Transforming a WhatsApp registered number into a WhatsApp Business business account is a simple task. Conversation history can be imported using the Google Drive backup feature. This way, the user can take advantage of the Business version of the application without missing a message. However, if you decide to go back to the traditional version of the messenger, the story cannot be maintained. Also, the number can be used in just one of the apps.
In the following tutorial, check out how to convert your company's WhatsApp into a business account to take advantage of WhatsApp Business. The procedure was performed on a Moto E5 Plus with Android 8.0 Oreo, but the tips also apply to other phones with the Google system.
