Just like iOS 10 does for your iPhone, watchOS 3 allows you to send a Tapback to an iMessage received on your Apple Watch. Tapbacks are emoji-like symbols that you can attach to messages in a conversation to respond when a text response isn't really called for. Tapbacks include heart, thumbs up, thumbs down, Ha ha, !!, or ?.
Adding a Tapback to a message on your watch is easy. Just follow this guide and you'll master it in no time.
How to use Tapbacks on your Apple Watch
- Open Messages from the Home screen of your Apple Watch.
- Select the conversation in which you wish to send a message.
Tap and hold the message bubble that you wish to Tapback.
In the Tapback menu, choose from Heart, thumbs up, thumbs down, Ha ha, !!, or ?
