Slack and WhatsApp are both leading platforms in their respective markets — but they both help to make things easier for businesses. Slack makes organization and collaboration simple, while WhatsApp Business streamlines communication and engagement.

While many businesses are looking to combine Slack and WhatsApp, there is no direct and official integration between the platforms. This is because the WhatsApp Business API restricts a certain number of apps to be natively integrated into the platform. 

Unfortunately, there isn’t a huge enough demand for the Slack integration, which is why WhatsApp hasn’t started working on this request. 

But this doesn’t mean that the integration between the two is impossible! If you’re looking for an answer on how you can integrate WhatsApp to Slack, continue reading on as we discuss different alternatives you can use. 👇
