WhatsApp Business, a stand-alone app that enables companies to remain in contact with their customers via the messaging app, has now launched in Germany, reported TelTarif. The Facebook-owned app is targeted at smaller businesses that are unable to afford their own comprehensive and cost-intensive support systems. The app can be downloaded for Android in the Google Play Store. There is currently no information on whether WhatsApp Business will be released for iOS or Windows 10 Mobile, according to TelTarif.
