WhatsApp is one of the most used messaging apps in the world. It allows users to communicate in a simple and easy way by connecting with the address book of any device.
However, it can be a bit time-consuming and annoying that to send a message to anyone, you must first add that person’s phone number in your contacts list. There are many instances you people want to add certain contacts in their device because they might only need to communicate with that person once.
This is the reason numerous third-party apps address this simple task; it should not be difficult to send messages via WhatsApp, though, without saving the phone number. The issue is that these third-party apps can impact the security and performance of your smartphone, and might also not be compatible with particular operating systems.
To address this issue, here is a guideline that helps you send messages via WhatsApp without adding a certain contact on your device. The great thing here is that this technique doesn’t need you to install third-party apps, and it operates on both Android and iOS OS.
How to Send a WhatsApp Message Without Saving the Phone Number
This method can seem a bit confusing at first, or ever too difficult for those who are not exactly tech-savvy people. However, once you follow the process for the first time, the second one will look simpler.
• Launch a web browser on your device
• Type this link in the search bar: ‘https://api.whatsapp.com/send?phone=XXXXXXXXXXX’ – instead of Xs, type the number of the person you want to contact, including the country code, but without the ‘+’ key (for instance, if the number is an American one, it should look similar to this link: ‘https://api.whatsapp.com/send?phone=19175550123’)
• Press ‘Enter’ and ‘Send Message’ when the WhatsApp window that will appear will ask
• You will be redirected to WhatsApp, and the ‘Start Chatting’ window will appear, enabling you to contact that person
This guideline should help you send messages to any contact without saving their phone number in your contacts list.
