Whatsapp For Buisness Android Now Available Worldwide

The much anticipated WhatsApp Business has officially launched. Released on Android, the app is aimed at helping small enterprises connect better with their customers.

WhatsApp Business adds key features like dedicated business profiles for details like email address, business description, store addresses, and website; smart messaging tools like greetings, quick replies, and away messages; and metrics for how many messages were sent, delivered, and read.

For those who use a business number and a personal one, both the WhatsApp Business and WhatsApp Messenger apps can be used in the same device and registered with your different numbers. WhatsApp Business is also compatible with WhatsApp Web, the app’s desktop web browser client.  

Business accounts will be clearly listed as such. WhatsApp says over time, businesses that have confirmed their account phone number matches their business one will receive a confirmation badge on their profile. That’s similar to WhatsApp adding green verification badges to select business accounts last year in the standard app. According to WhatsApp spokesperson, the current feature set will remain free in the long term, but WhatsApp plans on charging for additional capabilities in the future.

WhatsApp says other users can continue to use the standard app as usual and will still have full control over the messages they receive like blocking numbers and reporting spam.

WhatsApp Business is already up and available for download from the Google Play Store for Android users, though there’s no mention of an iOS release yet. It is currently available in Indonesia, Italy, Mexico, the UK, and the US, with a global rollout scheduled in the coming weeks.

Tips to Identify original and fake usb charger and cord

Nowadays many smartphone users suffer
battery issues and slow charge issues due to
bad charges you purchase or use on your
I have done a survey on one of the best
chargers in the market and have understood
their specs and charging speed and have
compiled a comprehensive list of chargers.

*√Non-Verified* Fake Blackberry Charger
Input: AC 100 – 240v (50/60Hz)
Output: DC 5V (0.75A)
Speed: Slow.

*√Non-Verified* Most Fake Chargers with Light
Input: AC 100 – 240v (50/60Hz)
Output: DC 5V (0.5A)
Speed: Extremely

*√Verified* New Age Energizer
Input: AC 100 – 240v (50/60Hz) 0.15A
Output: DC
5V (1A)
Speed: Very Fast.

*√Verified* Standard Gionee 1A Charger
Input: AC 90 – 300v (50/60Hz) 0.15A
Output: DC 5V (1A)
Speed: Very Fast.

*√Verified* UK Based Woo Charger
Input: AC 100 – 240v (50/60Hz) 0.2A

Speed: Extremely Fast.

*√Verified* Original Blackberry Charger
Without USB
Input: AC 100 – 240v
Output: DC 5V (2.0A)
Speed: Excellently Fast.

So purchase only chargers with the verified
specs every original charger has the specs
written clearly on it then get an original USB
cord, cause sometimes slow charge is
caused by bad USB cords.

Fix phone not charging only when switched off

When your phone doesn't charge when it's switched on or it charges very very slow, but charges at a normal rate when it's plugged while switched off could and should be very stressful to whomever is going through the problem on his/her device, because sometimes you may want to perform a task while the phone is on charge or you should be expecting a call or sms from business colleagues and a whole lot of other scenarios, but the main point is you want your mobile phone active while it's charging .
This could be caused by a whole lot of things on the phone, both software and hardware. Some few reasons why your smartphone refuse to charge while turned on but charges while turned off which includes; outdated software’s, bent pin ( pin sometimes get bent to a different position that makes charging a hassle, and changes how the phone is recognized if at all. Because of that, you can only charges the phone when it’s off .)

But in this post i would be giving you some really cool possible actions to fix this problem on your smartphone rather than meeting a technician in a hurry.

Solution1 :

1. Power off your phone, and wait for like fifteen seconds before you start getting setup to fix the issue

2. Examine the port carefully to see where the pin is bent

3. Straighten out the pin carefully , i repeat carefully to avoid causing any damage to it.

4. Once the pin is fixed properly, try to charge it when turn on and see the difference.

Solution 2:

1. Use different USB cable and charger to power up your device when turn on.
Sometimes, cable tend to be incompatible with some phones with time.

