Is WhatsApp finally developing a feature many of us have been waiting for? Find out more in this article.
What is WhatsApp Multi Agent or Multi user?
WhatsApp multi user is the ability to use one WhatsApp Account from various devices. This feature doesn’t come with the app by default; you have to add a complementary service to access it.
Many entrepreneurs and even established businesses opt to use unofficial platforms and apps to be able to get multi agent functionality from WhatsApp for free.
Whether they do this because it’s cheaper or more accessible, this path can lead to some negative consequences for your business’s image. We explain why here. 👈🏼
Is WhatsApp launching a multi user feature?
The most significant messaging app at the global level is testing a beta version that will allow you to add a multi agent feature to your account. This translates to the ability to use the same WhatsApp account on up to four different devices.
What does this mean for users?
It’s actually currently possible to use WhatsApp on a phone and a computer, which is useful for most people (as long as the main phone has a good connection).
However, for companies who use WhatsApp to do business and have multiple customer service representatives, this has always been a blocker when it comes to making their systems more agile and growing their service department.
The new offering from WhatsApp in this area is that in addition to being able to connect, the main device where the app is installed (your cell phone) doesn’t need to have an Internet connection for the feature to work.
Great news, right? Real-time synchronization without delays. It’s what we’ve all been dreaming of.
How can I start using WhatsApp multi agent?
Sadly, for the time being no launch date for this new feature has been announced.
As we mentioned in the beginning, although some companies choose to find unofficial apps to fulfill this function, that’s not the best choice if you don’t want to put your contacts and WhatsApp line at risk.
That doesn’t mean that there’s no way to get this functionality now. There’s a very simple way to access it: hire Sirena.
Sirena, thanks to their fusion with Zenvia, is one WhatsApp’s official licensed partners.
What benefits can you get from using an official integration like Sirena’s?
Clearly, you get the multi user feature without being penalized. But what else?
