    i got a message earlier which gave me the options to either give a thumbs up mute or dismiss. Is this new?

    I noticed that it can send the thumbs up now too! It's getting better.

    This is simply iOS Interactive Notifications (they were introduced in iOS8... http://www.imore.com/interactive-notifications-ios-8-explained ).

    The Watch will display any Interactive Notifications... Even those that don't have Apple Watch Apps. "Acting" on them (i.e. Making a selection) simply carries out that action on your phone.

    I'm fairly certain this was NOT how the watch behaved until a recent change in FB Messenger. There was never an option to do anything but look at the message, now you can at least send a thumbs up.

    I noticed the change on Friday evening. Finally getting closer to making the watch even more useful!!!

    There was no Watch update on Friday.

    More likely is that Facebook Messenger received and update that added Interactive Notifications.
