How to Set Default “Send as Text” Option on Apple Watch to Send Text Message

"Send as Text" prompt appears when you try to send a message from your Apple Watch. You can get rid of by following the instructions we have given.

Apple Watch facilitates us with an option to send a message right from our wrist. It’s surely handy, but the problem is that every time it prompts us whether to send a message as voice or text. Thankfully, there’s a default selection available to send a message as Text.

This little option is pretty useful, as most of the times we would be using text message and not the voice message. If you too are frustrated with always annoying prompts, then you should check the instructions mentioned below, and set it once it for all. Of course, you can easily change it anytime you wish to.
