people in your contacts. The app will ask you for permissions including the watch’s microphone and contacts.
Anyways, chances are most people won’t find this feature that useful. Plus, there are other smartwatches that have the same feature. For instance, premium watches from Apple have the same feature.
