How to send WhatsApp messages without adding contacts to the calendar with WhatsApp Web in Windows 10 and macOS

22 mayo, 2021

One of the big problems with WhatsApp is that, to start a conversation with a person, it is necessary that we have it saved in our contact listEither on iOS or Android. However, this is solved with a trick provided by WhatsApp itself, which is to enter the following address in the browser and modify it according to the number we need to contact: “https://api.whatsapp.com/send?phone=34666666666 “.

A) Yes, If we want to send a message to a number in Spain, 666666666, we would leave the 34 that goes before, and we would complete the rest with the chosen number. It’s convenient and works on both mobile and desktop, but remembering the address can be tricky. Therefore, we are going to leave you another way that can help you improve the process in general.

“Wa.me” the most direct way to send the message

The way we have counted above always works, but as we said, it has the problem that we have to save the address because it is normal for us to remember it by heart. For this reason, WhatsApp thought of an easier one, and sending messages without adding contacts to the phonebook is now as simple as writing the number after this address: http://wa.me/.

Thus, to send a message to the number 666666666, Spanish, we would have to enter “http://wa.me/34666666666“in the address bar of our browser, mobile or desktop. In our case, having WhatsApp Desktop installed, we open the desktop application, and in front of the method” https://api.whatsapp.com/send? phone = 34666666666 “, the one in wa.me does not allow you to start a conversation on WhatsApp Web. That is, either we use WhatsApp Desktop or we will have to go to the smartphone.

These are the differences between using WhatsApp Web or the WhatsApp desktop application

In this way, our schedule will be much cleaner., by not having to add dozens of contacts for a single contact. If we are interested in something like this for the iPhone, it is also possible with the automation of Shortcuts. You will only have to obtain this shortcut, which when used will ask us for the number to contact. Et voilá.
