How to create a Whatsapp bot?

Hello, I have a question about the Whatsapp node.
I would like to create a Whatsapp bot that use OpenAi, but I see that you can messages but not “reading” new ones.
How does it work?



It looks like your topic is missing some important information. Could you provide the following if applicable.

  • n8n version:
  • Database (default: SQLite):
  • n8n EXECUTIONS_PROCESS setting (default: own, main):
  • Running n8n via (Docker, npm, n8n cloud, desktop app):
  • Operating system:

Hey @theRAGEhero,

At the moment the WhatsApp node doesn’t support getting messages but you could use the HTTP Request node to implement the API calls needed if you are comfortable with following those. We should have a WhatsApp trigger node available soon though which may help.
