In this article we will be explaining how to Broadcast Messages to multiple recipients from Google Sheets using the WhatsApp Web platform.

For this, we will be using a Workflow in Automa, a Google Chrome extension that enables you to automate repetitive tasks by using various types of built-in blocks and connecting them in a sequence. You can use it for many tasks such as auto-filling forms, broadcasting messages, scraping data from websites, taking screenshots and more.
