No doubt WhatsApp is one of the most popular messaging apps and it had users all over the globe. Gone are the days when we would send the normal text SMS which costs a lot. WhatsApp made the communication easier and it is a revolution in the industry. All you have to do it just add the contact number to start the conversation in WhatsApp. However, WhatsApp had one major disadvantage over traditional text SMS - sending WhatsApp messages without saving the mobile number. Don't worry, we have a solution to send WhatsApp messages without adding the contact details and we'll guide you through the process in this article.
In WhatsApp, you must save the contact on phone to send a message. The receiver will, however, receive the message even if your contact is not saved. But the problem is the sender (in this case YOU), has to add the contact first to start the conversation.
We found a solution to send WhatsApp message without adding the contact number. WhatsApp had an official API (Share intent) to open the chat screen of any registered mobile number on WhatsApp. Using this API, we developed an application called "WA Direct Chat". This is our second app on WhatsApp, first is the WA Delete for Everyone which is useful to see the deleted messages in WhatsApp.
WA Direct Chat is a simple mobile application to send WhatsApp messages without adding the contact number. This application is free to use and no hidden fees included.
