The Apple Watch’s Walkie Talkie feature is a fun way to communicate with friends and family, but it also allows contacts to ring your wearable without warning. Here’s how to turn it off.
Disable Walkie Talkie from the Control Center
The easiest way to turn off Walkie Talkie is directly from the Apple Watch’s Control Center. Access the menu by swiping up from the watch’s home screen. Next, find the Walkie Talkie icon. If the feature is currently turned on, the button will be bright yellow.
Tapping the icon will gray out the button and turn off Walkie Talkie.
Disable It from the Walkie Talkie App
Raise your wrist and press the wearable’s Digital Crown. Locate and tap the yellow Walkie Talkie icon from within the grid, scrolling in and out using the Digital Crown to make it easier to find the button.
