How to send a message to all WhatsApp contacts

Preliminary information

Before getting to the heart of the topic, it seems only right to make some clarifications about the functionality that can be exploited to be able to send a message to all WhatsApp contacts simultaneously.

The operation you are interested in can be performed using the broadcast lists. If you have never heard of it, these are lists that can be created by including your contacts on WhatsApp and that allow you to send the same message to multiple users simultaneously.



The user part of a broadcast list does not know that he has been added to it (unless this is expressly communicated to him) and receives the message in private way, as if it were a common conversation. Any response is then received by the creator of the list always privately.

For each broadcast list it is possible to add a minimum of 2 contacts up to a maximum of 256. Furthermore, in order to be added to the list, the contacts in question must have saved the number of the person who created it in the address book of the mobile phone to which the reference WhatsApp account is associated.

In short, while presenting some analogy with groups, in which all the participants (maximum 256) can participate in the conversation as a group, broadcast lists are a fundamentally different thing.

A similar argument, in some ways, applies to the function for forwarding messages, with which the broadcast lists have in common the possibility of being able to send the same message to several contacts. In this case, however, the maximum number of contacts to which it is possible to forward the messages from time to time is equal to 5 and it is essential that the message of interest has already been sent to someone or received.



It should be noted that all messages sent using the broadcast lists can possibly be deleted by proceeding in a practically similar way to how it is possible to do with "normal" conversations, as I explained to you in my tutorial on the subject.

How to send a message to all WhatsApp contacts from a computer

Let's now pass to the side computer and let's find out, together, how to send a message to all WhatsApp contacts using the service client for Windows and macOS or WhatsApp Web, the Web version of WhatsApp that works in all major Web browsers.

Unfortunately, none of the solutions just mentioned allows you to directly generate broadcast lists. they only allow you to send messages to previously created lists on smartphones. The same goes for management: from a computer the lists cannot be modified, only deleted.

Taking into account what has just been stated, first of all start the WhatsApp application on your computer, recalling it via the Start menu (if you are using Windows) or via the Launchpad (if you are using macOS). If, on the other hand, you prefer to use WhatsApp Web, connect to it using your favorite browser (eg. Chrome).

Now, if you haven't already done so, scan the QR code to connect to your account. To do this, open WhatsApp on your smartphone, go to the section Settings> WhatsApp Web / Desktop> Scan QR Code and scan the code you see in the WhatsApp window on the PC with the mobile phone camera. More details on what to do are available in my tutorial on how to use WhatsApp from your PC.

Then select the lisa broadcast created from mobile in the list of conversations on the left side of the WhatsApp screen and type the message you want to send to all the contacts in the list in the appropriate text box, located at the bottom right. Then press the button Submit on the computer keyboard or click on the button with thepaper airplane you see appear.

If, on the other hand, you want to send photos, videos, documents or want to share contacts, click on the icon clip located at the top right and make your choice from the menu that opens.

As for reading any replies received from contacts, just open the individual conversations by clicking on the relevant names on the left side of the WhatsApp screen. Within them, you can also view the messages you have sent using the broadcast list, easily recognizable as they are marked with a symbol of a megaphone.

If you want to delete a created broadcast list, click on down arrow that you find next to the name of the same (in the list of conversations), select the item Delete broadcast list from the menu that opens and click on the button Delete.
