    make calls, all through WhatsApp
  • A customer service chatbot that allows you to interact with customers through
    WhatsApp
  • An app that allows you to share photos, videos, and other files with your
    friends and family through WhatsApp
  • A platform that allows you to connect with other WhatsApp users and build a
    community
