I couple things might’ve happened… was there ATC at EGLL at the time?

ATIS is a frequency which you only listen to to get airport information. You tune into ATIS before any other frequency when entering an airport.

You only tune in, listen to a repetitive piece of information on the airport, and tune out.

Have a look here in what it all means

Because you just listen to it. Your not supposed to reply nobody is controlling that frequency

Because you don’t need to. All you do is listen to it

Because, as @Ecoops123 said, ATIS is only a weather reporting and airport information service. You don’t transmit anything on freq, you simply listen to the information so you know the current conditions of the airport. :)

does it speak for me?

ohhhhhh
thanks

No. It tells you information. Watch the videos up there

It should automatically give you airport informations if the ATC has published it

It is controlled by controllers. The only automatic commands is it sending a continuous message every few seconds, and the weather. All the other aoprt details like runways and notams are added by controllers when they open a frequency.
