Send app invitations via whatsapp


#1

Hey there!

I am interested in building an app or website with bubble and would like to make users be able to send invitations to the app via whatsapp.

I know websites where there is a QR code which you can scan, then whatsapp opens on your pc and you can send the link to friends. Or, if you are on your mobile device already, you just click on a button to send the link to a friend.

Now I am wondering how they do that? Is there a possibility to do the same on bubble.is?

Thanks for your help
Felix

Hey Felix! That should be pretty easy to do! Just create a link or button in Bubble and set the ‘destination URL’ to the following:
whatsapp://send?text=Check out this Bubble site https://www.bubble.is"

This doesn’t open the desktop version of WhatsApp though – not sure how that works. But I just tested it and it works perfectly on mobile (iOS) – which is most important of course :slight_smile:

There are some QR code generation plugins available on Bubble too – but I haven’t experimented with those yet, so can’t help with that.

Cheers,
Robbert
