WhatsApp Business app launched for small businesses in India

Very few of you know that WhatsApp has launched their WhatsApp Business App on 23rd Jan, 2018 in India. They have launched the App for Android users only. It was built with the small business owner in mind.

So today I am discussing on WhatsApp Business App to you and it’s facilities.

You can simply download the App from Google Play Store for free and can install the App as like as WhatsApp but you have to register your business WhatsApp with different no. And you can run your personal WhatsApp and business WhatsApp parallelly. You don’t have to install Parallel Space App.

Now I’m providing the difference between WhatsApp and WhatsApp Business.

Difference 1: Logo

Difference 2: Dashboard

Difference 3: Profile Information

The best thing they have added is business information with map location. User can access more of your information. Another best thing is automatic messaging tools.

You can set your customized Away message, Greeting Message and Quick replies.

Business Account Type Information:

WhatsApp also blogged about business account type. They provided three type of business account.

  • Verified. WhatsApp has verified that an authentic brand owns this account. A verified account has a green checkmark badge in its profile.
  • Confirmed. WhatsApp has confirmed that the phone number of this account matches the phone number for this business. A confirmed account has a gray checkmark badge in its profile.
  • Business account. This account is using the WhatsApp Business app, but hasn’t been confirmed nor verified by WhatsApp. A business account has a gray question mark badge in its profile.
