Call and Message Continuity now enabled for non-LTE Samsung Galaxy Watch

Samsung has a Call & Message Continuity feature which allows the users to answer calls and text messages directly from compatible Galaxy Tab while the phone is occupied somewhere else.

This feature is currently limited to a subset of Samsung devices i.e. Australian variants Galaxy Tab S6, Tab S4 (SM-T835), Galaxy Watch Active2, Note10, Note10+/5G, S10e, S10/10+, S10+ 5G, Note9, S9/9+, A70, and A90 5G.

Moreover, Galaxy devices like the Tab S5e and Tab S4 (SM-T830) can also use this service.

But, according to a recent development, this Call and Message Continuity feature has now been enabled for non-LTE Samsung Galaxy Watch as well.

Going by previous reports, the last update with build DSL1 for the Galaxy Watch (non-LTE) variant, brought One UI 1.5 and plenty of Watch Active2 features.

And going by user reports, it looks like non-LTE Galaxy Watch can now use the Call & Message Continuity feature with this update, although the changelog doesn’t mention it.

Couldn’t find any posts about this, so thought I’d post. Turned off wifi and bluetooth on my phone and tried calling someone from my watch (Galaxy Watch, non-LTE).
I can now call with just my watch, without my phone, so long as I have wifi. This is a huge plus for me, since I’m easily distracted by my phone. I can now head to the gym with just my watch!
EDIT: OneUI 2 on my S9, not on the watch. Watch is on 1.5.

galaxy watch update CMC

Thanks for the input. Samsung backported a bunch of Galaxy Watch Active2 features in this firmware, and looks like CMC is also a part of it.
