Can You Get Snapchat on Apple Watch?

You can’t install Snapchat on the Apple Watch because Snapchat requires a camera to work, which Apple Watch doesn’t have.

However, you can use Snapchat on the Apple Watch by using a workaround:

  1. Launch Siri on your Apple Watch
  2. Say “Google Search
  3. Wait for Ciri to ask you what you want to search for
  4. Reply “
  5. Tap the “Open Page” button
  6. Type in “Snapchat login
  7. Select the first Snapchat link
  8. Enter your credentials

This way, you’ll be able to use Snapchat on your Apple Watch with most of its functions. You won’t be able to reply to snaps and messages on your Apple Watch, though.

However, you can receive notifications from Snapchat on your Apple Watch. But that’s why you have a phone.

Why Would You Use Snapchat on Apple Watch?

Convenience, that’s why. No one “needs” Apple Watches, just like we can make do with analog phones instead of smartphones.

But we use smartphones (and Apple Watches) because they offer comfort, convenience, and a host of features that make our lives easier.

Using Snapchat on Apple Watch might not be the most comfortable thing in the world, but for some people, it’s more convenient.

Here are a couple of reasons why you might want to use Snapchat on the Apple Watch:

  1. Read notifications fast
  2. See your friend’s snaps faster
  3. Scroll through the Snapchat feed faster

It doesn’t seem like much, but for people with Apple Watches, it’s much faster to use their watch than to pull out their phones.

How Can You Use Snapchat on Apple Watch?

You might wonder what you can do with Snapchat on an Apple Watch. Here are some of the things you can do:

  1. Check your friends’ stories
  2. Read your friends’ messages and see the snaps they send
  3. Search for people’s profiles on the app
  4. Use the Snap Map feature and find out where your friends are at

You can’t reply to Snapchat messages, though. This is because Snapchat doesn’t support the watchOS so some features won’t be available.

You can use your Apple Watch and iPhone to take photos with your watch. It’s a little tricky, but you can pull it off.


So, there you have it. While you can’t install Snapchat on the Apple Watch, you can still use the app through Google.

You can use the Snapchat app through their official website! Tell Siri you want to do a Google search, and look for “Snapchat login“. Enter your credentials, and that’s it.
