Since WhatsApp has become a part of our daily lives, what if you wanted to send a text to someone whose number was not saved on your contact list.
WhatsApp is one of the largest social messaging apps right now and everyone uses the app daily. We use it every day with us sending at least 10-15 messages every day. When WhatsApp was initially launched, it used to be a problem to send someone a message if the number was not saved in your contact list. But things have changed.
The app brings with it a lot of features and also brings end-to-end encryption of messages. However, there’s the ability to share images, videos and stay in touch with your family and friends securely.
WhatsApp may have replaced traditional text messaging though there were few perks of texting that you may miss while using WhatsApp. Like you cannot send a message without first saving the contact in your smartphone. But what if we told you that there’s a way you can send messages without the need to save the contact in your address book. While many believe it’s impossible, here’s a step-by-step guide on how you can send a message without saving the number on your smartphone.
