That WhatsApp was working on a new application focused on business profile management is not a secret at the moment, but today we're uploading with the app available on the Google Play Store
So far it's in beta, although anyone can register and try it out. It is officially called WhatsApp Business and serves what the name indicates, manages the presence of a company in the popular messaging network, with some modifications to the normal application.
Two WhatsApp on the same cell phone, officially
One of the advantages of this application is that it can be officially installed together with the classic application, which allows us to have two phone numbers at a time on the same smartphone.

This is useful if we do not want to load two numbers or if we load them but with a Dual SIM device. Obviously, we need the second number to register, but both can work on the same phone.
Exclusive functions for companies
We can do the same actions as in WhatsApp Messenger, but WhatsApp Business (WhatsApp for Business) has several company-designed news .
To begin with the user profile is much more detailed . We can put information about our store or service to help customers. Such things as web page, store location or contact information.

In addition, unlike the personal number, we do not have the obligation to always be pending because we have available absence messages texts sent automatically.
We do not need a cell phone number. This is one of the most interesting news is that we can assign the fixed number we want in our profile so that we can not connect any secondary cell if we do not want to. To do this, we will have to choose the "Call Me" option to receive a code through the phone call during the verification process.
Of course we will use WhatsApp Web as in the normal version of the application.
The web version of WhatsApp is really useful and we will explain here the 10 advantages that this client has of computer versus the mobile version.
Import of existing data
WhatsApp knows that many companies use the normal application to communicate with their customers, so it launches this release. To facilitate the change from one application to another allowed to import into WhatsApp for Business a backup that we do in the conventional application . That way, we can keep all the conversations we had, as well as the attachments.
That yes, will not be able to do it unlike to move a company account to a normal one, so it's convenient that we can keep a backup of the personal profile we use for the company before doing the migration.
We can download the app from the Google Store simply by registering us on the beta program and using a device with Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich or higher.
Requires Android 4.0.3 and above
