Whatsapp Direct Messaging API

This API allows user to create a link to their whatsapp account without the needs to save the phone number. Using it on the desktop will start a conversation using Whatsapp Web while on mobile Whatsapp will automatically open and start a conversation.

It's more like 'Click to Whatsapp' thingy or maybe 'Surf to Whatsapp'. Have fun!

You can also use the official one below.

Features

  1. You can use your own domain.
  2. No more saving phone number just to start a conversation.
