How to Start a WhatsApp Chat from the iOS Notification Center

WhatsApp is a really useful messaging application, thanks to its popularity it has become one of the most effective methods to contact friends and family. With the arrival of various updates, both to Apple’s mobile operating system and to the application itself, WhatsApp has been including new features that save us time and inconvenience such as rapid response.

With WhatsApp’s Quick Reply in iOS 9 (also known as Quick Reply) we have the ability to respond to messages directly from a notification by simply sliding your finger over it, but of course, for it to work we must receive a message.

That’s why, on this occasion, we present to you an application for WhatsApp that allows us to start chat conversations from the Notification Center. An ideal tool, especially if you have many contacts, or little time.

Shortcut for WhatsApp allows you to start chats in WhatsApp and other applications

A few days ago on our blog we posted a number of new features on WhatsApp that were included in the latest update to the iPhone app. Unfortunately, however, none of these great features allow us to start chats from anywhere other than the WhatsApp application itself.

Searching through the App Store we came across a great widget for the Notification Center , its name is Shortcut for WhatsApp and you can try it absolutely free. However, it offers in-app purchases to download the premium version of the application.

The Shortcut for WhatsApp app allows us to select the contacts we want to include in the Notification Center and also organize them according to our preferences .

To use the app you don’t need to press the Home Button on the iPhoneiPad, or open the WhatsApp application to find a contact and start a conversation. All you need to do is slide your finger down to open the Notification Center and tap the contact you want to chat with – it’s that easy!

The application requires iOS 8, at a minimum, to work since the widgets for the Notification Center came in that version of Apple’s mobile OS. It is compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. Remember that you can follow our manual to install WhatsApp on the iPad (requires jailbreak) if necessary.
