Although WhatsApp Business was introduced back in September, at that moment the app was available only for beta. And now, the complete app is officially launching for Android in 5 different countries with rollout in other countries shortly coming in the next couple of weeks.
As the name implies, WhatsApp for business is a dedicated app for business. In addition to basic messaging features, WhatsApp Business comes with several unique features. For instance, although the original WhatsApp requires user to use a mobile number, WhatsApp Business supports landline number along with mobile number. Apart from that, users will be able to create a special badge and profile where they can list opening hours, a website, category, location, and a description. Moreover, like other business messaging services, users can create an automated response to welcome users.
As mentioned earlier, the app is available in selected countries with Indonesia, Italy, Mexico, the UK, and the US becoming first to experience the new service. If you are interested in using the app and currently live in one of these countries, you can go to Play Store to download the app.
