WBOT is a free Whatsapp auto reply bot for Windows to automatically reply to specific messages. This bot uses Whatsapp web and uses a JSON file to identify a message and send a reply. In the JSON file, you basically, specify a piece of text to look in received message and a corresponding reply text. For example, you can use this bot to automate replies to birthday wishes. You just have to login using Whatsapp web and configure messages that you want to reply to automatically and let it run in background. As long as our phone is connected, it will keep sending replies to the specified messages.
If you get a lot of similar messages such us “Hi”, “Hello”, “Good morning”, or any other than you can use this bot. You will not have to open app again and again to reply to these small messages. The bot will automatically encounter them and send the reply that you have defined. The JSON file that it uses to look for the incoming messages is simple and you can easily modify that. However, if you don’t know JSON then you can use some JSON editors for that. After the bot starts running, you can minimize and get busy in some other work.
