What’s up with WhatsApp?

Simple, secure, and reliable messaging are the things WhatsApp oath to provide with their users.

Whatsapp is one of the family apps of Facebook which let you send messages, call someone (voice or video), and send voice record in a fast and simple way. Sounds familiar, eh?

Comparing to Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp uses a personal phone number that is accessible even on Desktop!

WhatsApp Business App

WhatsApp actually offers an intelligent way to manage a business and improve their customer relationship. It helps businesses keep connected with their customers with automated tools such as quick response messages, and a catalog that can showcase products and services.

Small businesses who were affected by the economic changes due to the global pandemic that, sadly, still happening as of writing are starting to re-open again and planning to expand their business online because of the new norm. With this in mind, WhatsApp started to roll new features that will improve customer experience using advanced tools in their WhatsApp Business API.

With over 50 million active businesses that are using the WhatsApp Business API, the new features aim to help them to be discovered easily and let their customer review everything they offer.

QR Codes

Before the new version update, WhatsApp users who are interested in a brand needed to add their phone number in their contact list before they can start a conversation.

In the new update, customers can now scan a QR code to initiate a conversation easily. No more typing and searching phone numbers!

While businesses can post their QR code on their storefront, product packaging, and even on receipt to get easily discovered and receive an inquiry.
