Only few beta testers have this option now but soon, it will expand to more users. And in this post, I will show you how to use the new option to chat with anyone without saving their number on WhatsApp.

If you only have someone’s WhatsApp number, then it is hard to chat with them without saving it first. It is even harder doing on desktop. Even though there are tricks and methods available such as by WhatsApp web link or tapping in chat, but it seems that you don’t have to resort to those methods anymore.

On WhatsApp desktop app, you can now explicitly start a chat with a number as it gives you a keypad where you can type the number with country code. You can also copy paste the number with country code and it will detect that.
