Apple Watch wearers can now respond to Google Hangouts messages thanks to a newly released update for the iOS app.

If you’re an Apple Watch owner, you can now chat with friends on Google Hangouts.

The social platform has finally added support for Apple’s wearable. You’ll receive notifications of messages as before, but now you can choose from a handful of pre-written responses to send a message back. If none of these suit you can use voice dictation to compose your own message.

Version 6.1.0 of the iOS app includes group names in notifications, the inclusion of contact names in Google Voice notifications, and some accessibility bug fixes.

You can download the update right now from iTunes if your Apple Watch doesn’t have you covered automatically.
