Watomatic - Auto Reply for WhatsApp and Facebook is free and open-source software developed by Deekshith Allamaneni. It’s an auto reply communication app, suitable for everyone and compatible with Android 5.0 and higher.
The developer wants to help people to stop using WhatsApp and Facebook due to privacy concerns. Since a large number of people are using these platforms, there’s potential for your information to be compromised. Watomatic solves this issue by sending an auto-reply to messages you receive, notifying your contacts how to contact you in the future.
This utility sends an auto-reply to messages you receive on WhatsApp or Facebook. You can also choose a reply frequency, such as the number of responses per user per day. It also lets you send automatic replies to group chats. The app is free with no ads or tracking of your activities. You can use it as an autoresponder when on vacation or if you’re out of range for a while.
How it works
Watomatic uses Facebook and WhatsApp notifications to send automatic replies. Make sure to enable notifications for these platforms and disable the fingerprint lock for WhatsApp.
The developer has kept this app open-source and encourages other developers to join him in its development.
What users think
Many users are making valuable suggestions. One suggestion is to separate the auto-reply functionality for WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger. The reason is that users don’t always want others to see their phone numbers on Facebook. Users also like to disable auto-replies for specific contacts and create custom replies for different messages. The main downside is that auto-replies on group chats can appear spammy.
Auto-reply to messages
Use Watomatic to create auto-reply messages to let people know you’re leaving WhatsApp and how to contact you in the future. You can also limit the number of responses to one per user per day. Additionally, the app doesn’t track your activities.
