User replies to your message

Users can respond to a specific message on WhatsApp. To understand the context of a message reply, we include the context object. The context object provides the Gupshup message-id(property: gsId) of the message the user has replied to and the WhatsApp message-id(property: id) of the original message.

The following payload is an example of an inbound message when a user replies to a business message.

  "app": "DemoApp",
  "timestamp": 1590854464792,
  "version": 2,
