Just enter a mobile number with country code in the application. It will launch WhatsApp and navigate you to the contact’s chat window.
Just like Click to Chat, Easy Message is also an ad-free application. It allows you to send WhatsApp message to a number without saving it. Enter the contact number and you will be redirected to the contact’s chat window.
