WhatsApp: send a message to an unsaved number – how it works

One-off WhatsApp messages, such as with an eBay contact or similar, can also be sent without having to save the number. We show how.

We all know that: A short chat after an eBay purchase or some other fleeting contact – each time you have to save the number in the contacts, which you are guaranteed to forget to delete afterwards. This is how the data garbage mountain grows. However, WhatsApp offers the possibility to send messages to numbers that you have not saved.

However, this is only possible with a little trick via the WhatsApp Desktop Client:

  1. Surf to the following address:
    https://api.whatsapp.com/send?phone=Telefonnummer
  2. Instead of the word «telephone number», enter that. You start with the country code, in Switzerland with 41 and the 7, with which Swiss mobile numbers begin. So the URL should look like this:
    https://api.whatsapp.com/send?phone=41712345678
  3. After that, click Go to Chat and start the conversation.
  4. As soon as the first message is sent, the conversation will appear as normal in WhatsApp and you can continue chatting there as usual.

Notice: Since this is a trick for the WhatsApp desktop client, the desktop client must first be installed.
