How to use broadcast lists on the WhatsApp Business app

Broadcast lists are saved lists of contacts that allow you to message many of your customers at once. When you send a message to a broadcast list, the message will be sent to all customers on the list, as long as they have your number saved in their phones’ address book. If any of your customers reply to your message, their reply will appear as a normal message in your CHATS screen. It will not be sent to other customers on your broadcast list.

Note: Only contacts who’ve added your number to their phone's address book will receive your broadcast message.
