Kik does not have an AW version, but I would like get get kik notifications on my watch. The notifications occurred once, but I can't get it to work again. Anyone getting kik notifications on the watch? If so, how do I set it up? Thanks.
They work on my watch, but the problem with Kik notifications is that they only include the nickname of the person sending the message plus a couple of words, so they are for the most part useless anyway.
Yes, that's the case for all notifications, if they don't show on the phone you wont see them on the watch either. When things are working properly though and you are actually wearing the watch then the notifications will come to the watch, but they wont wake the phone and show there. When you aren't wearing the watch the watch notifications stop and transfer to the phone instead.
That's the problem with Kik though, you only get the first couple of words of the message and that's it, so you will still need to pick up the phone to read the whole message. Hopefully they will increase the notification size in future then we can read the whole message in the notification on our watches.
Okay thanks. When I enabled the banner notification for kik on my phone, I got notification on my watch. It's happened at least once so far anyway. If it keeps working that will save me from picking up the phone so much throughout the day. Thanks for your help.
To be honest with you I can't remember, I'm fairly certain it does, all notifications do, it's not something the Kik developer needs to provide for, it's iOS 8 itself that does it by default for all notifications. Send me a message as a test, my username on there is the same as here.
