Sending a message on WhatsApp Web without saving a contact’s number

Sending a message on WhatsApp Web without saving a contact’s number can be a useful trick for sending a quick message without cluttering your contacts. Here’s how you can do it:

Note: WhatsApp’s features and interfaces can change over time, so ensure you are using the latest version of WhatsApp Web for the best experience.

  1. Access WhatsApp Web:
  • Open a web browser on your computer and navigate to WhatsApp Web.
  1. Scan QR Code:
  • On your mobile device, open WhatsApp.
  • Tap on the three dots in the top-right corner and select “WhatsApp Web.”
  • This will activate the camera on your phone.
  • Use your phone’s camera to scan the QR code displayed on the WhatsApp Web page. This links your WhatsApp account to the web version.
  1. Open a New Chat:
  • Once you’re logged into WhatsApp Web, you’ll see your chats on the left-hand side.
  • Click on the “New chat” icon, which looks like a green chat bubble with a PLUS in it.
  1. Start Typing:
  • In the “To” field, you don’t need to add a contact. Instead, start typing the message recipient’s phone number along with the country code. For example, if you’re sending a message to a US number, you would type something like: +1XXXXXXXXXX.
  1. Compose Your Message:
  • After typing the phone number, press Enter.
  • You can now type your message in the chat box.
  1. Send Your Message:
  • Once you’ve composed your message, simply press Enter to send it.
  1. Optional: Save the Contact (if desired):
  • If you want to save this contact for future reference, click on the contact’s name or number at the top of the chat.
  • In the chat header, click on the three dots (more options).
  • From the dropdown menu, select “Add contact.”
  • You can then add a name and any other information you want before saving the contact to your phone.

That’s it! You’ve sent a WhatsApp message to a number without saving it as a contact on your phone. This can be a handy method for sending one-off messages or contacting people you don’t want to save in your regular contacts list.
