    Hey guys, I would like to be able to use my audi mmi system, to perform call though whatsapp or messenger. currently it works as long as I use my phone to open messenger/whatsapp and call from there. but I would like to be able to select a contact and select fb or whatsapp and it would automatic call. I think it would be somehow possible since my car register I am in a call when using fb or whatsapp.

    I think you should focus on driving that car, not chatting on fb or whatever other distraction. If you ran over my kid cos you were busy playing with fb etc, I would pull you from the car and pummel you into a grease spot. I see near misses every day due to ppl doing phone stuff while driving along the highway and it makes my blood boil! As a critical care nurse I see the innocent victims of these types on a daily basis too..

    To contribute to the answer. The app would need to support such capability. It sounds like the car wants to use the default "phone" app to make calls. I don't believe that's something that can be changed, and it's certainly not something you want to be messing with choosing which app to use to make a call while driving.

    Pull over and park before using an online app or SIP calling.

    I guess you don't see my point, I want to have my phone more intergrated with my car, so I DON'T have to use my phone, but can use my voice, because as it is for now I can just say "call [name]" and it calls the person. I want to be able to do that with messenger too, since I would rather use my internet than normal phone call, since I am often across borders. So my point being that I don't want to be distracted with my phone, so therefore use handfree system!

    Maybe it would be possible to use a url scheme for calling over whatsapp or messenger like whatsapp::call?number=9999999. is this possible with whatsapp or messenger?

    As I replied to another one, I think you misunderstood it, I want to be able to use whatsapp to call people handsfree over the internet rather than normal phone call. because for me it's much cheaper to call with internet.

    I know there USED to be a BlackBerry app for something like this called DriveSafe.ly. Not sure if they are still around and/or if this will work for you, BUT...
