Wondering how to share someone’s contact information on WhatsApp in 2022? While you can go ahead and copy and paste the person’s number and send it over, that’s not the appropriate way of doing so. 

WhatsApp allows its users to share contact information directly from within the platform. 

This means – if one of your friends “Ron” asks you to share another one of your friends “Jack’s” contact information, you don’t really need to head over to your phone’s “My Contact” section, copy Jack’s phone number, paste it on Ron’s chat and hit Enter.

That’s just too much work.

Instead, what you can do is head over to Ron’s WhatsApp chat screen, select “Contact,” look up Jack’s contact and send it over to him.

And the best part is – if Jack is an active WhatsApp user, Ron doesn’t really need to save Jack’s number on his phone. Instead, he can directly communicate with Ron via the contact card’s “Message” option.

To help you better understand how to share WhatsApp contact in 2022, I’ve put together this blog post where I’ll be explaining:

Without further ado, let’s have a look at it straight away.

The Wrong Way of Sharing WhatsApp Contact Information

Let me explain with a quick example. 

One of my friends “Ram” asked me to share another one of my friend’s “Ashish’s” contact details. So – here’s the wrong way of sharing Ashish’s contact information:

The Wrong Way of Sharing WhatsApp Contact Information

What I did here is that I:

  • Hopped onto Ashish’s contact in my phone’s “My Contacts” section
  • Copied Ashish’s phone number
  • Hopped onto Ram’s chat on WhatsApp
  • Pasted Ashish’s number there
  • Sent it over to Ram

Don’t do this. What if Ram wants to communicate with Ashish via WhatsApp and doesn’t really want to save his number? In that case, this method won’t really work.

This is the hard way.

Now, let me show you the smart way of sharing WhatsApp contact in 2022.

How to Share WhatsApp Contact in 2022

To share WhatsApp contact in 2022, the first step is to launch the person’s chat you want to send the contact information over to, click on the “Attach File” or “Plus” icon, select “Contacts,” search and select the contact of the person you want to send over and hit the send button.

To help you gain clarity and whether you are an Android or iOS user, allow me to share the steps you need to follow in both the cases:
