For some reason, it's not showing the whatsapp message option when i click on a contact in my Android. It used to do it up until yesterday. Is there some new Android update bug that's blocking this whatsapp feature? I can use whatsapp but only if I go to the whatsapp app. I can't use whatsapp from my contacts page. Please help!

Check whether you have granted the 'Contacts' permission to your WhatsApp Messenger.

Whenever an android phone gets updated you again have to provide all permissions and all that you're missing is contacts permission for whatsapp.
