WhatsApp for Business: What You Need to Know

The regular WhatsApp messenger is used for one-on-one messaging, voice calls, and video calls via phone number. Users can also create group chats among several people.

If you own a small or medium-sized business, consider using WhatsApp Business. Here, you can provide customers with additional information about your business – your website, a brief description, working hours, when customers can expect a response, etc.

This free version of the WhatsApp app can be downloaded on the phones of four employees or used in a browser via WhatsApp Web.
