Hi guys, as we all know that WhatsApp is the most popular instant messaging app for smartphones. And the good news is that WhatsApp has added a new update that will be very beneficial for you. So today we are discussing with you that how you can directly chat with family or friends on WhatsApp’s web version after the Facebook-owned messaging service registered a new domain www.wa.me.
Note: We are not sure about this update, we just read this news on some news websites.
Now Use WhatsApp Without Opening The App. Here is how
The new feature of WhatsApp is available for Android 2.18.138 and it needs users to update their app to the said beta version.
In a report featured on WAbeta Info:
- The domain is a short link of api.whatsapp.com and it can be used to quickly open a chat in WhatsApp, following this structure: https://wa.me/14155552671.
- WhatsApp for Android 2.18.138 successfully recognizes the wa.me short link.
- It means the chat will be automatically opened without using the browser.
- If you want to use wa.me and you have an old WhatsApp version installed, you will be redirected to api.whatsapp.com in your browser.
To enjoy the new chat feature, WhatsApp users need to type https://wa.me/(phone number) of the person they want to drop the text to. They will automatically be directed to the chat. If you want to use wa.me and you have an old WhatsApp version installed, you will be redirected to api.whatsapp.com in your browser.
Every time you use wa.me or api.whatsapp.com, WhatsApp checks if you are trying to open a chat with an existing WhatsApp user. If you try to open a chat with an uncorrected WhatsApp phone number, WhatsApp will notify you: as ‘phone number shared via URL is invalid’.
Other than this, according to report by WAbeta Info WhatsApp is currently working to improve the Sticker feature. WhatsApp recently rolled out sticker album for its Beta Users. The sticker feature is not yet made available and will be enabled in the next releases.
