        1. you're able to use regex
        2. spaces will be replaced by
          [ \t]*
          -> spaces doesn't matter
      • little tips:

        1. some languages have different suffixes for example take this trigger sentence
          schreib(e|en|t|te){0,1} [name] [text]
          this will match for "schreib contact name text", "schreibe contact name text", "schreiben contact name text", etc.
          means the end can be "e", "en", "t" or "te"
          have to occur at least zero-times and one-time at most
          -> it's very useful if google now misunderstood you
        2. if it's to difficult just write rules like you're talking for example
          send [text] to [name]
  • android wear
    • incoming messages are shown on your smartwatch
    • you're able to create own predefined responses
      will be replaced by the contact name of the sender
    • [premium] create different predefined responses for each contact
    • buttons
      • mark read
      • quick reply
        do a quick reply by your voice or predefined responses,

      • google now
        use the whatsapp commands from seebye chat heads
        (difference to quick reply: misinterpreted commands won't be sent)

I just want to mention that the app needs root rights to work with messages of WhatsApp.
But nonroot users still can use the app for sms.

Accessibility service

Some users of Samsung devices already know it.
Samsung created a bug which lets your phone talk.
(Here you can read about.)
All in all it will not be a problem, my app will tell you how to fix the bug.

If you want to get notified about new apps, new big features or just want to like seebye, you can follow me on Twitter, Facebook or Google+.

I'm looking forward to get feedback from you.

Hey folks,
today i want to show my app.

The app is called Seebye Chat Heads.
It's an app in the beta state.
And the app needs root rights.
So there could be some bugs.
With the app you're able to use the chat heads functions of Facebook in WhatsApp.

I'm sorry. I'm not able to post it clickable.


looks nice.
but, how to change icon size?

Go to the side menu.
There's a point in the list called icon size.
Now use two fingers to zoom, just like you zoom in and out in the gallery.

Thank you.
FB Messenger already supports chat heads, doesn't it?
But i thinked about integrating sms support.
So i will think about integrating more messenger.
But i haven't decided it yet.

I like your app, just hate it that i can't disable the notification, and that the order of whatsapp contact is just how i don't want them... never used on top....

It is a good idea
Appreciate your work bro!!! :) :)
Some Suggestions From my side
App is a bit slow
Chat heads are not flexible enough as in fb chat heads
No popup turns out whenever new message arrives...

Pinch zoom, right?

Can you make toggle to zoom in or zoom out, because i have very old devices that doesnt support multitouch.

Thank you :)

I was actually just coming here to say this.. If you're interested you can add in an extension to your app, so you can take advantage of FN's chatheads and integrate the Whatsapp functionality.
PM if you're interested, you can also find the library here: https://code.google.com/p/fn-extensions-library/

Regardless though, great job. I looked into this myself and there was definitely no simple way to do it so kudos to you :)

Great APP, needs to get way more popular!

However, I have one problem: if i am typing, my keybord is above the typing area, so i can not see what i am typing.. Is that a common issue?
