WhatsApp has safely made our chatting sessions easier. From something fun to something serious, it is the messaging we are most likely to need and get in touch with people. But, even after a decade’s presence, these are the people who have found their way into our contact list. Conversations with unknown people aren’t possible directly; we will still have to save your digits to start conversing with them.
But, when there’s a but, there’s away! There are a few workarounds that can help you easily go past this traditional method and send WhatsApp messages to people without saving their numbers. Interested? Read on to find out.
How to send WhatsApp messages without saving a number?
This is a legit workaround that comes from WhatsApp itself. This works both for Android and iOS users.
Step 1: Open any browser on your smartphone.
Step 2: Type in this URL: http://wa.me/xxxxxxxxxx, where the Xs stand for the phone number along with the country code. You can also type http://api.whatsapp.com/send?phone=xxxxxxxxxx in the address bar.
Step 3: Now, replace the Xs with the mobile number. So, if the number is, say, “0719147488,” you will be required to type “https://wa.me/263719147488.”
Step 4: Before you tap on the enter key, check the details you have entered and just hit the button.
Step 5: You will now be taken to another link, which will display the number you entered and an option to start sending a message in green.
Step 6: Once you have clicked on the option, you will be taken to WhatsApp’s web version where you will be able to start the conversation with anyone without the need for you to save the number. You can continue the conversation on your phone once it appears in the chat list.
