Another change will be regarding access to the WhatsApp chat. This can be done through its URL, which can be customized by the company. Thus, making the URL something specific to that trade or organization.
The app remains free
Therefore, it is important to note that the services offered by the messaging app today should remain free for other users, who will continue to use the regular version of the app.
