Samsung Galaxy Watch Gets Walkie-Talkie App Similar to Apple Watch Feature

Three years after Apple released walkie-talkie functionality for the Apple Watch, Samsung has released a similar app for the Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic.

Samsung released the app via the Google Play Store, which was first spotted by XDA Developers. Similar to Apple's own Apple Watch app, Samsung says its walkie-talkie app allows users to "have instant conversations, just like if they were using a walkie-talkie." While the Apple Watch only allows two people to join in on a conversation, Samsung's iteration allows for "two or more users."

Samsung only lists the Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic as compatible with the new app. Screenshots of the app on the Play Store reveal a similar interface to Apple's walkie-talkie, featuring a large button to tap and hold to talk.

These watches just looks sooo good.?
They do. I have the 2019 46mm Galaxy, still love it. I love the bulky watches and this is just nice to me. Pairs with the iPhone but has limitations. Plus a lot of custom accessories (like AW) with this. Bezel, all types of bands, downloadable watch faces.

Always following the leader ?‍♂️?
I always wonder about the motivation of such trolling. Is it the satisfaction you get when others of the same tribe cheer in support? I have a secret for you, all companies copy from each other, it's part of the industry.

I shut if off when I saw that you couldn't mute it initially - and actually I've left it off since that day.
