Smartwatches have seamlessly integrated into our daily lives by providing quick access to essential functionalities. If you’ve recently bought the Google Pixel Watch 2 and are eager to harness its full potential, one key feature you’ll want to enable is the ability to receive text messages directly on your wrist. In this guide, I’ll walk you through the steps of setting up your Google Pixel Watch 2 to receive and reply to text messages with ease.

Set up your Google Pixel Watch 2 to receive messages

First and foremost, it’s crucial to understand that there are different considerations based on whether your smartwatch is the LTE version or the Bluetooth/Wi-Fi version. The LTE version offers the added advantage of independently sending and receiving text messages and making phone calls without relying on your phone. On the other hand, the Bluetooth/Wi-Fi version requires a connection and access to your phone for text messaging.

To receive text messages on your Pixel Watch 2 via Bluetooth, follow these simple steps:

  1. Begin by ensuring that Bluetooth is turned on your phone. Subsequently, pair your phone with your Google Pixel Watch 2.
  2. On the home screen of your Google Pixel Watch 2, swipe down to reveal the quick settings menu. From there, tap on ‘Settings’ to access the configuration options.
  3. Scroll down within the Settings menu until you find the ‘Notifications’ section. Confirm that notifications are activated on your smartwatch.
  4. Within the Notifications menu, locate and tap on ‘App Notifications.’
  5. Toggle notifications ‘on’ for your messaging app.

Once these steps are completed, your Pixel Watch 2 is ready to receive text messages. When a text message arrives on your phone, a corresponding notification will appear on your smartwatch. A simple tap on the message notification allows you to read the message directly on your wrist and respond promptly.
