How to Add a Contact to WhatsApp

You can add a contact to your iPhone or Android phone using the Contacts app, and if they’re on WhatsApp, you’ll find the person in the latter app.

You can also add a contact to your device using WhatsApp, and in this post, you’ll see how.

Once you do so, you’ll find that contact in the Contacts app, and if they’re on WhatsApp, you’ll also find the person in the latter app.

I use Google Pixel 4a, and iPhone X. Let’s begin.

Add Contact to WhatsApp

If you’re using an Android device, follow these steps:

  1. Open the WhatsApp Messenger app and hit the green color icon at the bottom right.
  2. Select the New contact option.
  3. Provide now the name and number. If you wish, you can fill in other details too.
  4. Hit Save at the top right.

That’s all. If the contact is on WhatsApp, you can see it now on the list. Even if it is not on WhatsApp, you can find it in the Contacts app.

If you’re using an iPhone, follow these steps:

Launch the WhatsApp app and hit the Chats tab if you’re not in it already.

Hit the icon at the top right and select “New Contact.”

Provide the name and number. Hit the Save at the top right.
