WhatsApp reveals plans to launch business accounts in the coming weeks


WhatsApp has just announced that it has already started working to implement some business features to its messaging application. The company owned by Facebook is expected to launch enterprise accounts in the coming months, but for now, WhatsApp is just testing these features.

Not many details have been provided on how they will exactly work, but WhatsApp revealed that it will introduce verified business accounts, which will allow people to identify a business from another person.

Furthermore, the company announced that it is now testing different tools that are now part of a free WhatsApp Business application for small companies and an enterprise solution for much larger companies that operate at a large scale.


Finally, WhatsApp says that its business solution will provide enterprise customers with useful notifications such as flight times, delivery confirmations, as well as other updates. It remains to be seen when exactly the new WhatsApp Business app will be released and how many of its features will be hidden behind a paywall.

It was great piece of business buying WhatsApp. Everyone made fun of Facebook. In 5 years from now they will all look very stupid.
