You want to call someone on WhatsApp but are unsure how to go about it because they haven’t saved your number. Either this is your first time calling someone, or you have never used WhatsApp.
We understand you’re unsure how to move forward, but that’s why we’re here. Please stay with us until the end, as we will answer all your questions.
Let us assure you that calling someone who hasn’t saved your number isn’t difficult; all you need to do is know how to proceed. Now, let’s get started.
How to Make a Whatsapp Call to Someone Who Hasn’t Saved My Number?
In WhatsApp, you can call someone who hasn’t saved your number in their contacts. Whether or not someone has your number saved doesn’t matter in order to make a WhatsApp call.
What truly matters is that you have the number saved in your phonebook. If the person is on WhatsApp, they automatically get added by default.
All that remains is for you to go to their WhatsApp account and place the call. Sounds confusing? Please allow us to walk you through the steps so you won’t miss anything.
Here’s how you make a WhatsApp call to someone who hasn’t saved your number:
Step 1: Save the target person’s number on your phone and head to WhatsApp.
Step 2: Use the search icon at the top on WhatsApp to find their name.
Step 3: Once there, click on the name to open the chat.
Step 4: You’ll see the camera icon for Video calls and the dialer icon for audio calls.
Click on either of the two to make your preferred call.
However, there’s a catch to this situation: If a person has silenced unknown callers, they might not hear their phone ring. It doesn’t affect your call much, but we’ll show you how it’s done and its effects to familiarize you with this setting. If you want to learn about this feature from WhatsApp, kindly read the following section.
How to silence unknown callers?
Are you sick of having calls from strangers at any time of day? We understand.
To put it simply, it’s inconvenient, particularly if you’re out and about attending work when you hear a call and assume it’s from someone important. Now that your phone is in your hand and it’s continuously vibrating with a number you think is spam, you completely lose it.
Although there isn’t much we can do to prevent those calls, we can silence them so you won’t hear them ring. The calls will still, of course, appear in your notifications and on the Calls page.
But once you’ve silenced them, you may concentrate on talks and chats that are actually important while protecting your privacy and avoiding unwanted interactions.
Here’s how you silence unknown callers on WhatsApp:
Step 1: On WhatsApp, click on the three vertical dots in the upper right corner.
Step 2: Select Settings at the bottom of the menu list.
Step 3: Go to the Privacy option.
Step 4: Once there, navigate to the Calls option and give it a tap.
Step 5: Do you see the toggle with silence unknown callers option? Turn the toggle on.
Once it turns green, you’ve successfully silenced calls from unknown numbers.
We’ve spoken about blocking calls from unknown numbers and calling someone who hasn’t saved your number. But do you know how to determine whether someone has saved your WhatsApp number? Make sure to check the below section since we’ll talk about this.
How to know if someone has saved your number on WhatsApp?
You shared your WhatsApp number with someone, but do you know if they saved it or not? They haven’t texted or called you on WhatsApp, which might be signs that they haven’t saved it.
However, perhaps we’re mistaken, and they’re simply too busy to do those two things. How long would you sit still waiting for their text or call?
Don’t you think it’s better to take action than to sit about and overthink the whole thing? Let’s be clear about one thing before proceeding: there isn’t an official or direct method to find out this information.
