Create Universal Links
Universal links are the preferred method of linking to a WhatsApp account.
Use https://wa.me/<number> where the <number> is a full phone number in international format. Omit any brackets, dashes, plus signs, and leading zeros when adding the phone number in international format.
Don’t use: https://wa.me/+001-(555)1234567
Universal links can also include a pre-filled message that will automatically appear in the text field of a chat. Use https://wa.me/whatsappphonenumber/?text=urlencodedtext where whatsappphonenumber is a full phone number in international format and URL-encodedtext is the URL-encoded pre-filled message.
To create a link with just a pre-filled message, use https://wa.me/?text=urlencodedtext
