WhatsApp Business app is meant for small businesses so unless you own one, this might be of no use to you.

WhatsApp officially announced its new WhatsApp Business app in selected Markets, including Mexico, Indonesia, Italy, the U.S and the U.K, before rolling out for everyone.

Though the company has prioritized Android after finding this is where businesses use WhatsApp more prominently, it plans to support other platforms such as iOS in the future. This can later become a Confirmed Account - like those launched a year ago - once WhatsApp checks the phone number details match your business.

Well for starters it can open up revenue possibilities for WhatsApp, which has over 1.3 billion users in the world. Over time, some businesses will have Confirmed Accounts once it's confirmed that the account phone number matches the business phone number.

A Business account with a grey question mark badge in its profile, however, indicates that the account hasn't been confirmed or verified by WhatsApp.

WhatsApp has launched a brand new app that's specifically made for small businesses.

WhatsApp Business as the name suggests plans to make simpler for smaller medium businesses to connect with the customers

WhatsApp Business will be a separate application from the instant messaging platform which will authorize businesses to communicate with their consumer/client on a personal level in the form of a chat. The tools also include greeting messages that can introduce a customer to the business and away messages to let the customer know if the business isn't available.

As of now the exclusive app for SMEs is available at Google Play Store. Both the WhatsApp Messenger and WhatsApp Business apps can be used on the same device, according to The Verge.

Already, it's forked APKs were out but now the official version of the Whatsapp Business is available from the Play Store.

WhatsApp Business will mark your account as a Business Account once you're logged in.

You can also block and report WhatsApp Business users. This will come in handy for businesses who want to see what messaging content seems to engage customers most successfully. So we can expect the app in India in coming weeks.
