Today we are going to explain how to set up auto reply messages on Android and how to use them when they call you. These are messages that you will be able to configure so that, when someone you cannot attend calls you, you can hang up on them by sending them a message to let them know that you are busy.
The way in which you will be able to configure this may change depending on the manufacturer. However, to offer a unified guide we are going to give you the step by step using the official Google calling app. Even so, the normal thing is that the place where you will find these options is usually always the same or similar also in the apps of other manufacturers such as Samsung.
Set up auto reply messages
The first thing you have to do is enter the call application of your mobile phone. As we have said, we are going to use the official Google. This application is the one you use to make calls, and it always usually comes on the main screen in the part where the icons are at the bottom.
Once inside the calling application, press the icon with the three dots in the upper right corner to display the options. In them, click on the Settings option that will appear in the menu to access the configuration of this application.
Once inside the phone application settings, you must click on the Quick responses option that will appear in them. This option may have a different name depending on the manufacturer and your calling app. For example, on a Samsung mobile it appears as Quick rejection messages.
Once you enter the Quick Answers option, you will have a series with several of them that come preconfigured on your mobile. If you want to edit any of them, simply click on the answer you want to change to proceed to replace it with a new one.
You will enter a window like the one in the screenshot, where the phrase you want to change will be written, and you only have delete or modify it to replace it with another more personal or better suited to the reasons why you may not take calls.
Use the messages when they call you
How to answer a call with these types of messages also varies depending on the manufacturer. But again, we are going to use the Google calling app. In it, when someone calls you and you want to let them know that you cannot answer, click on the Reply button that appears on the screen with a message icon. It is usually on top of the options to pick up or hang up the calls.
When you click on the Messages option, a window will open in which all the quick responses that you have configured will appear. The only thing left here is click on the answer you want to send to the person who calls you to explain why you are not picking up the phone.
Although before we have told you how to customize the answers, You can also write your own answer from this menu without having to configure anything. You will do it by pressing the button Write your own answer, although what you write here will not be saved, so if you want to use that answer more than once you will have to go to the configuration before.
And that’s it, if you have chosen to write your own message now a window will open in which you will be able to write it. When you finish, press the Send button. Once the message is sent you can hang up the call knowing that the person will know why you hung up on them.
