WhatsApp by default does not provide an API to send messages, making it difficult to automate things, but where there is a will there is a way.
WhatsApp do support voice commands, and we can program our computers/mobiles to “Say” things programatically, which means, there’s still a way 🙂

Here’s the script I wrote:
#!/bin/bash sleep 5 set -x #echo on say -v Veena -a 46 "Okay Google" sleep 3 say -v Veena -a 46 "send whatsapp message to Gagan Deep Singh" sleep 7 say -v Veena -a 46 "Only a life lived for others is worth living." sleep 7 say -v Veena -a 46 "send"
