WhatsApp typically requires you to have a contact saved in your phone’s address book to initiate a chat. However, there is a workaround that allows you to start a WhatsApp chat with an unknown number without saving it as a contact. You can do this by using a feature called “Click to Chat.” Here’s how:
Open Your Web Browser:
- Open web browser on your mobile device or computer.
Visit the WhatsApp Click to Chat Link:
- In the address bar, type the following URL, replacing “phonenumber” with the actual phone number you want to message, including the country code:
- Copy code
- For example, if the phone number is from the United States, you should use the format: https://wa.me/1xxxxxxxxxx (replace “1xxxxxxxxxx” with the actual phone number).
Open the Link:
- Press “Enter” to open the link.
Start a Chat:
- You’ll be directed to WhatsApp, and you’ll see a chat window with the phone number you entered. You can now start a chat with that number.
Send a Message:
- Type your message in the chat and hit the send button to send your message.
Please note that while this method allows you to initiate a chat with an unknown number without saving it as a contact, it doesn’t save the contact in your phone’s address book. If you want to continue the conversation later or have the number saved, you may need to manually save it as a contact in your device’s contacts app.
Additionally, ensure that you have WhatsApp installed and set up on your device for this method to work.
