How to Use the WW App

Here's how to find all the features included with your membership that make losing weight easier.

5 weight-loss apps in 1

Available for Apple and Android, our award-winning app lets you take our program with you wherever you go! Here’s how to (literally!) tap into every single benefit.

Your Homescreen

‏‎ ‎
‏‎ ‎
  • Track food (including non-starchy veggies!), activity, water, and sleep quickly and easily.

  • Use the Search bar to look up specific foods and get recipe recommendations with our "What's in Your Fridge?" feature.

  • Tap your check-in cards daily. Each card is designed to help you build healthy habits, one small but powerful step at a time. If you’re new to WW, this is where you’ll be guided along your journey!

  • Do a 5-Minute Coaching session or Breethe meditation to help you think more clearly and stress less.

  • See how many days you've stayed in the Healthy Eating Zone—these are the days you've tracked and stayed within your daily Points Budget.
