Being a popular messaging service it is used by many official businesses & individual users. For businesses, it becomes very necessary to reply to potential customers even if you are not available. And here are some situations where individual users want to set auto-reply messages just for fun.
Well for both conditions there is a workaround using both official and unofficial methods. In this post, we’ll help you set up/enable the WhatsApp auto-reply feature.
There are two ways to set up auto-replies – Using WhatsApp Business and Using Third-Party Application.
