WhatsApp update adds support for Android Wear

An update to the WhatsApp messaging app, brings support for Android Wear. The latter is the version of Android made for wearable devices, like a smartwatch for example. The update is not available from the Google Play Store, and must be obtained directly from a WhatsApp website, which you can reach by clicking on the sourcelink.

The features include stacked notifications, and message previews. You can respond to messages by voice, or by using already-made responses saying "Yes", "No", "HaHa" and "LOL".

There are some glitches to the update, but if you do own the LG G Watch or the Samsung Gear Live, you might want to give it a shot.
