Can Google Assistant or Siri Send WhatsApp Messages

In this post, you’ll see the steps to send WhatsApp messages using Google Assistant or Siri. You can also make it do other things regarding WhatsApp, such as reading messages and making calls.

You’ll also view the steps to schedule WhatsApp messages. Let’s start.

Google Assistant

Ensure your Google Assistant is working on your Android phone before proceeding.

Send a Message on WhatsApp

Say “Okay, Google” on your Android phone, and Google Assistant will pop out.

Say “Send a WhatsApp message,” and it’ll ask to whom you want to send a message.

Once you tell that, it’ll ask you for the message. Provide it.

It’ll ask whether you want to send it. Say “Send,” and it’ll send the message. You need to do this step one time only. Later, it’ll send the message without asking.

Notes:

  • You can use this command too to do the above task: Say, “Hey, Google,” and say, “Send a WhatsApp message to (contact name).”
  • You can’t send a message to the group using the Assistant.
  • Google Assistant can’t send scheduled messages on WhatsApp.
  • You can make Google Assistant launch the WhatsApp app by saying these commands: “Hey, Google” and “Open WhatsApp.”

You can make it send a WhatsApp voice message, and here’s how: Say “Hey, Google” and say “WhatsApp audio message.”

It’ll ask for the contact’s name. Provide it. It’ll ask you to confirm, do it.

Now provide your WhatsApp voice message. It’ll ask whether to send it. Say Send, and that’s all.

Read an Unread Message on WhatsApp

To make it read unread WhatsApp messages, use these commands: “Hey, Google” and “Read WhatsApp messages.”

The Assistant will ask you to provide permission to access notifications. Provide it. Remember, you need to do this only once.

Repeat the above commands.

Google Assistant will read the unread messages from each conversation and ask whether you want to reply.

Make a WhatsApp Call

If you want to make a WhatsApp video and voice calls using Google Assistant, follow these steps:

Say “Hey, Google” and “Make a WhatsApp call” if you want to make a voice call.

Say “WhatsApp video call” if you want to make a video call.

It’ll ask you for the contact’s name. Provide it, and it’ll ask you to confirm.

If you didn’t provide microphone access to WhatsApp, you’d be asked to provide it now.

Siri

Before proceeding with the steps, you must activate Siri on your iPhone and allow it to access your WhatsApp data.

Here’s how: Open the “Settings” app and select “Siri & Search.” Enable the “Listen for Hey Siri” option.

Scroll down until you find “WhatsApp” and hit it. Turn on the “Use with Ask Siri” option.

Read Unread WhatsApp Messages

To get Siri to read your unread WhatsApp messages out loud, you need to say, “Read unread WhatsApp messages” after saying, “Hey Siri.”

Siri will read the messages for you from every conversation and question whether you would like to reply.

Note: To make Siri open the WhatsApp app, say “Hey Siri,” and then this command: Open WhatsApp.

Send a WhatsApp Message

Say “Hey Siri,” and once it pops up, say, “Send WhatsApp message to (name of contact or group).”

It’ll ask for your message and tell it. You can now see a preview of your WhatsApp message.

Say “Send” to send the message.

Note: Using Siri, you can’t send WhatsApp voice messages.

Make a WhatsApp Call

Siri can make a WhatsApp voice call to the one you like, and here’s how:

Say, “Hey Siri.” Say, “Make a WhatsApp call to (name of the contact or group).”

To make a WhatsApp video call, you need to say, “Make a WhatsApp video call to (contact or group name).”

Configure the app and tap the “+” icon in the bottom right on the main screen.

Hit “WhatsApp” and provide accessibility permission.

Return to the app. In the “Schedule To” section, choose the one you prefer. The available ones are “Contacts,” “Status,” and “WhatsApp Broadcast Lists.”

Tap the “WhatsApp” beneath “Add Recipients” and provide the “Display over other apps” permission.

Return to the app and tap “WhatsApp” again. Hit “OK” in the popup, and you’re in WhatsApp.

You can also select the group if that’s what you like. For contacts, tap the green icon in the bottom right of the “Chats” tab and choose the one you prefer.
