If you use WhatsApp Web on your PC to chat with your WhatsApp friends, then you might have noticed that there is no direct option to add unsaved contacts to WhatsApp or your phone book.

Simply, click on this button and then choose whether you want to replace an existing contact or add a new contact.
Step 4: Suppose, you have selected the “Add New Contact” option, then it will open up a popup window where you will be able to enter the name of the contact before saving. Not only that, it will also let you add more details for the contact like email id, job title, company, additional notes, etc.
