As long as you’re connected to Wi-Fi or using cellular data, you can connect instantly no matter where you are in the world.

What’s more, Walkie-Talkie Mode is available on devices running WatchOS 5 or later, so you don’t need the latest Apple Watch Ultra 2 or Apple Watch Series 9 to access the feature. This feature is available on all but the first Apple Watch.
