Whatsapp integration for checking and calling on a mobile number

Hi team,

In my mobile application i want to integrate whatsapp for calling on a user's given mobile number.


Any pointers will be help full.


Thanks,

I'm not sure that's possible. WhatsApp allows sending a message through their URL scheme, but I don't think they allow voice calling. See here for some details.

Hi Preeti,

I agree with Kilian, direct voice call not avilabe by WhatsApp, you can redirect on whats app and after that you are able to send sms or call on this number.
