How To Find People On WhatsApp: Is it possible?

For those that want to stay connected with friends and family, WhatsApp is one of the most popular messaging apps to use. With its user-friendly interface, you can easily chat to other people using the app.

But how can you get in touch with other people using WhatsApp? That’s what we’re going to take a look at today.

Finding People on WhatsApp

The first step is having their phone number stored in your contacts list. There’s no way to search for people on WhatsApp like you can with Line Messenger or Kik.

This means that you need to have the phone number of the person that you want to chat with. Once you’ve acquired this, you can then get in touch with them to talk.

You can then find people on WhatsApp by:

  1. Asking for their phone number and adding it to your contacts
  2. Searching for their name in the WhatsApp search bar (if they’re already a contact).
  3. Syncing your contacts with WhatsApp and seeing if they are on the app
  4. Checking your phone’s address book to see if their number is saved with a WhatsApp label.

Another good option is joining groups related to your interests. These could be anything from sports teams, hobby clubs, professional organizations – basically any group of like-minded individuals who communicate regularly via WhatsApp messages.

Once you join these groups, you’ll be able to get in touch with others who share your interests and start making connections. There are various different places you can find groups to join without an invite link.

However, the most popular of these is definitely Whats Group Link. Here, you can quickly find WhatsApp groups that you can join without having to already have an invite from the admin.

Group chats are a great way to stay connected with family, friends and colleagues, but they can also be a good place to meet new people too.

Aside from being able to communicate with multiple people in one go as you can easily add people to your WhatsApp group, they also come with other useful features such as the ability to share files and photos.


In conclusion, there’s actually no way for you to find people within the WhatsApp app that you don’t already have in your contacts list.

This is unlike some other social media apps, that offer you the chance to meet new acquaintances by using the app alone. Apps like Telegram or Omegle are better if you want to chat to people you’ve never met before.

WhatsApp is still the most popular choice when it comes to messaging, but it’s better to use with people you already know.
