The app cannot be downloaded to the watch. However, with the notifications enabled, you can still interact and respond to messages using the watch.

I've followed the instructions on the link but no luck.
The Messenger icon doesn't appear on the app list on the phone. Also tried to add Snapchat without success. Can apps be added to the watch?

New watch and I cant get Messenger or Snapchat to appear on the applications screen of the phone. I've enabled notifications for both in the wearable app but I don't receive messages from either on my watch.
It shouldn't be this difficult, what am I missing?

@BeckyVera I don't believe that either platform has developed a Wear OS app. You can check with each of the development teams to see if they have a solution.

We can get SMS messages using either of the "messages" apps. With one selected we receive SMS to the phone but want to use "FB Messenger" as well. It's selected on the wearables app but doesn't display on the watch.
