WhatsApp working on Assign chats to linked devices feature
Four months back the leading WhatsApp news portal WABetaInfo released an article on an announcement made by WhatsApp for businesses. In the article, the reliable news source reported about a new optional subscription plan called WhatsApp Premium for WhatsApp business users.
The report mentioned that this new plan would let the business account holders use many extra features. You will be able to create your own customized business link and link 10 devices to your account. This will also let large businesses manage their chats from any specific device.
According to the report, this is why the company is working on the Assign chat to linked device feature. WABetaInfo has also released a screenshot of this under-development feature. In the screenshot, you can see that when any business user enables this feature, a tooltip will appear to notify the user about it.
Moreover, the feature will also show the list of all your linked devices when you assign any chat to a specific device. This will help you select the device to which you want to assign the specific chat. After you select your preferred device, the assigned chats will show up there.
This will help the user of that device know which conversations they need to manage. As per the report the company has not kept this new business feature as a part of the subscription plan. All business users can use it for free.
However, the report also mentions that as this feature is only for business accounts, standard WhatsApp account users won’t get it. The report further adds that the released screenshot is of WhatsApp beta for iOS.
