This is necessary so that our number is enabled to send Whatsapp through uContact.

There we will have to fill out a form with our data and wait for approval.

After the number is approved, we will go to the configuration of Twilio Whatsapp.

and a link to configure each one.

Pressing the link opens a pop-up to configure our URLs of Incoming Messages and Status.


The FROM field must be copied.

To configure the URLs we will use the following links.
