If you have an Apple Watch, you’re probably used to doing things from you wrist that most people don’t even know is possible—such as checking text messages and emails, tweeting, and talking to Siri. And of course you know that you can make calls from your wrist too.
On the Apple Watch, calls are routed through your iPhone, so you do have to have your phone close by—on your desk, in the car, or in your pocket. Other than that, you can answer and take an entire call from your wrist, and you never have to reach for your cell—great for when you are driving and you left your phone on the back seat.
Answering a Call on the Apple Watch
Answering a call is easy. When the call comes in, you tap the green “answer” button and you will be connected. If you don’t want to talk, then you simply tap the red “deny” button and the caller will be directed to your voicemail instead.
The Apple Watch also gives you the option of answering the call on your iPhone instead, or sending a text message if you cannot talk. (Text messages are pre-populated options or you can use Siri.)
Conference Call Dialing on the Apple Watch
Just as you can answer a regular call on the Apple Watch, if you have downloaded the MobileDay app onto your phone, you can answer a conference call. Note: You do have to have the MobileDay app already installed on your cell in order to get Apple Watch compatibility.
- Download the Apple Watch version of MobileDay from the Apple Watch app on your cell phone.
- In settings, find the MobileDay app, and select so that it shows on your Apple Watch.
- You can now launch the MobileDay app from your wrist. When you open the app, you’ll see your upcoming meetings and the Running Late option for each call.
When you have a meeting in the near future, the MobileDay meeting notification will ping on your watch too. You can join calls in the same way that you would join a regular call from the watch.
