10 Line2 Features You Can Enjoy on Your Apple Watch
What features are available to Line2 users who now own (or are patiently awaiting the arrival of) an Apple Watch? As mentioned previously, Line2 for Apple Watch (and many, many other apps) are a bit different, and may delight with the new features that can be experienced on the Watch. So, depending on the product or service, you may be in for a surprise once you upgrade whatever respective app onto your Watch.
This makes sense, of course. The Watch is smaller and, more importantly, far newer than the iPhone so there’s different technology that goes into what can be done on a tiny screen and when there’s a whole new device that comes into play.
With that being said, what can users expect from Line2 for Apple Watch? Here’s a breakdown of 10 key features:
- Text messaging through voice dictation. While we added this feature for both the iPhone and the Watch, the creation of Line2 for Apple Watch was what drove us to create the feature. Text messages can be sent through voice dictation on the Watch. Simply hold the Watch up to your mouth, say what you want to be contained in the text, and the message is translated onto the Watch to be sent.
- Text messaging through canned responses. For those in a meeting or who are unable to speak at the moment they receive a text, Line2 also offers a prepackaged set of canned responses that users can use, including: “Busy. Talk later?” “Be there in 10,” “Ok, thanks.” and, of course: “Coffee?”
- Composing and responding to existing text messages. Alongside the two ways that users are able to craft text messages, users can also choose to continue any existing text message threads and conversations without needing to have been texted first by anyone.
- Message history. Users can access their message history which includes every conversation had on Line2 from any devices, not just from those on the Apple Watch.
- Call notifications. Call notifications will be sent to the Watch so that one can be notified when they are getting a call from someone. They’ll also be able to see who is calling them.
- Silencing a call or directing it to voicemail. Should one receive a Line2 call on the Watch during an important meeting — or just if you don’t feel like answering it — you can either silence it or decline the call, thereby routing it to your voicemail.
- Forward all calls and SMS messages. Your Line2 settings on the Watch will also allow for you to forward all your calls and SMS messages, exactly like the Line2 app for your iPhone (and other devices) does.
- Favorite contacts. Your favorite contacts on iPhone will automatically be featured as your Line2 contacts on the Apple Watch. Of course, you have the option of starting a text message with virtually anyone.
- Do not disturb. Line2’s ‘do not disturb’ function is also available, meaning that you have the option to turn off all notifications from your Watch. Note that if you already have this function turned on through your iPhone, this default setting applies on the Watch as well.
- Line2 on the Apple Watch is live. The Watch is only one of many devices that Line2 functions on. This means that it’s also live — you can be logged on to Line2 through simultaneous devices (including your tablet, computer, and smartphone) and be synced up. A message sent on your Watch, for example, will show up in your iPad’s message history (when or if you’re logged in on there.)
