How to Send WhatsApp Message Without Saving Contact Number

WhatsApp is one of the biggest messaging apps and caters to more than 2 billion users worldwide. To bring people together, it has introduced cool features such as WhatsApp Communities, share your live location in WhatsApp, and even the ability to message yourself in WhatsApp. The company offers a ton of useful features but skimps on basic functionality, i.e. the ability to send a message to WhatsApp users without saving their phone number. However, there are several workarounds to this problem, and we will explain how you can easily message someone on WhatsApp without adding their contact number.
