Don’t want to leave your friends or relatives unattended when they message you? Follow this tutorial to easily auto-reply messages in WhatsApp, Email, Telegram, etc.
We are well versed with the auto-reply functionality in Android. The feature lets your device auto-respond to missed/canceled calls with a pre-defined message. Such a feature is pretty efficient when you’re driving to the gym, taking a shower, and in-mid of any such situation. A message like “I’ll call you right back” is always more convenient and lets the person on the other end know that you’re aware that they tried to contact you. We mostly do this for the sake of courtesy, so that the person on the other end acknowledges that we are engaged somewhere else.
Well, this feature is mostly limited to the calls only and barely sees the light with text messages, let alone third-party apps like our favorite WhatsApp or Telegram. But wait, we still can auto-reply messages in WhatsApp, Telegram, Slack, Email, and much more by just using a single app for the job.

So now, if you’re driving, or working on the desk, Can’t Talk will automatically respond to messages received on any email or chat apps including WhatsApp, Telegram, Allo, Hangouts, Slack, etc. Practically, any app that allows direct notification replies (Supports inline reply actions) will be able to auto-reply messages using Can’t Talk.

Now, the default interface of the app should look something like in the image below. The first thing to do is switch ON the app toggle itself. It should be enabled by default, but in case it isn’t then turn on the toggle present on the top-right of the app window.
The first card in the app screen should be labeled “Auto reply to send”. This is the automatic message, that will be sent by default. So, just tap on the card and edit the message with the text you want it to convey and then press “SAVE”.
Next, you will need to configure the settings for the app to auto-reply messages in SMS, Calls, and third-party apps. So, switch on the desired toggles for SMS, Calls, and Apps. You will need to grant permission as you are prompted.
