WhatsApp Messenger doesn't appear in "share" list

  • Hi there,

    I have the next problem on my Samsung Galaxy S7 SM-G930F under Android v. 8.0.0 running Opera v. 52.2.2517.139816.

    Steps to reproduce

    1. I have installed both WhatsApp Messenger (with my SIM telephone number)
      and WhatsApp Businesses (with a virtual telephone number).

    2. After installing WhatsApp Business, this latest app has replaced WhatsApp
      Messenger in Opera share (image, url..
      ) menus/lists of apps.

    3. WhatsApp Messenger and WhatsApp Business are independent applications. 
      In fact, both applications appear in the "share" menu/list of other browsers.

    Expected result

    Both apps (WhatsApp Messenger and WhatsApp Businesses) should appear in
    Opera "share" menus/lists of apps.

    Actual result

    Only WhatsApp Businesses appears in Opera "share" menus/lists.


    Is it a bug or is there any possibility to configure the list of apps that appear when "share" button is pressed?

    Thanks in advance.

  • @portamento How other apps behave?

  • Hello @leocg. Thank you for your quick reply.

    No problem with other apps, in which both WhatsApp Messenger and WhatsApp Business appear simultaneously in the list that merge after pushing "share" button. It seems to be a problem of Opera.

  • In fact, I just realized that Opera has its own share menu. Even installing a 3rd
    party app for changing Android share menu appearance, Opera's one remains the same, without any change, unlike other applications.
