How to send a text in python WhatsApp

Posted July 12, 2021 125 views

I was creating a program to automatically send messages via WhatsApp, but I have a very annoying problem.
I want to send a large text for dissemination, when I put the program to work, it opens WhatsApp, I scan the QR CODE, it searches the groups and sends messages, but sends it as if it were several messages. What I want is for you to send a message with the entire text.
I live in Brazil and I’m using google translator to write this question, sorry for the spelling errors.

# navegar até o WhatsApp web
driver = webdriver.Chrome(ChromeDriverManager().install())
driver.get('https://web.whatsapp.com/')
time.sleep(15)

# Definir contatos e grupos e msg para ser enviado
contatos = ['test 1', 'test 2', 'test 3']
mensagem = '''

Hello,

According to the official WhatsApp documentation, the maximum limit for text updates is 700 characters. If the message you are sending is longer than that, then it would explain why it gets split into multiple ones.
