Despite the fact that WhatsApp has been around for almost 10 years, the messaging programme still only allows us to communicate with our connections. If you wish to contact someone new, you must first add them to your phone’s contact list, wait for WhatsApp to sync so that their name appears in the app, and then initiate a chat with them. This normally takes a few minutes, but if the contact doesn’t sync quickly, it can take hours.
There are a few ways you may use to get around this stupid restriction and quickly talk with a new contact on Whatsapp directly by not adding as a contact on your phonebook. One of them is given by WhatsApp, but for some reason it is not available within the app. If you’re unfamiliar with these, We’ll discuss three of the most straightforward approaches below.
WhatsApp’s own wa.me links
There is an official way to reach an unsaved number on WhatsApp, but it is not within the app. You can start a chat with any number by opening Chrome, Firefox, or the Samsung browser and visiting to the web URL https://wa.me/phonenumber, as stated in this FAQ. Replace the last part of the number with the whole number, including the country and region code, but without any +, -, (), or 00.
To make things go faster, use an app
If the preceding procedure appears to be too complicated or slow for you, you can utilise an app to expedite the process. Several Android apps make use of wa.me links in a non-user-facing method, which means you don’t have to write a URL or go through a web browser first. Simply enter the phone number, of the contact press a button, and you’ll be brought to a new WhatsApp chat.
Click to Chat is the smallest of these apps (113 KB), has no advertisements, and requires no permissions. Easy Message is another wonderful option that is ad-free and requires few permissions.
App Actions and Text Selection
Although the third approach is the least well-known of the three, it is the simplest, fastest, and most well-integrated. You may simply choose the corresponding text and check the suggested actions whenever you have a phone number in any app. Call, Cut, Copy, and Paste are always available, but if you hit the overflow button (three dots), you may see more options, such as sending a WhatsApp message to any number without adding as contact. Simply choose that option, and the discussion will begin.
