The differences between WhatsApp and WhatsApp Business

We have to be clear that they are two free applications that can work on your phone at the same time. These two applications allow us to use a phone number that we will have to verify. In the case of WhatsApp Business we can use a fixed number for verification while with WhatsApp we will have to use a mobile phone line.

Once the account is verified, we can use WhatsApp and WhatsApp business at the same time on our phone.

The good thing about separating the two lines is that it allows us to organize client and personal life issues through two separate channels.

What has to do with our work and we activate in our business, we manage it in WhatsApp Business and what has to do with family and friends, we take it to WhatsApp App.

Both options are free and both options can be on our mobile at the same time.

A cool and simple checklist of the things you can do With WhatsApp and WhatsApp Business.
