WhatsApp Business from Facebook

WhatsApp Business enables you to have a business presence on WhatsApp, communicate more efficiently with your customers, and help you grow your business. 

If you have separate business and personal phone numbers, you can have both WhatsApp Business and WhatsApp Messenger installed on the same phone, and register them with different numbers.

In addition to the features available in WhatsApp Messenger, WhatsApp Business includes:

• BUSINESS PROFILE: Create a profile for your business to help your customers find valuable information — like your website, location, or contact information.

• BUSINESS MESSAGING TOOLS: Be more responsive to your customers by using Away messages to indicate when you're away or Greeting message to send your customers an introductory message when they first message you.

• LANDLINE/FIXED NUMBER SUPPORT: You can use WhatsApp Business with a landline (or fixed) phone number and your customers can message you on that number. During verification, select the “Call me” option to receive the code over a phone call.

• RUN BOTH WHATSAPP MESSENGER AND WHATSAPP BUSINESS: You can use both WhatsApp Business and WhatsApp Messenger on the same phone, but each app must have its own unique phone number.

• WHATSAPP WEB: You can more efficiently respond to your customers right from your computer's browser.

WhatsApp Business is built on top of WhatsApp Messenger and includes all the features that you rely on, such as the ability to send multimedia, free calls*, free international messaging*, group chat, offline messages, and much more.

*Data charges may apply. Contact your provider for details.

Note: once you restore chat backup from WhatsApp Messenger to WhatsApp Business, you will no longer be able to restore it back to WhatsApp Messenger. If you would like to go back, we recommend that you copy the WhatsApp Messenger backup on your phone to your computer before you start using WhatsApp Business.

Reviews From google play store

The worst app, my number was banned without warning. never entrust your business in this application. I experienced a huge loss, with loss of data and chat with customers. they block with no reason, absolutely not a good app for your business. risk all data in one application, then disappear in an instant. without being able to open or repair it. there is no good intention from the whatsapp team to fix it. believe me, WhatsApp Business is BAD👎 For you Business

Unfortunately I lost my data while I am changing my number. Then the app ask to create new profile. After that initialization took long time with no access. Even I tried to let the initialization to much time for 1 day while I was using wifi and clear more space but no way. Thank you for your cooperation but please remove that app from Google play store.

It is much better than WhatsApp Messanger. But while posting/sharing it loads the "Chats/Groups list" slowly. And I am not able to access posts without downloading. It suddenly hangouts and doesn't work. Make its theme good looking, impressive and attractive. Updating and debugging regularly is required and may be impressive for users.

Useless app... Previously I was fedup with the notifications issue... Inspite of reporting so many times no one responded. Now with the new update the app gets crashed and on starting it shows the whatsapp logo screen and closes. Now I'm uninstalling.... They need a good team of developers to make it work like whatsapp. My ratings minus 5 stars...

Please give an option to disable incoming video or voice calls. Call silent feature also doesn't work. Really it makes me upset. PLEASE GIVE AN OPTION TO STOP CALLS.

Whatsapp business keep crashing after latest update, now I unable to open the app at all...... Even after uninstall and reinstall again still not working. Android version: 5.1.1 Phone: Xiaomi note 3 Please help, thank you.

After Update, its not Opening. Continuously Crashing. Unable to interact with clients. Please fix ASAP. Thanks

Excellent work. Whatsaap app is a great tool for business to connect with each other, there have been many improvements over time. This needs further improvement, such as - if I do not talk to anyone, then I do not see it online, even while being online so that if the customer is sending me any msg, then I can easily see and do not get msg of useless people And the option of blue tick should also be optionally, should be custom. Bring something like this.

I am unable to open this app after updating. What's the issue? Till now it was working very fine. Beta is full means?

Anyone else having trouble logging into this app after latest update, what's going on??

I just update the app and it's just stop working, even the app is not opening, please resolve that issue asap.

The greatest of all app. But where is dark mode ? I would also love an option where you can just add contacts to your business group without having to save it on your phone first. Cos when you do a program where lots of people drop their contacts, you have to save it first before adding them to the group. Imagine where you have like 500 contacts. There should be an option that enables you to just add contacts to group directly without having to save it first. Thank you.

