Today, the NPE team is launching Kit, a watch-only app that enables voice messaging to your closest Messenger connections with one tap.
The watch’s compact screen may make viewing text and notifications easier, but it does little to simplify the response experience. More often than not, you will still have to pick up your phone to reply. We have so much computing power on our wrists, yet we’re still discovering more effective ways to use it.
What if there were a new experience that made communicating with your closest connections feel natural on the wrist?
This question inspired us to create Kit, a new way to keep in touch with your close Messenger connections from your Apple Watch. We believe that voice messaging is the easiest and fastest way to communicate from your wrist. With one tap to voice messaging, location sharing, and more, Kit empowers you to communicate easily and more frequently with the people that are closest to you.
Your most important connection in full view
We designed Kit to have the Messenger connection you choose to be at the center of it all. When you open Kit, the first thing you see is the profile photo of the person you are keeping in touch with.
All you need for messaging, one tap away
Kit makes keeping in contact from your watch easy. Everything you need to compose a message is just one tap away. Voice messaging is at the front and center as the quickest way to send a message. You can also rotate the watch crown to select from voice, location, emoji, text. Tap your preferred mode of messaging and you’ll be on your way.
A new voice-first product experiment
Kit is an experimental app from the NPE Team, working to innovate on the smartwatch communication experience. We hope users will find Kit engaging and useful, and hopefully communicate more frequently with their friends and family.
Kit will begin rolling out in Canada today on WatchOS.
