On various occasions the business would have the flexibility to send out greetings and wishes to customers even when the firm is busy. The firm will also have the option to send out and receive messages on desktop.
WhatsApp Business App also aims to mark some business accounts as official or confirmed ones in the coming time.

The App also consists of Live location feature which will ensure that the company can share their live location with the customers. The firm will also have the flexibility to make voice and video calls. Like WhatsApp, the business app also allows the “end-to-end encryption” feature for messages.
