Telegram respond to text not command

Hey! all i’m in the process of migrating my Google Hangouts integration to Telegram and its going pretty smoothly. I migrated alot of my intent_scripts to automations but I am running into trouble with text msgs

With hangouts I had it so if someone wrote specific words it would call a script ex if someone wrote “the feels” HASS would respond with

      text: I know right?!

Is there anyway to do this similarly with telegram? or does everything have to be commands with the preceding “/”