I am using this app for the past 2 years. very good app. and some more suggestions, in this business app can improve for sending the messages to any number of persons rather than 5 people. it will save the time,. and can show whether who is in online like messenger. in messenger one green dot shows. Can you develop some more features like future messages (for later date). It is very useful for business people. We can give some reminder on that particular date.

The app is not opening up now. I have uninstalled and reinstalled as per advise given by support team to no avail. Can this be sorted asap

Suddenly stopped working and then app is not opening. Installed again still facing same problem. plz help me out.

App crashing after latest update. OS : Android 5.1.1 stable. Urgent.

You can use both WhatsApp Business and WhatsApp Messenger on the same phone, but each app must have its own unique phone number. This is one of the miserable feature of Whatsapp Business. I want you to develop a sync of Whatsapp personal and business on same number. Equivalent amount of research and development is needed and more than R&D you guys need depth insight from a user's point of view. It's sheer inconvenience to use two numbers for personal and business purposes.

It keep telling me to update to the latest version whenever I want to open and I've already updated it, they said I should update it before 2 days but there is no new version here I've install the new version already please you have to solve this issue immediately because I don't know what will happen to my account in the next 2 days you gave me

It used to be very useful tool for my business with my office address and contact number, opening and closing time, my customer know when and where to track me easily but all of sudden that ended 3 days ago and the worse of all it that I can't even chat or write messages again. Pls fix it ASAP.

Suggestions: Catalogue should have more than 10 pictures if you want it to categorize. Not all products under a single category has same rate so allow price options not for a category but for every single picture in single catalogue. My one category has 10/20/30 color variants and all color has different prices. So i can't type price there because it shows price for category not for every price. It's a general term. Allow price for every piece also.

This is really good for businesses. How l wish WhatsApp Business accounts could be allowed to log on two devices or more ung same account

I've been using the app since 2018. Today when I updated the app again, then I moved it to a new location on the same phone. All of a sudden, the application is not showing on my phone again, but it's showing that it has been installed on my phone. I tried sending message from another Whatsapp, it's not delivering. I don't know what to do. Please, help

Unlike the what's App App, if i'm off the what's app business for sometime i do not get notifications. And i use it for business, so as my phone. I can't stay on the app the whole day that is why we turn on notifications but after 10mins off the app you don't get any until you reopen the app again. Please fix that.

I don't receive any notifications when I receive new messages. I have to open the app to retrieve new messages. This creates late response to clients. Unable to broadcast to multiple contacts. What's the point of business app but no such function? Also not able to use whatsapp business for laptop. It would be much easier for businesses if it was accessible on the laptop. Please upgrade for better experience.

Good app keep ot up. Easy to navigate and sends messages quickly

My apps keeps crashing whenever i tried to open it. It just won't open. Please help.

Thanks for adding catalogs. Suggestions: 1.Please make currency selectable (at least in major currencies) as not all sellers are domestic sellers , there are a lot of B2B businesses that deal with an international currency and foreign customers 2.Please give catalogues a privacy option - Let users choose to display catalog openly on profile or catalogue only visible to self and can be sent to selected customers 3.Please allow categories of products so whole category can be sent at once Thanks

I got good network connection but I can't send any updates to status on my business whatsapp. For many hours it shows "sending..." and during sending I also can't get or send any message to anyone. Plz fix this issue There is no update in Google store also

Require some changes in Catalogue First of all Thanku for such a amazing platform, It brings smoothness in doing business. I just felt that there should be an option of sharing the catalog with required visibility of the products. Or option to just share image from the catalogue. Sometimes we don't want to share the whole catalogue. Hope you will make the necessary changes. Thanks.

Need to update the following : 1. The green button is not working to search for the people to message. I cant see the message button in the green round. 2. Am not getting the messages whenever i switch on the net. It says "You may have some messages" in the notification. Please check for this

My whats app buasiness is not working still now, so many times i uninstalled and installed. Same problem

This app very good for business as in my country mainly use whatsapp for daily. Catalogs make great help for me and i hope it can add video in catalogs. But the notifications make frustrated, when the app in background, the notif wont come up, u need to open the app then the messages come up. Please fix this

This new update has bug in it as soon as i updated it whatsapp bussiness stopped working its not even opening kindly fix it ASAP

I have changed my whatsapp business account from my old phone to a new phone with same phone number but login keeps getting failed. Please sort my problem as soon as possible. It's always say check your internet connection and try again. Although I'm connected to a very good network

I like the app but thr telling me to update it' that my version is out of date but when i go to play store i dont found any update whats wrong with it i fixed the date properly but it still doesnt bring an update in Google play store why???????

