Facebook has just launched a new Facebook Messenger application for the Apple Watch, called Kit ( Keep in Touch). However, it is important to note that this is not a full version of Messenger, its main purpose is to keep in touch with your closest friends and family.
Since this is an application still in the experimental stage, there is no way to confirm whether it will end up being launched for all users. For now, it will be available to a limited group and the only way to find out if you have access to it is through a quick search on the App Store.
How the new Facebook Messenger application on Apple Watch will work
Apparently, the Kit will work very similar to iMessage, allowing you to share emoji, voice messages, real-time location and also text messages. As with iMessage, you will not have an on-screen keyboard at your disposal, instead you will need to use voice commands to “write” your messages.
The entire application interface was created with the small dimensions of the Apple Watch screen in mind, being very easy to navigate and extremely intuitive. All buttons have dimensions that make all interaction simple and absent accidental touches.
To send a new message, you just need to browse a list that presents you with the most user contacts, where you will be able to see your profile picture and name.
This is the first application of the NPE Team (Facebook research and development team) for the Apple Watch. Unfortunately, the applications developed by this team are already famous for many times not reaching the general public. Therefore, it is difficult to say for now whether the “Kit” will actually be launched as an application, or whether it will be used to integrate the Facebook Messenger offer itself.
