WhatsApp has announced a new feature that will allow businesses to allocate chats to specific associated devices, and now WhatsApp Premium is being rolled out as a separate feature for business accounts.
WABetaInfo claims that WhatsApp Premium is an add-on that is exclusively made available to select beta users in select countries.
By upgrading to WhatsApp Premium, companies gain access to a number of useful extras, such as an easier method for consumers to contact them and enhanced support for linking new devices.
According to the article, WhatsApp is launching its subscription plan this week for select businesses using the most recent beta versions of the app on iOS and Android which can be found in the Play Store & TestFlight, respectively.
Users with verified business accounts can upgrade to WhatsApp Premium by going into the app’s settings.
According to the data, a business account can sign up for WhatsApp Premium if and only if a new “WhatsApp Premium” tab appears in this section.
For a monthly cost (which varies by location), businesses can upgrade to WhatsApp Premium and gain access to two new premium features: a dedicated business link and enhanced support for multiple devices.
A business that requires more advanced services than WhatsApp’s standard package provides may choose to upgrade to WhatsApp Premium.