I don't what happen to my Whatsapp Business after updated, it can't open and always force close.. Please fix it..

My WhatsApp Business doesn't load message in the background. I have to open this app to see all the nilotifications. All message just loaded when i open the Apps. On my previous phone, this problem didn't happen. But when I move to a new phone, this problem happens a lot. What is wrong with it?

WhatsApp Business messes around with my business. My number being banned on weekly basis causes so many issues. I'm missing clients messages without knowing I was banned until open the app. Been. Using regular WhatsApp for many many years, never had a problem.. WhatsApp Business ain't good at all.

With the new update, everytime I leave a chat group to see some other chat, and when I come back to the group it starts displaying from the recent chat. Previously while coming back to the group chat it showed where I left it the group chat before visiting other chat. The previous feature is gone which was very useful, I could start looking from the place where I had left the group chat. Why is this new update doesn't have that facility ??

Hello my watsapp has been stuck since Sunday and I have been trying to recover my account since then and have been trying all d suggestions gven by the support team for which I get a reply saying tht I have generated code too many times/entered code wrongly if there is any problem faced there is no one to help and none of d suggestions help they jus don't care abt the person's situation after trying so much and writing a review here they jus sent me a mail tht they jus checked and its working f9

Everything is OK but would be a lot better if the away message is sent as offline message. By that I mean....it should be sent even when you're not online as it is automatic and not until you come online. Thank you

This is very very important… If a finger print is used to activate the finger print lock, then it supposed to require or request the same finger print to deactivate it. But in this new What'sApp finger print security system, it's not so because anyone can access the system while open and just deactivate the finger print lock easily without any hindrance or requirement. So Update this part of What'sApp Business, Thanks.

Scroll issue. When we press back button and come out of group and then re entered the group it show the end conversation. Basically it should show the conversation from where we left. Previously it was working how come it stopped. Also, Please develop where user left the group should have some list maintain in it.

Used to be the best messaging apps until they started the purge. I literally using whatsapp with everything including my business & personal purposes. Suddenly they banned my number even tho I didn't violated any of the terms. It's just a flaw in their system since they using the same method like fb regarding the matter. Because of that, I have loss a lot of important data, chat history, & even contact for both my business & personal things.

I don't know i ma facing some issue. When i open whatsapp business, a message arises by showing on 24th jan 2020 this version became out dated kindly update, when i press download button and there is no option in playstore for updates. Why is this?

It is the second time my chats were cleaned automatically , its like i m started a new whatsapp account , i m using a bussiness account and i have many important chats , but no every chats are gone , so that whatsapp became useless for me , useless app

Perfect. But should add more fancy and funny cute emoji's. Cos i keep updating and keep seeing same old stuffs. Is not as if u can snapchat with it....so spark it more. The app is cool and perfect but its not fun. Snapchat funny face is fun... So do sth. No offence please. Thank u

I am facing too many lags while using this app.i can't upload status.I can't send any messages and media to my customers on time.I have good internet connection also but it take too much time for uploading. At the same time other apps are working well.

Ive been banned without proper reasoning. They dont even let me appeal or give me information on the complaints, anyone can make false reports. I asked to be given a chance to retrieve all my data and backup information, but no response. Just got cut off from all my clients. It cost time and money to get it all back. Not even a warning given. God damn it. Please use another app to do your business dealings.

Overall the experience is good but i wanted to suggest you something if you like it please add it on whatsapo business soon ! Custom Names option for customer to verify which of my customer is related to which item because it's too hard to save them in our contact list and then delete them after completing their order i hope you understand and like my idea Thanks.

Broadcast feature is of no use now, After sending 5-6 msgs in broadcast, The msgs sent doesn't reach the customers, Only a single tick comes, I've to broadcast nearly 50 msgs everyday ! I hope it's solved with the next update #PocoF1

Used too much space! And sometime, You cant send nor receive any messages at all! Deleted the app data, Yet the initializing part is so long! I waited for hours for it to finish the initializing step, So frustating!

After updating it got rubbish nd stupid, it's not Opening nd now how to access no option.

