WhatsApp Business Now Rolling Out on Android

WhatsApp Business Now Rolling Out on Android

Whatsapp for Business is not an individual app but it's the same app with all new features and the team expects their user base to become much stronger with this implementation.

Idema, who was a Facebook executive before he joined WhatsApp past year, said WhatsApp intends to charge businesses in some form in the future, but he said it was too soon to discuss when that would happen or what the future business services would look like. The company then also registered some businesses for the beta version of the app.

If you want to give WhatsApp Business a try and you live in one of the five countries mentioned above, you can download the app from the Play Store at the widget below or from APK Mirror. Business customers can also analyse messaging traffic to measure customer engagement. The app can coexist with your regular WhatsApp app, so you can keep the latter for your personal communication over your mobile number and the former for your business messages over your landline number. To make WhatsApp a better dedicated tool for businesses, the company has launched WhatsApp Business.

When talking with a business account, the message bubbles will be yellow.

There will also be added functionality of viewing statistics that will help businesses figure out what messages are working with customers and the ones that aren't. The Confirmed Accounts feature will require your company phone number to be validated, which is not that hard of a task.

For business owners, the app can help save time with smart messaging tools that bring with them quick replies - fast answers to frequently asked questions - greeting messages that introduce customers to your business, and away messages. We still do not know either how WhatsApp will monetize the new WhatsApp Business.

Titled as Whatsapp Business, the app aims to make it easy for customers to identify that it belongs to a brand and will have a detailed description of the product or service provider it is associated with. The company also confirmed that a version for iOS is coming too.
