WhatsApp#

Note

Slidge uses WhatsApp’s Linked Devices feature, which may require perioding re-linking against the official client. However, you can still not use or even uninstall the official client between re-linking.

Roster#

Contact JIDs are of the form +<phone-number>@slidge-whatsapp.example.org, where <phone-number> is the contact’s phone number in international format (e.g. +442087599036. Contacts will be added to the roster as they engage with your account, and may not all appear at once as they exist in the official client.

Presences#

Your contacts’ presence will appear as either “online” when the contact is currently using the WhatsApp client, or “away” otherwise; their last interaction time will also be noted if you’ve chosen to share this in the privacy settings of the official client.
