WhatsApp changed the way people communicate with each other when it was launched and nearly everyone who uses a smartphone has WhatsApp nowadays. The interesting thing that happened when the chatting app became popular is the fact that both big and small businesses have created their own WhatsApp accounts so that they could get feedback from their customers much easier. Seeing this, the developers of WhatsApp have decided to create a special version of the app called WhatsApp Business.
Introducing: WhatsApp Business
The difference between WhatsApp Business and the original version of the app is that WhatsApp Business offers a plethora of powerful features that make it easier for business owners to get in touch with their customers and vice-versa. Having a WhatsApp Business account is almost mandatory for any company that wants to have an online presence.
WhatsApp Business 2.19.55 Beta Update
Nonetheless, the reason why WhatsApp Business is making headlines on our website today is because it has just been updated. Just like the original version of the app, WhatsApp Business benefits from full-fledged developer support. This means that WhatsApp Business is updated on almost a daily basis with software tweaks, bug fixes and sometimes, even new features.
The latest update for WhatsApp Business sports the 2.19.55 beta version number and it is being rolled out via OTA (over the air) channels to all WhatsApp Business users who are enrolled in the beta program. Now that we have presented the latest update, let’s go ahead and check out are the new features that it introduces.
- Security fix for CVE-2019-3568.
- New features on WhatsApp Web. You can now view label indicators and filter by labels using the chat list filtering icon when using WhatsApp Web. Filtering by unread messages, groups, and broadcast lists isn’t supported on WhatsApp Web.
- Share short links (wa.me/your_number). Create and share short links that make it easy for customers to start a chat with you.
