WhatsApp, the globally popular messaging application, always brings interesting and useful features for its users.
With number of conveniences, WhatsApp also offers business solutions to send bulk messages to a selection of phone numbers.
A user can also send all types of messages without touching the phone from the computer through WhatsApp Web, and you will not need to download any type of external software.
How to send bulk messages on WhatsApp web?
To send mass messages from your PC, you will only need to open WhatsApp Web in your favorite browser to use the broadcast lists, a tool that was integrated into the messaging service for a long time but that you probably do not use frequently.
The maximum number of people is 256 and it is perfect for sending commercial notifications, personal announcements or important information. Whereas, in some countries there are laws on the prior authorization to receive this type of messages.
You can send messages to a broadcast list from your computer, but you will have to create it from your phone first as WhatsApp Web does not have the function yet.
On iOS devices:
- Open WhatsApp
- From the Chats tab swipe u[
- At the top of the conversations you will see the Broadcast Lists option
- Click on New List and choose the people you want to integrate
On Android devices:
- Open WhatsApp and go to the Chats tab
- Enter the Menu, at the top
- Click on New broadcast
- Add to the contacts you want to send mass message
You can choose up to 256 phone numbers, but these must be added to your contact list and they in turn should have your WhatsApp saved so that messages can reach them.
