Contacts are – unsurprisingly – the lifeblood of WhatsApp.
They’re integral to your enjoyment of the app. Otherwise, who else would you speak to?
Thankfully, there are several ways to add contacts in WhatsApp.
How to add contacts in WhatsApp
The first way to add a contact is directly through WhatsApp.
Press New Chat, then go top Options and then Add New Contact.
You’ll then be able to enter the contact’s name and telephone number.
Once you’ve entered those, press Save.
Now that contact should automatically appear in your contact list.
If it doesn’t, press Chat, then Options and then Reload Contacts.
The second way to add a contact in WhatsApp is via your phone’s address book.
Go to your Contacts app, and save a contact in your phone.
When you return to WhatsApp, you should find the new contact automatically appearing in your list.
If not, you might need to quit and restart the app.
Alternatively, you can go to New Chat, then Options, and then choose Reload Contacts.
Adding contacts via your phone is probably the best way, as it saves the person’s details across your phone and WhatsApp.
