Click to Chat URL for WhatsApp not opening the WhatsApp app on iPhone

by Marius Botha   Last Updated July 11, 2019 23:12 PM

When SMS with shortened Click to Chat URL for WhatsApp is received on the iPhone, clicking it leads me to the App Store instead of opening chat in WhatsApp, despite WhatsApp being installed on the device.

In another post it was recommended to use Whatsapp:// but I don't believe that resolves my issue, since services like BITLY won't accept that URL to shorten it.

How can I use a URL to open chats within WhatsApp on iPhones?
