Steps to Follow:

- Type the following link in the search bar: https://api.whatsapp.com/send?phone=XXXXXXXXXXX (In place of the Xs add the phone number of the person you want to contact with country code but without the + sign.)
- That means that if the person has an American number (with the +1 prefix), it would look something like this: https://api.whatsapp.com/send?phone=19175550123
- Press ‘enter’ on your smartphone.
- A WhatsApp window will open asking if you want to send a message to that phone number.
- Press on ‘send message’.
