WHATSAPP BUSINESS: WHAT IT IS FOR AND HOW TO CONFIGURE IT




WhatsApp business is very similar to the WhatsApp messaging we all know, but it has some additional features that are useful for companies.

WhatsApp does not lose its main function or that of messaging, but as mentioned before it has additional functions that allow companies to stay in touch with their customers, through interaction tools that can simplify and improve the work.


HOW DO YOU INSTALL WHATSPP BUSINESS?

First of all, WhatsApp Business is available for both android and iphone.

To download Whatsapp Business from Android, you will need to access the Play Store app, in the text field you will need to type Whatsapp Business and press the Search button.

As soon as you see the search results, locate the WhatsApp Business application, which has an icon with a cartoon symbol and a white "B" in the center. Pay attention to any imitations: the official application is developed by WhatsApp Inc.

To install it, click on the Install button and then on the Accept button.


If you are using an Iphone, you can install Whatsapp Business by opening the App Store and then proceed as explained for Android phones.


HOW DO I CONFIGURE WHATSAPP BUSINESS?

The first thing you need to do to start using WhatsApp Business is to configure your phone number in the app.

When opening the app, the first thing to do is to accept the terms and conditions of the service: then press the Accept and continue button to go to the next step, where you will have to enter and verify the phone number you want to associate to WhatsApp Business.

Keep in mind that you can also use your company's landline number and that you can use both WhatsApp and WhatsApp Business at the same time on your device. In the latter case, however, each application must be connected to a different phone number. You cannot therefore use WhatsApp and WhatsApp Business on the same number.

Then wait for the confirmation of the phone number through the verification code. Subsequently, you also consent to requests from WhatsApp that refer to the ability to send messages, access your contacts, your photos and all the multimedia content on your device. Then press the Continue and Allow buttons when prompted.
