Install for the Apple Watch Walkie-Talkie Feature

The watchOS 5.3 update added back in the Walkie Talkie feature that Apple pulled from the Apple Watch earlier this year for security reasons. Once you install watchOS 5.3 you will be able to use it again. 

The Walkie-Talkie feature allows you to quickly speak conversations in snippets to a contact. It's like have a Dick Tracy Walkie Talkie on your wrist and it's pretty cool. 

Instead of typing a text out or hoping dictation works, you can send a quick message and wait to hear a reply. It's simple and it's going to work out better than a call in many situations. 

You will need watchOS 5 to use this and so will your contacts that you want to talk with. So if your friends are all using it, you'll want to install watchOS 5 to use it on your wrist too. 

This isn't a walkie talkie feature that requires proximity. You need an LTE or WiFi connection to use this.

    The watchOS 5.3.1 update brings bug fixes and security fixes to the Apple Watch. With any watchOS update, there are good reasons to upgrade right away, but there are also some reasons not to upgrade on day one.
