whatsapp-phonegap-plugin

This plugin opens a chat session with the given phonenumber in Whatsapp on Android.

The behavior is similar to the generic tel:, smsto:, or mailto: URL schemes on iOS and Android.
iOS supports a generic URL scheme for whatsapp ("whatsapp://send?abid=").
However on Android the URL scheme is currently not supported.
This plugin implements the send-via-whatsapp functionality on Android.

Example

Say you want to open a chat session with phone number: 111-222-3333
