Sharing link on WhatsApp from mobile website not application for Android

0 votes
I created a website that is primarily used on mobile devices.
I want to make it possible for users to send data directly from a website into WhatsApp.

I can differentiate between iOS and Android using UserAgent detection.
I was able to learn that I could use the following URL to implement the aforementioned in iOS:

href="whatsapp://send?text=http://www.example.com"
Since the aforementioned does not function when the operating system is Android, I am still hunting for a solution.
I suppose that has something to do with leveraging Android's "intent" feature, but I'm not sure how to use it as a href parameter.
