In the popup window, users can enter the text of the message they want to send, as well as the recipient's phone number or contact name. The extension uses the WhatsApp Web API to send the message, so the user must have the WhatsApp Web app open and be logged in on their computer for the extension to work.

Once the user clicks the "Send" button in the popup window, the extension uses the WhatsApp Web API to send the message to the specified recipient. The user can then see the sent message in the WhatsApp Web app, as well as in the WhatsApp app on their mobile device (if they're logged in with the same account on both devices).
