WhatsApp says I am being "rate limited" was closed on Super User for being off-topic, as a web service. It's about an error message I'm getting with the Windows version of WhatsApp. Is there an appropriate place on any of the Exchange sites for this question?
As requested, here is the question: I am using the Windows and Android version of WhatsApp. It works fine for sending regular text messages, but as soon as I send a link to a Zoom meeting with the Windows version, it says, "You are being rate limited." I contacted WhatsApp support and got random answers that seemed like the person never read my question. The first response was: "1. Open your phone's Settings. 2. Tap Apps > select the application you no longer need as a default or wish to set as a default. 3. Tap * Open by default*. 4. Tap Open supported links to toggle it on or off".
When I complained about the response, they asked me to send a video capture of the issue happening, which I did. Then they said, "Unfortunately, this feature isn't supported. We're constantly working on improving our products." So what's not supported? Sending text messages with links in them? How do I work around this? If I can't, is there some way to get real support out of WhatsApp?
