WhatsApp Premium is the new subscription plan for businesses.The last news about WhatsApp Business was the ability to set up a cover photo to enhance the business profile, but WhatsApp is working on more features for businesses: WhatsApp Premium is the new subscription plan and it is under development on WhatsApp beta for Android, iOS, and Desktop!
Some time ago, we talked about a new subscription plan for business accounts: it will let businesses use additional features such as the ability to link up to 10 devices to the same WhatsApp account thanks to multi-device. Today, we can finally reveal that the subscription plan is called WhatsApp Premium, it is only for business accounts and it is optional, but we can announce something more about what else WhatsApp Premium will offer to businesses
Since the Meta-owned platform has not officially unveiled WhatsApp Premium, we don’t know all the details of the service just yet. That said, these are the features we know will be included in the service, courtesy of WABetaInfo:
Although you can now use WhatsApp on multiple devices, you are limited to your phone and four other devices. That, however, will change with WhatsApp Premium. Businesses with a subscription will be able to add up to 10 additional devices to their accounts. This should come in handy for small and medium-sized businesses that have a dedicated social media team to handle their WhatsApp accounts.
Another WhatsApp Premium subscription benefit we know about so far is vanity URL. WhatsApp Premium subscribers will get the option to generate a custom link for their businesses. For example, Beebom could potentially have an official WhatsApp account accessed through a unique URL like wa.me/trexempire.
As WABetaInfo points out, your business phone number is not hidden when you create a vanity URL. Users will still see the phone number when they contact you via WhatsApp. However, creating a short custom URL with the business name makes it more memorable and could potentially attract new users through word-of-mouth.
Unfortunately, we do not know further details about WhatsApp Premium, so when it will be released, what’s the price of the subscription, and if there will be more features included in the subscription plan in the future. What we know is that it is under development on WhatsApp Business beta for Android, iOS, and Desktop, it is optional and it won’t be released to standard WhatsApp accounts. When more details are available, there will be another article on this website.
Not yet. WhatsApp is working to introduce WhatsApp Premium as an optional subscription for businesses.
There’s no info on WhatsApp Premium’s availability at the time of writing this article. However, since the feature has started showing up behind the scenes, we could expect WhatsApp to roll it out over the coming months.
Regarding the availability, we don’t know how much the WhatsApp Premium subscription will cost. We will have to wait for the company to reveal the pricing details of the subscription service.
