WhatsApp has already revealed their Business app for Android and is speeding the development for iOS as well. The app is still in early days of development and will take a lot of time before it could make it as the final release. Right now the app doesn’t have most of the Business features and the company is still working on basic features like Greeting Message and the first messaging tool. Unfortunately, there is no ETA on when the app will finally debut for iOS.
