    Back in iOS 9 I had an option to send WhatsApp message through spotlight search. Search for contact name and then there is option to send message via whatsapp.
    How to get this feature back in iOS 11?

    I also noticed this issue and is very annoying. Did anyone find a solution?

    I contacted WhatsApp support but got no solution from them...

    I also notice that when Siri is reading Whatsapp messages it no longer gives the option to reply...

    Also when reading Whatsapp messages it doesn’t resume music in my car when it has finished; reading iMessages via siri does not do this.

    I contacted Whatsapp support and got told to speak to Apple...

    I tried it out.. are you saying this ... whenin spotlight search, I can type a contact and then directly I can select that contact to whatsapp via Siri search? Like this?

    I can send a whatsapp by tapping her name in the whatsapp icon, but i can’tsend a message tapping the message icon above..

    However, tapping the call icon works and I can send a whatsapp call directly, if I have added it the default from the settings.
