Apple announced today that Apple Pay Cash is now available for iOS 11.2 users, but to get the full effect of the new feature, the Apple Watch has to get in on the fun as well.
To do that, Apple has released watchOS 4.2 to the public. This is the wide release, following weeks of developer beta seeds, and it is available now to download and install. The software update is minor in total, with Apple focusing on fixing bugs behind-the-scenes, as well as improving overall performance.
To update, the Apple Watch must be connected to the charger, have at least 50 percent battery life, and be within range of the iPhone.
The biggest part of the new software is support for Apple Pay Cash, which will allow Apple device users running the appropriate software to quickly send cash to another person.

Apple Pay Cash also works with Siri, so sending money can be handled with just your voice, too.
watchOS 4.2 is available now if you want to install it on day one.
