WhatsApp Business app made its way into the world in 2017 and it has finally reached India. And who was this app tailored for? Like the name suggests, the app is tailor made for business owners. WhatsApp Business app, unlike the original WhatsApp app, is purely business oriented. With the help of this app, business owners can have a larger reach on their customers, by providing services through the Business app.

Should both businesses and customers have WhatsApp Business app installed on their smartphone for communication between them to take place? The answer is no. Customers need not have the Business app. They can use the regular WhatsApp app whereas the business runners need to use the Business app to interact with their customers to provide services. This is a huge advantage to businesses because now, they do not have to spend resources and time to develop and maintain their own business websites or apps.
