Whatsapp Account Message

Hello,

I was trying to add a contact via WhatsApp and send them a message via the app.
For some reason I can't send the message.
I know for sure that this contact has a WhatsApp account but still I am not able to send the message.
Does anyone have experience with this issue?

The error message that appears:
"You seem to be trying to send a WhatsApp message to a phone number that is not registered with WhatsApp.
Your contact must have WhatsApp installed in order to chat in WhatsApp.
If this was done automatically, it is likely that WhatsApp is the default messaging app.
Press "SMS" to send a normal SMS to this contact, press "Invite" to send an invitation, or press "Reset" to restore default messaging app setting".

Thanks

Re: Whatsapp Account Message

Could it be that the country code of the contact's number is different from the country code of your whatsapp number? In that case you will need to add the country code to the contact's number

I already added the country code in several ways, but unfortunately it doesn't work.
Is there any other reason that this error could occur?
