If you are looking for a way to send someone messages but don’t want to save their numbers? If yes, then you are in the right place. Today we will tell you how you can send someone messages without saving a number on your phone. Sometimes we want to send a one time message to some people where we don’t want to keep them on our contact list. At such times this method could be extremely useful. It will save you and keep your contacts clean as well without adding unwanted people to the list.
WhatsApp has billions of active users monthly and it is without any doubt the most popular social media apps. It serves users with a simple interface with lots of cool features. However, there is one small thing that irritates users is that to send someone a message on WhatsApp you first require the number to be saved in your contact list. Without adding the number to your contact, you can’t simply start a conversation with someone. With that being said, is there any workaround for this? Yes, we have got 2 simple workarounds that will enable you to send a message on WhatsApp to someone without adding their number to your contact list. So let’s get started.
There are actually 2 ways to do this. The first one requires you to use the browser to search a specific link while the latter requires you to download app and use it to send messages to people you don’t want in your phonebook.
Method 1- Send Message using a Link
In this method you have to paste a link alongwith the number you want to send message without saving contact.
1. To do this, open any browser and copy the following link into the address bar.
2. After copying this link you have to replace x with the phone number. Before phone number make sure you write country code.
So for example, if you are sending a message to someone who lives in India, the code will be 91.
For America, it is 1. You can find the dialling codes of the country if you don’t know by just googling it. This depends on the location of the person you are sending message to.
The code should like this for a Indian number.
Here 91 is country code and the last 10 digits- 6667778889 is the actual phone number.
The digits before the actual number are the international dialling code, so you should know this. Also, make sure not to include anything else except the dialling code of a country and the 10 digits number.
3. After putting the link along with the dialling code and the number in the search bar of your browser, press enter or click on the search icon.
4. It will look like this. Here you have to press the green button Continue to Chat. This will take you to the WhatsApp.
5. You will be taken to the conversation screen with that contact. Here you can do chat with the contact and do basically everything you can do with other contacts on WhatsApp except you don’t have to save it to your contact list.
You can also use this link-
Method 2- Use Click to chat app (No Ads)
Method 2 is actually pretty straight forward and it doesn’t require you to manually copy-paste the link in the search bar of the browser. Instead, you just need to put in the number you want to send a message on WhatsApp. This will save a lot of time as well.
We recommend method 2 if you need to send messages to the senders more often. This will reduce the manual work of copy-pasting that link in the browser every time.
So the idea is simple. All you have to do is to install a called Click to Chat app. This app has been made for the sole purpose of letting users send messages to the sender without having to save the number on the phone.
This app uses WhatsApp public API to open chat conversation screen. The contact number is not saved to your device.
1. Go to play store and search for Click to chat. You can download it by clicking the download button below.
2. Install it on your device and open the app. You will see something like this.
Now as explained above write the country code where the sender lives and enter a 10 digits mobile number and press open. This will take you to WhatsApp where you can start off the conversation with a stranger without adding saving their number.
Why should you use Click to Chat app?
Click to Chat app just weighs as little as 106KB.
It is also worth mentioning that the Click to Chat app doesn’t have any Ads. So, you won’t have any issue using it. It’s just a small app but does a great job of letting users send messages to strangers or random people without saving their contact numbers.
So this is how you can send one time messages to anyone without saving contact on your device. This comes in handy when you just want to send some photos, text messages to someone just a few times.
