iOS Text Reply Expands to More Users, Actionable Emails Coming Next

Pebble watches are still the only non-Apple wearables that can reply to received iOS Messages. It’s part of the work we do to deliver a rich, fully-featured integration with iPhone that keeps getting better. From being able to filter which apps send notifications to your wrist to integrating Pebble Health with Apple’s HealthKit, making the Pebble iOS experience the best it can be is how we roll.

Actionable notifications like Pebble replies to texts and emails are a bit easier to implement for Android users, thanks to that operating system’s more open philosophy, but we’re always hard at work to make the Pebble experience on both mobile platforms as consistent as possible. The new features available for iOS Pebble users today have been available to Android users for some time now.
