Facebook for Apple Watch Series 4!
How to Use Your Apple Watch to Access Facebook
Although your Apple Watch lacks a Safari browser, the WebKit engine introduced in watchOS 5 allows you to open a complete web page by tapping a connection in an email or text message. Although you won’t be able to view YouTube videos on these web pages because they lack the versatility of your iPhone or laptop, you will be able to consume most other Facebook material. In fact, Facebook’s notifications are automatically formatted for the Apple Watch’s screen, so you’ll be shocked at how simple it is to read them.

Make a letter to yourself in an email. Put the following on a separate line in the email’s body:
- Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/)
- Send the email message to an account you’ve built in the iPhone’s Mail app. You can now read your email message on your Apple Watch.
- Open the Mail app on your Apple Watch. Swipe down on the computer to force the Mail client to download new messages when you open the inbox.
- Tap the Facebook link when the email appears on your Apple Watch.
- Log in to your Facebook account once it has loaded. You should only have to log in once because the Apple Watch remembers your login credentials.
If you have Facebook’s two-factor authentication turned on, you might be asked to enter a code that Facebook sends to one of your devices.
How do I label the Facebook email as spam?
Why did you send an email instead of a text message? A text message sent to yourself would suffice, but the benefit of an email message is the opportunity to label it as spam. This makes it easier to locate the email in the future by using your Apple Watch to browse Facebook. Under Gmail, Yahoo!, and other inboxes, flagged messages appear as a separate mailbox.
Hold your finger on the Apple Watch monitor while the email message with the Facebook link is shown to flag it (or by scrolling down and selecting Flag in later versions of watchOS). The email message will appear in the Flagged inbox for easy future reference after you tap Flag in the pop-up menu. This trick should work with most other websites as well, but advanced features like streaming video might not, so no Netflix streaming to your watch for the time being.
Facebook Messenger on Apple Watch: How to Use It
If chatting with friends is your primary concern, you won’t need a workaround to use Facebook Messenger on your Apple Watch. Simply download the Messenger program. If you have Facebook Messenger on your iPhone, you should be able to use it on your Apple Watch as well. It is likely, however, that it is not set to show on your watch.
- On your iPhone, open the Watch app. (To do this quickly, open spotlight search and type in “watch.”)
- Tap the My Watch button at the bottom of the screen and scroll down until you enter the “Installed On Apple Watch” section to see if Messenger is already installed.
- Tap Messenger if it appears in the list to confirm that Display App on Apple Watch is activated.
- Tap Install next to the Messenger app in the “Available Apps” section to install it on the Apple Watch.
If the app isn’t mentioned in either section, you’ll need to add it to your Apple Watch. At the bottom of the screen, tap the Search button and type “Messenger” into the search box. (To find Messenger in later versions of watchOS, go to Discover > Explore Watch Apps and look for it.)
