One thing to note here is that unlike other chatbots of business accounts on the platform, you won’t be able to respond to this one. This will be a read-only chat from a verified and official WhatsApp account. Plus, much like all chats on the platforms, this will be end-to-end encrypted too.

Additionally, there will be an option to block notifications from this chatbot if WhatsApp-related updates aren’t needed. However, this functionality is still under development and we don’t if and when it will see the light of the day. If it does, we expect it to first reach beta users and then the stable users.

WhatsApp has been releasing new features at frequent intervals. So, there are chances this one can be around the corner too. Since official details are scarce, we will have to wait for them to appear to have a better idea. Hence, stay tuned for we will keep pushing out the latest WhatsApp updates.
