What are Quick Reply Buttons?

Quick Replies are buttons attached below a WhatsApp message clicking which allows your user to send a message without typing it out.

E.g. For taking customer feedback, you can add Quick Replies at the end of the message such as, "I am very happy", "I am Satisfied", "Not Happy"
