You can easily insert a link in the signature of your e-mails that opens Whatsapp for the recipient immediately after a click. He can then send you a message directly. However, this only works if he is logged in to Whatsapp and has installed the app – either on the smartphone or on the desktop.
Insert a link to Whatsapp in an email
The link to your Whatsapp presence looks like this: https://wa.me/
You can insert a link to your Whatsapp address in the signature in Outlook. After clicking on it, WhatsApp opens for the recipient and he can write you a message directly.
To expand your signature in Outlook accordingly, open a new email and go to “Signature -> Signatures”. Highlight the name of your signature and type in a text such as Contact me via Whatsapp. Select the text and click on the icon on the far right in the toolbar to open the “Insert link” window. Next to “Address”, enter the link to your Whatsapp account as shown and confirm with “OK”. In addition, you can also use the Whatsapp logo in the signature. Download it to your PC from the official website https://whatsappbrand.com, then use an image editor to resize it. Switch back to Outlook and the “Signatures and Stationery” window. Click on the second button from the right in the toolbar and insert the icon in the following window. You can also choose to store the symbol itself with the link mentioned. To do this, right-click on it and go to “Link” in the context menu.
With the desktop app, the popular WhatsApp messenger can now also be used on the PC or notebook.
