WhatsApp auto-reply is a boon for busy users. It goes without saying that people have accepted WhatsApp as a serious chat option and nearly discarded the default messaging app on their Android devices. However, there are many friends in your phone book that keep sending unnecessary messages, videos, audios, images and more. While you cannot block them (they are friends, right?), you can always tell them that you are busy and will reply later. But how can you do this? Android users can set auto-reply messages in WhatsApp on their Android phones.

Since WhatsApp doesn’t offer any default automatic message sending feature, users have to rely on some third-party Android apps to set an auto-reply to show your friends your busy status. The need to automatically reply via message arises from our social connectivity, which doesn’t allow us to ignore a friend or colleague. Thankfully, some apps can help you auto-reply WhatsApp messages on Android device.
