The option of connecting the same chat to ten devices simultaneously is interesting for users who have larger work teams, as it facilitates the access of shopkeepers to the same chat. In the regular version, WhatsApp currently allows connection to up to four different electronics, namely cell phones, tablets and PCs.
It is important to remember that the Premium version of WhatsApp Business is optional; therefore, if you don’t want to pay the subscription, the user can keep the free mode of the messenger. The functions that currently exist will continue to be available in the app for free. In this way, the paid system is aimed only at shopkeepers who insist on these additional features.
For now, it is not known what the other features of WhatsApp Business Premium will be or what is its release forecast. To access it in beta, you need to have the app updated and then go to the messenger settings to then choose a plan. It is worth remembering that, because it is being made available gradually and in some countries, if the option is not yet available to you, it is possible that it will be released in another update. Finally, it is worth mentioning that, as it is being tested, the modality can be officially launched with some changes in its operation.
