Whatsapp Integration using Chat-Api

Hello everyone! :smile:
I am currently working on integrating rocket chat with WhatsApp using the Chat-Api’s unofficial API. While I know that rocket chat integrates easily with Twilio’s official WhatsApp broker, Twilio’s cost per message can easily add up. So that’s my main motivation with this project.

The project is currently under development, and I can exchange text messages between the two platforms. The multimedia message exchange is currently under development though as I’m having a bit of trouble with Chat-Api.

Anyways, here’s my project on Github.

I tested the integration and noticed that after the second contact every message opens a new room.

While I haven’t removed all the finished chats, it doesn’t stop opening new rooms.

We are offering this service in with a simple bot integration in Rocket Chat

It even allows you to open new chats, not like the API offered by Facebook where you can only receive new customers
