WhatsApp is a popular messaging app and is used by millions of users to communicate with friends and family members. There are times when you need to contact an unknown person on WhatsApp for some work. So, for this, you usually need to save the phone number in order to drop a message on WhatsApp.
This could be annoying if you just need to reach out to any service on WhatsApp for a little work and you can’t do that without saving the phone number. Additionally, saving an unknown person’s number also means that the individual will be able to see your status and profile picture as well. Some of the privacy-conscious users might not be comfortable with this.
While the messaging app offers a ton of features, it still lacks a few useful features. One of them is the ability to (directly) send messages on WhatsApp to anyone without saving the phone number. But, you don’t have to worry about that as there is a way to send messages to an unknown person or service without saving the phone number. There is no direct way to do this and you will have to go through some extra steps. Keep reading to know more about it.
How to send messages on WhatsApp without saving a phone number
The process is pretty simple and it takes less than 1 minute to initiate a chat with an unsaved contact. There is an official shortcut link that WhatsApp offers to users, which you might not be aware of. Follow the below-written steps to know the process.
Step 1: You first need to open any browser on your smartphone and type out the address “https://wa.me/phonenumber. “
Note: Do not just copy-paste this URL address. You first need to type your mobile number in place of “phone number” in the URL. Once you add your number, the URL should look like this: “https://wa.me/+39123456789”
Step 2: You will now see a green box, which says “Continue to Chat.“ Just tap on it and you will be redirected to your WhatsApp account. All this might sound too much work, but it takes less than 1 minute.
