Do you know, you can send WhatsApp messages without adding contacts? Yes, this is true. WhatsApp is among the most popular instant messaging apps. Through time, WhatsApp has altered the standard SMS using its feature-rich and robust layout. It makes communicating as straightforward as adding the contact details of anybody on the planet and voila, that is it. But it may be somewhat annoying to be able to identify someone; you always have to add that individual on your address book; however, there are many situations where you only wish to send a message on WhatsApp without adding a contact.
WhatsApp allows you to share texts, images, videos, etc. with your contacts which are using this application. When you add a contact in your phone book, WhatsApp automatically detects that and shows in the contact list. This is a usually an issue when you have to add someone who you do not know to your contacts list, simply to text them. From time to time, we might not know the name of the individual who we have added, as an example, the plumber, delivery agent, electrician, etc.

First two methods are only available for Android devices, but the third one works on both Android and iPhone. Before the procedure, don’t forget to check how to enable WhatsApp payment feature.

Send WhatsApp Message to Unsaved Number using third-party Apps
There is a way to use WhatsApp without phone number or sim card. The procedure to send WhatsApp messages without adding contact is only available for Android devices. If you have an iPhone, then you can jump to the next procedure. In this method, we are going to use a third-party app which allows you send a message on WhatsApp without adding contact.
The name of the app is Click2Chat. This is a one-click solution to send WhatsApp messages to non-contact. It supports numbers from almost all countries, including India. Click2chat is capable of sending scheduled messages and can generate automatic joke.
The best thing about this app is the inbuilt WhatsApp media cleaner. You can select the type of media files to clean it and save your phone’s internal memory. Well, let’s come to the procedure.
1. Once downloaded the app, just open it. You’ll get everything in front of the home screen.
2. At first, select the country code from the drop-down menu and type the mobile number which you want to send a message. After that, simply tap on “Send Now” button, which will immediately take you to the WhatsApp, where you’ll be able to hit the send button. Or, you can select the “Send Later” option to schedule the time of sending. That’s it.
There is a Plus button below the message box which allows you to generate jokes for your message. You can also tap on the Click2Translate button to change the message language. This is really a cool feature. There is another app named WhatsDirect, also can be used to send WhatsApp message without adding contact.
How to WhatsApp without saving number on iPhone
If you are looking for how to send a WhatsApp message without saving the contact in your iPhone, then here is the solution. This procedure also works on Android and WhatsApp web as well.

3. Suppose, the receiver is an Indian and his number is +91 9876543210, then the format would be
[su_note note_color=”#ffffe3″ text_color=”#000000″]https://api.whatsapp.com/send?phone=919876543210[/su_note]
4. A WhatsApp window will open asking if you want to send a message to that phone number. Just tap on the “MESSAGE” button.
5. You will instantly be redirected to WhatsApp app to start the conversation. Just type your message and send it to that person.
You can also use this URL to send a pre-filled message to a new number. Just follow the below format.
[su_note note_color=”#ffffe3″ text_color=”#000000″]https://api.whatsapp.com/send?phone=XXXXXXXXXXX&text=URLencodedtext[/su_note]
Replace the X with a phone number and in the place of URLencoded text, give your URL-encoded message. Keep in mind that you need to use %20 for space and %3F for the question mark. Follow the below example.
[su_note note_color=”#ffffe3″ text_color=”#000000″]https://api.whatsapp.com/send?phone=919876543210&text=How%20are%20you%3F[/su_note]

If you are using WhatsApp web on your computer, you can also use this method or can use the below URL to send a message without the confirmation window.
[su_note note_color=”#ffffe3″ text_color=”#000000″]https://web.whatsapp.com/send?phone=919876543210[/su_note]
You just need to replace the api.whatsapp.com with web.whatsapp.com. It’ll not show you a confirmation window and the link will direct open in the WhatsApp web version. That’s it.