Best application ever, but for catalogue settinh its need to improve more by adding video catalogue also, so that we can post some ads video, to attract more customers. UPI payment option also needed to ads again. ( I will give 5 ⭐ later if they add video also on catalogue) Thanks to Whatsapp Business

It's been an amazing app, every update comes with an additional feature to help you get your product out there to your customers on your WhatsApp contact list

Some suggestions 1) Presently we can pin maximum 3 chats. I would suggest to increase to pin 5 chats. 2) A user can be able set messages to receive or not of specific groups in specific timings for example messages of business related groups only in business hours only, family n friends groups only after business hours, like this.

Pathetic service. Support team is rubbish. They will permanently ban you without warning if you send to large no of text to your clients. To hell with you support team which is not supportive at all.

Whatsapp Business has been awesome until this latest version which can't open on my phone. It continues to tell me 'unfortunately, whatsapp business has stopped'. What can be the problem?

Please in your next update, make provision for Us to be able to edit Status. It is very bad when you Post a status & You find out that there's a typographical error you can't correct. This apply to the WhatSapp application as well.

Pathetic experience with support team. They blocked my account' i requested many times but they didnt paid attention to my request. Atleast they should give a warning before blocking a account.

Whatsapp business hangs quite often. While the rest of my phone gets network access, WA business restricts network access for a few mins and sometimes, i hace to reinstall the app for it to work. Kindly, fix this bug. Other than this, its a great app hence, you get 5 star

Pleaee does this platform only allow communication between 'WhatsApp Business' users. if not how do I resolve this, please? "none of your contacts are using WhatsApp business. Use the button below to invite them" I have over 1000 contacts yet none is being displayed. I'm rather being asked to "Invite a Contact" 3stars for introducing it.

Could do better ... for instance bring something like telegram channel. You can have a channel in whatsapp using group settings but the problem is that channel participants can see who is in the channel (group)

Suddenly, our business account is banned without any prior notice or reasoning. They must understand we are using it for business purposes and they must give a notice of what is going on wrong so that we can rectify ourselves. Just banning or blocking the account is not a good job. It's frustrating. It's better not to depend on this app for business or customer support.

Why do I receive calls even if it's not appointment time fix it well for better ratings. Good but I will give 2 stars thanks

After update, I've trouble cant sign up! Please fix thanks

Hello I'm happy to use New Catalog feature but when I enter my product website link that time showing error "Invalid link or incorrect" but my link is correct and it's open my page on browser when I use that link. Please check on this issue and resolve it ASAP. Thank you

Highly dissatisfied with the email support team. When I complained of a banned account the were saying I have violated the Terms of Service. After vigorous pled from the email sent. They threaten me that my email won't be read. Not totally happy with that. Despite I spelled it clearly that I have clients and business associate that I had to discuss a very important issues with them. And also have seminar presentation on a WhatsApp business group. Yet my email haven't been attended to.

It would be very convenient for us to have a folder option added in next update. We can use folder to organise relevant chats, group chats in a systematic way. It would help us to look my WhatsApp clean. Currently I can archive chats but this is not sufficient for office users like us. I would also like to Join beta testing of WhatsApp Business if possible. 😐😐😐😐😐😐😐😐😐😐😐😐😐😐😐😐😐😐 Waiting for reply from Team WhatsApp Business 😴😴😴😴😴😴😴😴😴😴😴😴😴😴😴😴😴😴

Bad service This app is completely mess now.. Dnt know what's happening it's started re intializing and lost my data I enabled daily backup option also it's my business account all my transaction and bills are included please kindly rectify my issue I'm sending mails also no response

Good initiative by whatsapp. Bugs at uploading image while sending. App is not smooth as original. Some problem with camera app as well. Launching app feels laggy sometimes.

WB has good features but it could also have channel functionality cause group has limitations on number of messages but channel don't. As like me many user could have multiple group which is very difficult to manage all at once that's why we need channel functionality in WB. Please response.

It is good app but i am facing problem if some one can help the images and video i send to my friend or customers it does not get saved . it becomes faint images u canot read or resend to any one . it show message it is not saved on internal storage . kindly fix the problem

Not working notification tone while whatsapp using background or while another app using when whatsapp msgs are comes but doesn't know because not hearing notification tone only vibration. I changed the notification tone but not happening. Without this problem app is ✌✌✌✌

The catalogue feature is pretty good. But can you upgrade it by make it auto or live change the thumbnail that sent to customer before changes made. And also make it folder/categories view would be nice.

