WhatsApp Just Rolled Out an Android App for Small Businesses

It’s available in Indonesia, Italy, Mexico, the U.K. and the U.S.


Businesses on Facebook have the Facebook Pages Manager application, and businesses on Messenger have Analytics for Apps data for their Messenger bots. And now, businesses on WhatsApp have some tools of their own.

The Facebook-owned messaging app announced the launch of WhatsApp Business, a free Android application for small business owners on the platform, which it originally discussed last September.

WhatsApp Business is available via Google Play in Indonesia, Italy, Mexico, the U.K. and the U.S., with a global rollout schedule for “the coming weeks,” and the app’s features include:

  • Business profiles, which provide information including descriptions, email addresses, store addresses and websites.
