Demo

Note

This is for saved contact numbers only if you want to send whatsapp bulk messages to unsaved or without saving the contact numbers. You may prefer another repository.

Important

  • If this repository helped you to understand at least something new please give star this repository which motivates me to work further for the similar kinds for projects.

Prerequisites

In order to run the python script, your system must have the following programs/packages installed and the contact number should be saved in your phone (You can use bulk contact number saving procedure of email). There is a way without saving the contact number but has the limitation to send the attachment.

Approach

  • User scans web QR code to log in into the WhatsApp web application.
  • The script reads a customized message from excel sheet.
  • The script reads rows one by one and searches that contact number in the web search box if the contact number found on WhatsApp then it will send a configured message otherwise It reads next row.
  • Loop execute until and unless all rows complete.

Note: If you wish to send an image instead of text you can write attachment selection python code.
