WhatsApp Business beta for Android updated from 0.0.120 to 2.18.3: what’s new?

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

WhatsApp submitted a new update through the Google Play Beta Program for WhatsApp Business, that’s available in some countries only.
The precedent version was the 0.0.120 (so the classic test build number) but today the new update has the version 2.18.3, suggesting that WhatsApp Business is very stable and it may be released soon in a lot of contries (or all them?).
But what features WhatsApp added in this useful tool update for your business?
Let’s find out together ..


WhatsApp has added a new very interesting feature in its Business app for Android: labels.
“Labels” is a useful feature that allows the user to filter chats and messages, in order to quickly find and classify them.
When a chat or message has a label, you will see an icon next to it.

Its meaning is very similar to the Starred messages feature, but in this case there are different labels that you can apply to chats and messages and every label allows you to quickly find a specific chat or message, seeing its payment status.

Available labels: Prospect, New order, pending payment, Paid, Order complete.

You can also create a customized label, according to your needs. The new label color is selected by WhatsApp itself.

You can see the list of chats that have a label selecting the Labels option:

Obviously you can also remove the label from a message or a chat.
Labels will be very important for businesses, so they can manage better their orders.
