WhatsApp you will jump to the group of paid subscriptions. Currently, yes, only in the variant Business, used by companies and businesses to be in contact with customers.

According to the aforementioned medium, whatsapppremium, as the optional subscription is now known, will allow linking up to 10 devices to the same account.

This proposal, of course, will be possible thanks to the multi-device functionality introduced only in 2021 across the platform. This service will also allow each group to be given a name to distinguish them and facilitate their management.

Another new point regarding the links. Currently, WhatsApp Business allows you to create and share links in order to redirect users to a specific chat.

However, with WhatsApp Premium you can create unique and personalized links. Example: wa.me/infobae. In this way, companies can add their brand to the links, making them easier to remember. If for any reason you want to modify the link, the person must wait a 90 day term after making the final modification.

Right now, these are the only known features of WhatsApp Premium. More details will definitely be known in a few weeks as the subscription features are still under development.

Due to the above, it is difficult to predict when those interested will be able to subscribe to the Premium version of WhatsApp Business. One issue that remains to be seen is its price, since this can mark the success or failure of the proposal, in addition to the available functions, of course.

WhatsApp is on the path of monetization

While it is true that WhatsApp has one of the companies technological most economically powerful in the worldGoal), they have never stopped thinking about generating their own income. A few years ago, there were even rumors that the service might start post ads, but the plans were soon cancelled.

Today, WhatsApp seems difficult to bet on advertising. Reason? It’s getting harder and harder for platforms like iOS and Android collect personal data to display targeted advertising. However, with the company run by mark zuckerberg, nothing is ruled out. Currently, they plan to generate revenue through WhatsApp Business users.
