Hello all ! im trying to send automated messages to whatsapp when a record is matches conditions. 

Ive been trying to do it via Twilio, but having a hard time, any suggestions?

Perhaps try using Zapier or Make for this?  Seems like they both provide connections for this:

If you have a WhatsApp Business account, you can use Make’s WhatsApp Business integrations to do that.

It is not recommended to use Zapier. Make is INFINITELY more powerful & customizable than Zapier, yet it is SIGNIFICANTLY CHEAPER than Zapier.

I wrote an entire post here comparing Make vs. Zapier. https://air.tableforums.com/t/make-vs-zapier/737 

If you’ve never used Make before, I’ve assembled a bunch of Make training resources in this thread.

For example, here is how you would instantly trigger a Make automation from Airtable.

I also give live demonstrations of how to use Make in many of my Airtable podcast appearances here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLqssva4liHRwHhQIpTXekG8WObEoyC2F1
