A beta version of “WhatsApp Business” has been made available for iPhone users. This variant of WhatsApp is a free-to-download communication tool specifically designed for small businesses.
Launched in January 2018, “WhatsApp Business” had only been made available on Android devices until now.
In a tint colour of darker blue, the beta app for iPhone includes “Messaging Tools” for businesses like automated greeting and away messages, quick replies and the “Recipients” feature was also set to allow users to choose specific recipients for a particular message.
Along with the option allowing users to migrate their existing WhatsApp accounts and contacts to a “WhatsApp Business” account, the app also enables users to customize their business profiles and configure business hours with options in the Edit menu.
This beta version is available for all the countries.
WhatsApp announced in January that WhatsApp Business has an active user base of more than five million people. The platform is used by businesses to support customers, grow their businesses and serve their communities all over the world.
