How to add an embedded WhatsApp chat to your website

In this guide we’ll show you how to add an embedded WhatsApp chat window to your website through Chaty. 

You can use this feature to show your website visitors an inviting embedded WhatsApp window with a welcome message, encouraging your customers to start chatting with you. Once they type their message, they’ll be redirected to the WhatsApp app to continue the conversation.

So let’s dive in. First, open the Chaty settings from your WordPress dashboard and add a WhatsApp channel from ”Step 1: Choose your channels”.

To enable the embedded window feature, toggle the ”WhatsApp Chat pop up” feature:
