    • Hello nitin, you can see send button whenever you start typing text. I tried it for ENTER also, but it is not possible in WhatsApp web.

  4. I was able to install Bluestacks however I currently don’t have a working phone, so I’m not able to get the validating number. If I try using someone else’s to receive the message it links to their account, switching the accounts again prompts that a text be sent, any suggestions?
