Does Talkdesk support WhatsApp Business API?

Unfortunately, Talkdesk does not support WhatsApp Business API for the time being. This feature is not yet available as it is currently on Early Access release and the team at Talkdesk is still working on it.

However, if you’re still in need of WhatsApp integration, there’s a workaround. Talkdesk integrates with LiveChat to help you manage all customer requests, and you can connect your WhatsApp number to handle WhatsApp chats via LiveChat

How to set up WhatsApp on Talkdesk

Because Talkdesk does not have native integrations to WhatsApp, there is no official way to set it up. But, as mentioned, you can still do so via third-party apps like LiveChat.

Integrating to third-party apps might require some coding knowledge, especially when it comes to applying webhooks or gaining WhatsApp API access.

Setting up WhatsApp for the NovoChat workspace

  3. You’ll see a QR Code in the next window. If you do not see it, you can click [Reload QR Code] or [Reboot Server]. 
  4. Scan the QR code (either using a regular WhatsApp account or WhatsApp Business).
    • From your phone: open WhatsApp > click three vertical dots > select [Linked devices] > then, click [Link a device] button to scan the QR code.
  5. You’ll get a device status notification on your phone if the scan is successful.
  6. Next, you can do testing by sending a message from NovoChat’s inbox to your registered phone number in the channel.
  7. You should receive the message on your WhatsApp. Then, you can try to reply to the message. If it appears in NovoChat’s inbox, the integration is successful.
