Team Chat

Team Chat enables you to message the other members of your team in a group setting. Talk about that latest recovery score, get the details on today’s workout or just chat with friends - this is your private place to chat.

Accessing Team Chat

For teams with chat enabled, you’ll now see a count of unread messages on your Teams list. After tapping into a team, you’ll see the Chat tab first, and can swipe from there to your team’s leaderboards as usual.

Weekly Highlights 

WHOOP recently rolled out a chat bot that shares positive highlights about your team's progress weekly on Monday mornings. Highlights are based on what your group is focused on - for example, we won't mention strain if your team is trying to improve sleep. 

Individual members of a group can mute team chat at any time, but if your team wants to disable team achievement notifications, please reach out Membership Services. 

Sending a Message

To send a message, type your message into the input box at the bottom of the screen and tap Send.  All the members of your team will receive a notification and be able to see your message.

Adding an Attachment

Want to share your workout details or a photo of where you are? Tap “Add” underneath the input box before sending a message. Once selected, your attachment will send with your message.

Replying to a Message

Disabling Chat

If you're the admin of a team, and you want to turn off chat: 

  1. Tap the Options menu in the top right corner. 
  2. Selection Manage teams.
  3. Turn off the Chat toggle.


Share how you feel about a message with reactions! Add a reaction by long-pressing on a message and tapping the reaction you want to add. Reactions can be removed the same way, or by tapping on the reaction count underneath the message.
