WhatsApp For Windows Phone Update Adds Business-friendly Capabilities

Like its parent company, WhatsApp has also been looking at ways to make its platform suitable for businesses. WhatsApp for business is expected to make it easier for businesses to interact with their customers. In what comes as an interesting development, WhatsApp is reportedly planning to introduce the new feature through the shrinking Windows Phone platform. In the latest update version 2.17.234 for Windows Phone, WhatsApp has made a small change to its service which adds business-friendly capabilities to the messaging app.

According to wabetainfo, after the update, Windows Phone users will not be allowed to use a check mark character in their profile name to avoid confusion. The tick mark is indicative of verified profiles as seen on Twitter and Facebook and on WhatsApp it will be used to denote a business account that is verified.
The report further suggests that WhatsApp is set to release a separate business-only version of their app for iOS, Android and Windows Phone. This app, called Small and Medium Business, is also said to come with few restrictions as compared to the regular WhatsApp service. One of the restrictions will disable business organizations to change their account name which they choose upon signing up for the service. Furthermore, the name of the business will be character specific and users will only be allowed to use a specific length name.
