    Why not publish the solutions here instead of passing it by private message. What sense does that make?

  • dafonk

    Adding what and where???

  • dafonk

    Where you add the ” ” and what are the two points :

  • dafonk

    I can not understand. Still does not work, clicking the button Whatsapp directed to a page that does not open. Some say you have to add “:” somewhere. Do not know where.
    I do not understand how it should work as WhatsApp works with a phone number …

  • Hi, Whatsapp sharing is only available via mobile. Our apologies for the confusion. This is due to no available sharing API for desktop.

  • Vernon Fernandes

    Hi, The whatsapp sharing button is not working on the Windows OS phone at the moment. It worked well the previous month, but now it simply goes and opens the whatsapp website. This only on Windows OS phones, works on iOS and Android. Please advise

  • Were you trying to share to WhatsApp from your site on desktop or mobile? WhatsApp sharing only works via mobile, because they don’t provide a sharing API for desktop.

  • Mahesh Yadav

    what about windows mobile?

  • Currently we only support WhatsApp sharing for iOS and Android browsers.

  • Sharit Sinha
