[APK] WhatsApp business is here”

One of the testers of WhatsApp has posted crucial details that suggest that WhatsApp Business will be a standalone applications and the company, as a part of survey, has asked a beta app user (Hüseyin Filiz via Android Police) for feedback on migration of chats, contacts from personal to business profile, Auto responses and analytics (to gauge consumer interactions).

First, WhatsApp Business is a separate, stand-alone app. Users of WhatsApp need to register for WhatsApp Business with another mobile number.

The logo of the app has been changed from the calling symbol to "B" inside the green conversation bubble. WhatsApp has already explained different use case scenarios through which users can get onboard WhatsApp business and manage their personal and professional accounts. There you'll find two new sections for Business settings and Statistics.

WhatsApp has indicated it could charge the larger enterprises for the Business solution. It's likely that the app, now in beta, will undergo several changes before it's made available to all the businesses around the world, but the information we've so far is very interesting.

It is now limited to Messages sent, received, delivered, read, etc. Speaking of the Business settings section, it further shows two more options, for editing your business profile and to set "away message". You also get a preview of how your business profile would look to others when they open it.

This is how the Business Profile and Chat would look like to the customers. The application has fascinating highlights, for example, automated messages, making a business profile, visit movement and examination. If they check your profile, they'll see all the details you've manually applied in your business profile: image, verification status, location, category, email address, web address, and so on. If that business account is verified, it will appear with a icon along with "Verified business" written below the business name. Maybe WhatsApp Business isn't something many of you will use, but if you live in a country where everything happens on WhatsApp, you'll definitely come across businesses who use it at some point and you probably have thoughts about how they should/shouldn't handle this transition to a Business account.

The Android App is available for download on the Google Play store but since it is available for only testers, you might not be able to get anything here. Having the personal and business chats separate in two apps should reduce the headache of all that management.

So what do you think?
