2 Easiest ways to message a number on WhatsApp without adding them as a contact first

If you are familiar with WhatsApp, you’ll discover that you can’t chat with anyone that is not saved in your phone contact list.

This can be somewhat annoying that in order to message someone, you always have to first add that person in your address book, but there are so many occasions where you just want to communicate with someone for a couple messages and nothing else.

The only exception is if you receive a contact’s number from someone else inside a WhatsApp chat. However, there are a few ways to bypass this limitation which I’m going to show you below;

How to send a WhatsApp Message without Saving the Contacts

>>Using WhatsApp’s own wa.me links

1.Open your smartphone browser and type the following link https://wa.me/phonenumber

2. Replace the last part with the full number, with the country and region code, but without any + or or () or 00.

for example, if you want to chat with the number +23480222200220 in NG, you would go to the URL: https://wa.me/23480222200220.
