Contest Brief

Here is my problem. I use Whatsapp for effectively getting in touch with various vendors for my supplies. Its far better than email, and SMS. However Whatsapp was not built for that but for personal messages, so it forces you to store the numbers in contacts before broadcasting them. Which does not fit my purpose because, I don't know them, all I do is business inquiries with them, with 99% it might only be a one time messaging. For this, I dont want to sacrifice my personal info or mess my already bloated contacts in the phone.

Current workaround I do is painful. For each number I am individually sending message via an android app called Whatsdirect which allows you to send message to any person without saving his contact. Whatsdirect or such similar apps are not complete. The just open the chat window with that particular number as target, and your message in message text box in Whatsapp and you will have to manually click send. I am ok with this if sending for one or two persons. But in bulk, this is very time consuming process.

Your output could be a chrome extension or app or firefox extension etc. I am even ok if I need to install virtual android like NOX to get this done. But come up with a script that could ease this process as much as possible.

For eg you could add the numbers as temporary contacts, create group of them, and then remove the numbers from contacts. Then I just have to click on Send in group chat window. This is one example I could think but unleash your capabilities.

Your script should take below inputs:
1. A text box or excel like data column taking all numbers (Typically I would paste from another source, so shall be copy-paste friendly)
2. A text box to enter the message.

Then a send button or series of action you facilitate (creating group etc like I quoted above).

Best: Click on send, and script taking care of sending to all numbers via Whatsapp web. (fully automated)
OK: Workaround solutions like group I said (semi automated)

    Human behaviour: For eg, you could choose random delay (between 1 sec to 30 sec) between message being sent to each number (if sending one by one) or if by creating gropu, consider adding numbers slowly in gropu (like a human do), and send.

    If you think Whatsapp bot might block, please try mimicking human behavior in sending message. This is for personal usage, not for commercial purpose as I already explained.
