This will help you reply to some messages, without you having to open the app. However, WhatsApp doesn’t have this feature within the app, for this to work, you will need a third-party app. Also Read - Govt agency warns of dangerous WhatsApp bug that affects Android, iOS devices: Do this immediately

How to auto-reply on WhatsApp on your Android phone
Step 1: Open PlayStore and download the WhatsAuto app on your Android phone.
Step 2: Once you download the app, open it and finish the setup by giving permissions.
Step 3: Tap on the ‘Home’ section.
Step 4: Turn on the ‘Auto reply OFF’ button.
Step 5: Now, click on the pencil icon that’s next to the ‘Auto reply text’ button.
Step 6: Lastly, add the text you want to set for the automatic reply.
(You can either write some text or select from the pre-made options, which include useful ones such as I am busy, Text you later, Can’t talk now, and more.)
Now, if anyone messages you on WhatsApp or sends a ‘Hi,’ this app will message them automatically. This way, you won’t have to bother opening the app and texting each time someone messages you.
Such functionality is also available officially via the WhatsApp Business application. However, it’s a slightly advanced app and may not be feasible for everyone. But if that sounds good to you, you can try it out.
