    Handling text messages

    Arrow left SmartWatch 3 SWR50 support overview

    When a text message comes in on your phone or tablet, you can immediately read the message on your SmartWatch 3 in the form of a card. You can also use your SmartWatch 3 to send text messages to contacts that are saved on your phone or tablet.

    To send a text message

    1. Make sure that the home screen is active on your SmartWatch 3.
    2. Say "OK Google". If the command is recognised, the "Speak now" screen opens.
    3. Say "Send a text" and the name of a contact that is saved to your phone or tablet, then say the text that you want to send.
    4. Alternatively, you can say something like "Text Jack I'm ready" or "Send Jane a message that I'm back". In both cases, the message gets sent automatically.
