How to automatically reply to media messages?
Replying to media messages is quite simple. Just check your messenger's status bar notification once you receive a media message. It contains the text that you can use in your AutoResponder rule.
Note that the exact text depends on the messenger and language of your device.
So, to automatically reply to a location message, you just need to enter the following text including the pushpin emoji in your AutoResponder rule, which is set to Exact match:
For automatic replies to photos the same applies as for locations. However, the text in the notifications may disappear once the photo has been automatically downloaded by the messenger. Take note of the text before the photo is downloaded or temporarily disable the auto-download of media in the settings of your messenger. Here you can enter the following in combination with the Exact Match option:
Voice messages are a special case. The duration is often included in the text. Therefore the Exact Match option does not work here. Instead, use Pattern Matching with the following text:

If you don't have Premium, you can probably also use Similarity Match:
