Business WhatsApp

Post by abbby » Fri, 03 Jul 2020 9:39 am

What is the main difference between the business WhatsApp and standard WhatsApp? Did a quick download only to see the profile part where you can input an address, business type, and some other business profile information. Other than a business profile, are there other features the standard whatsapp does not have?

It's basically warning to users that the person reading the messages may not be an individual but a corporation. So when you see "business account" don't send sexy messages.

Whatsapp is owned by Facebook. Facebook is merging Messenger, Whatsapp and Instragram messaging so they can get even more info from their users. And advertise more.

Look at Signal or Telegram if you want to avoid a data grab.

If Facebook was Chinese it would have been banned in the US long ago.

WhatsApp has officially launched a new app, called WhatsApp Business. It's completely separate to the standard version of WhatsApp, but it works in much the same manner – only its purpose is connecting businesses and customers, rather than friends and family. The app is aimed at small business owners.if an standard whatsapp will not work in Business whatsapp then you can use this
Admins, you may want to look at this a-sap!

From what I understand, it’s meant for small business owners. Users can set automated messages, and include business information such as location and email. Other than that, I don’t think there’s much of a difference.
