We provide an official WhatsApp Business API integration that connects a project to WhatsApp. WhatsApp has a strict approval process for businesses, but we've made it super easy to start testing chatbot on WhatsApp in minutes.
- Choose the project to which you would like to connect WhatsApp using the top left drop-down menu:
- Go to the “Integrations” section and press the “+” sign:
Select the WhatsApp integration
Add a testing phone number in the following format:
When you want to test WhatsApp you can use the preview button in the topbar. This will open the Flow.ai test account. You are able to add up to 10 test phone numbers.
If you want to test different projects connected to WhatsApp, simply re-add your phonenumber to the different projects. WhatsApp will only reply to a single project.
Once you finished designing your bot and are ready to connect the project with a custom WhatsApp number you will need to provide additional information and complete the validation process.
