[Note: being a free without ads nor purchases app, the progress and updates are based on the reception and support from you. There is a donation version that you can buy to help the development: play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.trianguloy.openInWhatsapp.donation ]

[New: There is now a web version, compatible with WhatsApp Web: trianguloy.github.io/OpenInWhatsapp_Web/ ]

Did you know you can open a chat in WhatsApp with any number without saving first into contacts by opening in your browser the link 'wa.me/123456789' (using the prefix+number desired)?
Source: faq.whatsapp.com/en/android/26000030/

Originally that link was longer and more difficult to remember, so I made this tiny app to help in the process.

Since then I have added multiple functionalities (enter message, share link, list of country codes, create shortcut, save recent and pinned, open recent calls via add-on, and a few more) but always with these three principles:
1) Make the smaller app possible. This means no extra unrelated content, no extra libraries and no useless things. Currently its size is around 100KB=0.1MB. Less than a standard picture!
2) Use as few permissions as possible. Only the create_shortcut permission is used, nothing else! (no calls, no storage, no internet).
3) No ads. I hate ads. I will never add ads, adware, spyware, user tracking or other nasty stuff.

If you want a small tool to help you open numbers in WhatsApp, try it. If you prefer an app that sends your data to Google, there are clones out there.
