  • Then flip the switch beside the app on. It will turn blue.
  • Finally, click Allow.
  • To create a new rule, click the blinking + sign.
  • Then on the Rule screen, if you want to reply to all messages, click ALL.
  • You will receive a notification that A asterisk (*) was set as Received Messages to reply to all messages. If you do not want to see this message each time you click ALL, check the box Don’t show again. Then click OK. A asterisk (*) will now appear beneath Received message.
  • Beneath Reply message, type the message you want to auto reply. If you wish to include your location, click the location button (highlighted in the image below).

The App has another feature that allows you to insert variables. For instance you can auto insert the date, the recipient’s WhatsApp name and more…
