With that said, many Business customers care’s are communicating with emails, twitters, and Facebook pages. But now as WhatsApp is an already established messenger with a massive user-base could simply make it more convenient for the customers and take it to the next level.

This new WhatsApp will be first arriving on the Android platform, due to its larger share of the market compared to iOS. And also because not everyone has a deep pocket to hold on to Cupertino’s expensive devices. However, It will soon expand to the iOS ecosystem as well.
