How to Send WhatsApp Messages in Laravel 10

Integrating the WhatsApp API into Laravel

You can use a package laravel-chat-api in Laravel to send WhatsApp messages. You can easily communicate with the WhatsApp API with this package. 

Follow below steps:-

Step 1- Install the Package

Install the laravel-chat-api package using Composer:

composer require amirsanni/laravel-chat-api

Step 2- Configure the Package

After installing, you may need to publish the configuration file

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="AmirSanni\ChatApi\ChatApiServiceProvider"

This command will create a chat-api.php file in the config directory.

Step 3- Set Up WhatsApp API Credentials

Open the config/chat-api.php file and set your WhatsApp API credentials:

return [
    'base_url' => env('CHAT_API_BASE_URL', ''),
    'token' => env('CHAT_API_TOKEN', 'your-chat-api-token'),

Step 4- Send WhatsApp Message

Now you can send WhatsApp message from within your Laravel application using the ChatApi facade:

use AmirSanni\ChatApi\Facades\ChatApi;

// ...

$message = [
    'phone' => 'whatsapp_number',
    'body' => 'Your message here',

$response = ChatApi::sendMessage($message);

// Handle the response as needed

Make sure to replace whatsapp_number with the actual WhatsApp number you want to send the message to.

Step 5- Handling Responses

The response from the API call will provide information about the sent message. You need to handle the response according to your requirements.
