How do I connect my WhatsApp number to Chaty?

In this guide we’ll show you how to connect your WhatsApp number to Chaty. 

Let’s dive in. Open the Chaty settings from your WordPress dashboard and add a WhatsApp channel from ”Step 1: Choose your channels”.

In the field that will show up, start typing your full number with country code (it will work both with and without a + before it), for example if you’re from the UK, start typing 44 or +44… The flag of the country associated with the country code will appear in front of the field:

Last but not least, by default on a desktop device, your website visitors will be redirected to a new window asking them to continue the chat on the WhatsApp desktop app if they have it installed on their device, or to an official WhatsApp desktop app download link. If you select the ”Use WhatsApp Web directly on desktop” feature from the WhatsApp settings, the new chat will open in WhatsApp Web directly in their browser. 

You can also opt for an embedded WhatsApp chat popup, to learn how, head over to this page:
