WhatsApp business is not officially launched, but the company has given out some details regarding the same. The confirmation for this feature has come from WhatsApp FAQ page. There are talks that some of the official business or brand accounts will have a green badge next to a contact’s name. This is applicable to most of the business accounts. Some of the brand accounts which have been verified by WhatsApp will see a green badge next to a contact. This goes on to prove that WhatsApp has made it official that the phone details of the contact belong to business account.
WhatsApp has also added a feature of the yellow chat inside the chat window. But, you cannot delete these text from the chat.
Also, if you do have a business contact or phone number saved in your address book, the name you will see is the name which you have already saved in your address book. But, for instance, if you don’t have a business contact saved in your address book, the name you will see is the name you’ve picked for themselves.
On the other hand, if you would like to stop a business getting in touch with you, you can block them.
As per WABetainfo, the WhatsApp beta for the Android is a support system for apparently the Verified Business accounts, which will see a green tick mark beside the profile. The feature for verification is limited to only business who are part of the pilot system.
As per the new update, business will also set working hours to leave an AWAY message as unavailable and try to manage any automatic message coming your way. A business account may have many websites attached to it. If that is the case, there will be a ‘Show More’ button to read all details of the Business, including Working hours and the business category.
