Create whatsapp chatbot
It's been a long wait, but it's finally here!  🎉
AUG 1, 2018
You can now build chatbots and conversational experiences on Whatsapp, the most popular messaging app in the world with 1.6 billion monthly active users and 60 billion messages sent every day.

At Hubtype we've been working closely with Whatsapp over the last months and we're proud to announce that Hubtype is one of the few platforms that supports the official Whatsapp integration from day 1. If you already have a Hubtype chatbot working on another messaging platform such as Facebook Messenger or Telegram, you won't need to do anything, your Whatsapp chatbot will just work!

Whatsapp for Enterprise is still in beta and it will continue like this for the next months. This means that Whatsapp is going to select what companies can access the beta program on a one-by-one basis, gradually accepting more and more companies.

So, what do you need to do to start talking to your customers on Whatsapp?

1. Apply for Whatsapp for Enterprise beta.

2. Apply to the Hubtype early access program for Whatsapp Integration here:

As soon as we get your request we'll follow up with you with further instructions.

Given the popularity of Whatsapp, we expect an overwhelming interest from all over the world. This means it might take a while for your application to get approved. In the meantime we encourage you to talk to us to understand how chatbots can help you automate your customer support and increase the engagement with your users.
