Plugins option will be free and it will easier to download and install it. Two of the best plugins I can recommend is Mobile Sharebar plugin and AddToAny plugin.
This blog post from Wpmudev will explain how to use this two plugins in detail:
Disadvantage of WordPress plugins
- Extra overload of a plugin just to have WhatsApp share button
- You cannot customize it separately for desktop and mobile mode; WhatsApp mode in desktop does not make any sense
- Some of the plugins may not have all the social media including WhatsApp in mobile mode
Using SumoMe –
This is my favorite tool to create WhatsApp button for my mobile version of the blog. It is very easy to setup.
Let me explain some of the features of SumoMe app:
- Very easy to setup
