WatchOS 5 Adds Automatic Workout Detection, Walkie-Talkie, and More

Jordan Golson, MacRumors:

A new Walkie-Talkie app lets users send push-to-talk messages (like an old-school Nextel phone) to each other from watch-to-watch, and a new Podcasts app has been added as well. […]

If the walkie talkie feature sounds familiar, that’s because it was included among the original Apple Watch marketing materials in 2014 before being pulled just before the product was released in spring 2015. Its initial omission was curious; it’s quite nice to see it back.
