WhatsApp is working on a new update to bring a business section on Android

In the coming version, WhatsApp is going to add a new functionality for Android users that allows them to interact with businesses on WhatsApp easily. WhatsApp is known for its consistency in updating the features. WhatsApp upgrades generally include essential additions like the imminent flash call ability, vanishing messages, and a new Archive mode, and more. Updates can even enhance the user interface of the app by changing the upgraded features just like the elimination of blue text as it was causing problem in reading notifications.

This time, WhatsApp is working for business accounts to present a new layout that would help users to contact them easily. WhatsApp has designed business accounts differently from the normal profiles to make them distinguishable. According to a source, the company has now decided to update the business account even more by redoing the functionality and incorporating latest features that possibly help to make interaction simpler.

WABetaInfo in a recent report, claimed that the instant messaging app is trying out a new user interface but it is only accessible to the users using the most recent WhatsApp Beta edition. The top thing that makes the beginners business profile distinguishable from normal accounts is the profile icon. The profile photo of normal WhatsApp users is square in shape whereas, for businesses the profile picture is circular. Along with profile picture, all the details about the company will be mentioned beneath the photo.

Three shortcuts of message, call, and forward can be found underneath the updated profile section. The third option allow users to share the company’s details with their contacts. In addition to it, the company’s portfolio shortcut will also be displayed if they have created one. Likewise, a shortcut link to Facebook shops will be provided in the profile section only if the business permits to do so.

As far as the availability is concerned, WABetaInfo reports that the updated WhatsApp business interface is only available on the newest release of WhatsApp beta Android. This implies that whoever uses WhatsApp version are eligible to experience the new user interface. It was also reported that the updated business section would also be accessible on some of the previous beta versions.

To those who are using previous WhatsApp versions, they can update their WhatsApp via Play Store to access the latest business update. Apple users cannot avail this feature until the company decided to roll out. The main idea behind this updated UI is to make it convenient for Android users to contact the businesses on WhatsApp and getting the prompt response.
