Is there any app or any way to reject a call with a message sent via WhatsApp? Normally when we get a call there is an option to reject it with a pre-written SMS, but I was wondering if you can use WhatsApp to send these template messages.

  • IMHO: That's very much up to WhatsApp to support such a feature. If it doesn't, file a feature request for it upstream.

  • I think part of the point of blocking someone is not letting them know you've done so. If the blocked number is a bot/machine it would probably won't do much with a block message. either way it's basic enough feature to request it.

Looking at WhatsApp FAQ, it looks like this feature is currently NOT Supported by WhatsApp.

In Summary, When someone calls you, you will see an incoming WhatsApp call screen. And you can tap on the message icon on the call screen to decline the call with a quick message.

But for Above steps to work, the Incoming call HAS TO BE WhatsApp Call and NOT the regular cellular call.

Hence, currently user needs to use native/in-built app Like SMS/Hangout to Reject call with message.


There is a app for android to cater your need.


What it does?

  1. Install the app and enable accessibility for BRB.

  2. Enable service.

  3. Once you reject a call, the app helps you to compose a personalised WhatsApp message on your contacts chat window. You just have to tap send.

  4. Apart from this, it reminds you to


If your phone is rooted, you can use Tasker to do this. Set up a profile that runs on missed call and triggers a task that runs the shell commands listed here: (http://tasker.wikidot.com/whatsapp-send-message). Just ignore the AutoVoice commands used to get input and hard-code the message you want sent.


I made this app with the exact requirement as yours, I hoope you like it