2. Remove/Refresh your battery: if your smartphone have a removable battery, I suggest you remove it completely and use another different battery compatible with your smart phone. Battery incompatibility sometimes causes charging distortion.

3. Make sure Your Android software is up to date otherwise search for an update for your device and get it updated. System crashes when they are out dated.

4. Factory reset your Phone: When all the above fails, then you will have to do the needful by factory resetting your phone.

If this methods suggested above seems futile, I'd suggest that you see a technician specialised on the repairs of phones to fix this or get a new phone if necessary.

Touchpal alternative , Correct wrong words with Grammarly keyboard for Android

Correct any wrong spelling and punctuation when typing with your android mobile device today with the advanced Grammarly Keyboard, this isn't your regular auto correct function it's on a whole another level.

Grammarly is an English language writing-enhancement platform developed by Grammarly, Inc., and launched in 2009. Grammarly's proofreading and plagiarism-detection resources check more than 250 grammar rules.

Now, the company now has a standalone Android app called Grammarly Keyboard that helps you correct your grammar, spelling, and punctuation in any app as you type.
Just like the online Grammarly tool, the keyboard app identifies grammatical errors while you type texts or words and help you with correct words suggestions and more so it's not limited to just spell checking.

While the keyboard app is an interesting innovation from Grammarly Inc, there are still a long way to go if it really want to meet up with the standard set by the likes of SWIFT Keyboard and Google Gboard. But hey, it's still a new app and definitely, updates will be released from time to time which will bring timely improvements.

Grammarly keyboard is unique, free and easy to setup. Similar to the method used in activating other keyboards, you have to download and install the keyboard app on your phone, then enable it and set it as your default typing app.
The user interface looks familiar and something like the design of Google Keyboard but the highly noticeable difference is the correction bubbles that pop up at the top as you type. Users can tap to accept the suggestion or tap the Grammarly button to see the errors expanded with explanations for the proposed change. But in all, the UI is not amazing compared to what other keyboards offers. Maybe, that's my observation, you can check yours.

Meanwhile, Grammarly offers premium services which comes with more advanced features and settings. So if you are a premium user, you can login and enter your details to activate those features while free users will enjoy just the basic features.

Make weak phone battery stronger with alcohol

How to make weak phone battery stronger with alcohol

A lot of complains that are made by mobile phone users are the issue of weak battery, this problem is faced by almost 50% of phones users and mostly those residing in places where power supply isn't always available, like some part of Nigeria.

some possible reason why mobile phone battery gets weak are.

1. Bad charging

2. Overheating

3. Bad charger

4. Using the phone while its on charge

5. Fake battery

6. Not charging it completely when its first bought

And so much more.

So today I'll be giving you a simple trick i use on some of my phone battery when the battery starts getting weak. And it works mostly or at least helps in extending the life span of the battery. Please note that your battery should be completely down as in off kpatakpata

Here is how its done

Get a alcoholic liquid, ethanol would be preferable, use a cotton wool to dip in it and rub it gently on the Anode (negative terminal) and the neutral terminal only, avoid any contact with the Cathode (positive terminal), after this is done allow it to dry off which would happen almost immediately then add again to the negative and neutral terminal of the battery.
if your battery is four terminal, rub on both of the non inscribed possibly neutral terminal, i.e in between the positive and negative.
And allow to dry, repeat the process about five more times after which you allow to fully dry under a little bit of Sunlight for 30 minuites,
Next up is charging.....

here is how the battery should be charged, i believe my warning that the battery should have run down to 0% before this process is being followed was adhered by you.
if you are all good then charging should be done with AC current preferable use Public power supply and not Generator or inverter or power bank. Socket to charge up until 70% the switch on the phone and allow it to charge till fully 100% then unplug and allow to rest for 10 minutes before use.

i hope this works for your phone...