After the latest update, I can't open the application . Why it happened? Please help me. It's really important for me!!

To whom it may concern Business accounts on WhatsApp need to have “everyone can see my status” since not all our customers/clients’ numbers are saved on our cellphones/tablets. Hope this issue is taken into account soones Best Regards

always telling me to check my cell's network connection and try again. even though it has got a strong connection. I still can't open a business whatsapp even write a profile

Nice app but not support number notification for OPPO phone.

Excellent app. Only problem is it seems to kinda become slow at times. Initially thought its a problem with my phone. But later realized that only this app there's stuttering. Kindly improve on that. Otherwise an amazing app

In previous versions, when we forward msgs from one contact or group and then go back to same contact or group it used to previous forward msg position. Now it is going to the end. Since it is business app Previous option was very useful. Pls add feature in next version

The Overall app is good . But I want to give a suggestion that if the customer can place order from the catalogue itself to the owner then it would be very helpful for all those owners who put multiple items/services/products on their catalogue, and the customer also can order multiple items in one go from the catalogue only . Order can be placed while seeing the service only . If i was unable to explain my point well then do contact me via email .. IT'S A HUMBLE REQUEST TO THINK ON IDEA .

It is getting crashed after today's update .. kindly fix it...

Group Privacy setting. Why WA business does not have the feature of allowing certain contacts to be added into group just like the normal WhatsApp? It is a great feature to be added in and please do the same!! This is to serve for customers who wanted the auto-reply feature yet does not want anyone to simply add them into a group. Pls think about having this feature too in WA Business. Would appreciate if this update is rolled out the soonest.

WhatsApp Business has banned my number for no reason whatsoever! it's a great thing to have because of the features, links and websites... BUT it has banned my second number in my phone. It's a dual sim card phone, so it's really very convenient to have the WhatsApp Business. 😔

If i send messages on WhatsApp, it wont go fast, until after 30 or more minutes. I downloaded whatsapp business with another number, after sometime, i started having the same issues t here

It's every think good, but one think that can improve by your team in WhatsApp. That make a privacy in group that can only group admin see the no. other members can't see that. It's helpful to keep sensitive numbers private in group.

This app is fantastic for business, customize messages for when you are unavailable to respond to your clients. Keep track of your interactions.... Name it..... This is just what you need for your business.

IDK what's going on. Updating status took a very long time, sending messages also took time, meanwhile I am able to receive messages, and VN. I uninstall and reinstall. Let's see it works or not.

hello dev.!!!! please fix this issue!!!! am facing much much difficulty in contacting my clients due to your recent update!!! make it work fast please!

it's good since my regular WA won't work anymore in my phone, the basic is still same but with business features it's just become more great than before.. like the share file features, and many more

I need to know why I can't keep my display picture as long as I like ..it just disappear itself after 24 hrs.. I need you all to check on that..with the lastest version like previous versions regarding display picture.. Thank you

Brilliant app and so happy to finally be verified! 🤗🤗 although when messaging a client for the first time this morning it came up with the bussiness mobile number not my business name. Please help rectify this small issue. Thank you WAB

Inbetween there was an feature like when we open a chat session and come out. Whenever we open the chat session again it will stay in the same place where we scrolled. Why the feature is removed now? If we open a chat session again it comes from bottom

It's great to be able to communicate with my customers more easily but there is a issue when your on the app too long and the gallery on the left doesn't open it only shows a blank white page other than that I have no issues

Not different at all with the original version. Lost tons of data when switched over. That must have never happened! Shame....

Would be awesome if app allows users to have a sort of "whatsapp shop". So far so good though. UPDATE: So the upgrade has a catalogue which is exactly what i was suggesting.....so helpful!

Real cool to use But since I got the latest update, I noticed that I can't use my whatsapp with a norms mobile data, only works when I'm Wi-Fi, can you please fix that

My number was recently blocked. I appealed asking them to investigate. 12 years I've had my number and over 1800 clients on WhatsApp. There terms of agreement allows them to ban you without warning and no redress. So anyone can just submit a false report and they act without verifying.

Precious update has turn this app into a worst thing that ever happened to social app out there with a hope that the next update will recorrect this ugly experience but after this recent update it's still the same. Taken almost 5 minutes to upon a message is the worst social app I have ever used. Isn't it better to stop updating the app than turning it into the worst app among others?
