Facebook owned social network WhatsApp is the most popular social network on earth. WhatsApp is free, allows it users to send or share photos, messages, videos, contacts encrypted, make audio and video calls to anyone anywhere in the world. WhatsApp’s encrypted messaging gives it an edge over parent company Facebook.
Amid all these, there are several things WhatsApp needs to implement into their platform to make it better. Due to the absence of some functionality in the official WhatsApp app, different app developers have come up with different mods of WhatsApp which has more features than the official WhatsApp. Example of WhatsApp’s modded versions include YoWhatsApp, GBWhatsApp, etc.
One of WhatsApp’s annoying issues is that the Facebook owned social network doesn’t give users the room to start a chat without saving the persons contact. To start a chat from your end, you must have saved the persons contact on your device. However, there are some contacts that you might not necessary need on your phone.. you just need to message them at that moment alone.
Well, do not worry about that because i will be discussing how to message anyone on WhatsApp without the need to save the persons contact. We will be looking at three methods.
WhatsApp Wa.me links:
WhatsApp’s Click to Chat feature allows users of the social platform to begin a chat with someone without having their phone number saved in the person’s address book.
To chat with someone, go to your web browser and type https://wa.me/country code and phone number.
Lets say that you want to chat with 345678900 contact and the country code is +234 which makes the phone number as +12345678900, simple open your web browser and type it which should appear this way; https://wa.me/12345678900.
Note that you won’t make use of the + in the country code of that phone number. This will only work if that phone number has been registered on WhatsApp.
If the above method is long for you, there are apps that will save you the stress of visiting a web browser to type the link only to be redirected to WhatsApp. For the app method, the user will just have to type the WhatsApp number in the app, click the open chat button and then be taken to a newly created chat with that contact on WhatsApp.
Click here to download Click to Chat APK app to get started.
This method is the easiest but less known and will probably not work for many. That’s not to say that your Android device is slow or has low specs.
The text selection method only requires you to highlight the number in which you want to chat with. That is, after you must have typed the number. When you high light the number, you will see options for you to Call, Cut, Copy and paste. However, if you tap the overflow button (three dots), you will see more options that enables you to message on WhatsApp and other social network. Click on WhatsApp to start a chat with that contact.
Just as I said earlier, this method will not work for many because its only available for Android 9 and Q users who are using Android stock devices.
