According to reports, WhatsApp is working on a subscription model for its business app. Users will be able to access several previously inaccessible features inside the app with this new subscription level.
According to WABetaInfo, the new WhatsApp Premium membership plan would enable the WhatsApp Business app clients to connect up to 10 devices with the same WhatsApp number.
Users will also be able to rename each of these devices individually to make them easier to identify. This number of devices is currently restricted to four across all WhatsApp applications.
Furthermore, WhatsApp Premium users will be able to create a unique customized business connection. While companies may currently use short links to let consumers reach them by clicking on a link that contains their phone number, WhatsApp Premium will allow them to create a custom URL, such as wa.me/contact (name of the business). Consequently, users of WhatsApp will be able to recognize and connect with business accounts more simply.
The blog site noted, “It is not a username, but distinctive.” “The custom short link will always access a separate business dialogue.”
WhatsApp Premium is also mentioned as an optional feature on the site. This implies that WhatsApp Business account users will not be required to pay for the plan to benefit from its features. Customers may pick it instead if they wish to take advantage of the plan’s perks.
According to the blog site, this capability is being developed for WhatsApp Business’ Desktop, Android, and iOS applications and will be accessible to users in the future.
Meanwhile, Meta owns WhatsApp Premium and is expected to get additional features, making it more attractive to consumers. Pricing is still being worked out.
Separately, WhatsApp is working on a feature that would enable members to exit a group silently. When this capability is enabled, only group administrators will be alerted when a member quits the group, according to a second blog post.
