watchos5 walkie talkie

In addition to all the news regarding stability, reliability and other improvements implemented in the beta version of watchOS 5.1.2, authorized developers have found another interesting change in the app Walkie-talkie.

In this case, as the title of the news says, it is about the possibility of having the new Walkie-Talkie function a little more accessible and that is why it will now be available in the control center of our watch. This novelty will be great for all those who use it since it allows us to activate or deactivate the option much faster and better.

One push to activate or deactivate it from the control center

With the arrival of this "direct access", users will now be able to control the tool much better, and when we have it active at any time we can receive a notification and this can be a problem in some cases, so most people does not use it because of the "complicated" access to activate or deactivate it in a timely and fast way. Now with this new option in watchOS 5.1.2 we will have faster access and therefore it is expected that it will be used a little more.

When the icon is in yellow color It will be when we are in available mode ready to send or receive messages at the moment, by clicking on this the color will change to gray and it means that the service is down. Now with this change it is no longer necessary to go to the clock settings, just click on the button to change our availability.
