WhatsApp you will move to the paid subscriptions group. Currently, yes, only in the variant Business, used by companies and businesses to be in contact with customers. All this is confirmed by WABetaInfo, which was able to find evidence of belonging to the beta version of the application for android. Of course, this version will come with exclusive features for those who want to open a wallet.

According to the aforementioned media, whatsapppremium, as the optional subscription is now known, will connect to ten devices to the same account.

Another novelty concerning the connections. Currently, WhatsApp Business allows you to create and share links 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, facilitating their memorization. If for some reason you want to change the link, the person has to wait for a 90 day warrant after making the last change.

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