Undeniably this is one of the most exciting updates we’ve got for you guys. We’ve added Whatsapp as a channel and you will be now able to test your bots on it from now on.
Being o̶n̶e̶ ̶o̶f̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ THE largest, most popular messaging app, Whatsapp took its time to open up to bots. While developers kept their patience trying all sorts of short time, short-lived strategies to get on the channel; WhatsApp finally (Albeit controlled) opened up its Whatsapp for business API’s to a select few messaging service providers….we were one of them!
For now, you can test your bots on our sandbox by heading over to our Whatsapp page
We also advise businesses to submit their company details to a request for early access, details for the same can be found on our Whatsapp page.
We will have a detailed blog on our integration with Whatsapp for you soon.
