WhatsApp Spotted Developing New Interface With Ability to Share Profile Links for Business Users




WhatsApp is developing a new interface for business accounts. This will let users share a short link with customers directly from the app. The change first appears on a new WhatsApp for Android beta version, though it could be available to WhatsApp Business accounts on iOS as well. At present, WhatsApp allows both business users and regular consumers to share their profiles through a QR code. The app, though, does let its users manually create short links to their WhatsApp account profiles.

The feature is specially designed for business accounts. The feature will be going to enhance the WhatsApp catalog.

As per Wabetainfo, WhatsApp users will soon get the feature to set cover photos for their profiles. However, this feature will only be limited to the WhatsApp Business accounts it will not be possible for standard user accounts. The report says that the feature is enabled for beta testers, and there will be some changes in your business profile settings.

WhatsApp users now can share a short link with customers directly from the app.

WhatsApp for Android beta version has carry references for the new interface. The website also shares a couple of screenshots to suggest the changes that are not yet made public.

According to the reports, the existing QR code button that is available next to the user account name would be replaced with a new share icon. Tapping that icon would bring a new Share Profile section where users would get the option to copy the short link of their profile.

The short link can be use to allow people to chat with a WhatsApp account, without requiring them to save its phone number in their contacts list. It starts with WhatsApp’s short URL and includes the phone number of the user account.

Apart from this, WhatsApp is also planning to introduce a new camera button in your Business Settings. You can select a photo or take a new one to use as the cover photo. When other people (including standard WhatsApp user accounts) visit your business profile, they will be able to see your cover photo.

Currently, the Company is testing the feature on WhatsApp for iOS beta. WhatsApp is planning to introduce the same feature on WhatsApp Business for Android as well. The feature is currently under development so a release date is not known yet.
