What are WeChat Template Messages?

WeChat Service Official Accounts can push out several types of messages to followers such as welcome messages, keyword replies, broadcast messages, and template messages and most of the messages have limits as to how or when they can be sent.

Template message templates can be easily accessed in the WeChat backend in the template library by typing keywords in the search bar to find relevant options.
