    Hey peeps. I just updated to iOS 12.0.1 and my mom did too. We also just updated or watches to watch os5. We are trying to use the Walkie Talkie app, but it doesn’t seem to be working. I’ve invited her and she’s invited me, but we haven’t been added to each other’s Walkie Talkie. What do we need to do now? Or maybe there’s a bug?

    Make sure both of you have set up your Apple ID for FaceTime. Some people only list their phone number which can present a problem...

    It hasn’t worked the best, I imagine they’re still trying to work the kinks out of the app. Keep trying, it took my wife and I a few tries to get it working.

    Works fine for my wife and I.
    Make sure FaceTime is enabled on your devices.

    I turned it off because I got sick of seeing the stupid yellow dot flash on and off.

    Worked perfectly the one time my BFF (2000 miles away) and I used it. Then I turned it off. I hate talking on the phone; I’m not going to talk on the walkie talkie.

    But yes, it was easy to set up and use, and sounded crystal clear. It’s a cute function, and if I were less of a curmudgeon, I might actually keep it on. :p

    My husband and I use it all the time. It’s really convenient, now I don’t have to yell all over the house for him. Also it’s nice when one of us is out and needs any immediate answer, such as when you’re in the grocery store and need to know if you need to pick up something. I actually find it more convenient than texting.

    He on the other hand calls it the "husband tracker" so now I can ask him/bother him wherever he is all the time. ;)
