Calendar scheduling for WhatsApp

What is WhatsApp?

WhatsApp is a tool that connects more than 2 billion people across 180 different countries. This free service allows people to communicate securely with friends and family locally and globally. WhatsApp also has benefits that enable businesses to capitalize on their robust messaging and calling platform to stay in touch with employees and clients. One of the main advantages of using WhatsApp as a business is that its infrastructure and brand recognition means that the product is used, recognized, and trusted globally. With WhatsApp, you can provide customer service support and address brand-related inquiries from your clients wherever they are located. 

WhatsApp and Cal

Cal, as an online scheduling infrastructure product and platform, is focused on making meeting easier for people. One of the key ways we do this is by ensuring that our product is open source and accessible. Similar to WhatsApp, we offer free services that people can utilize even when they’re in the low-budget phase of business development. Our product makes it easy for people to connect by eliminating the back-and-forth that’s typically part of coordinating meetings. With Cal, all you have to do is connect your calendar and share a bookable link. This helps your friends, colleagues, and customers effortlessly book time with you.

Cal is a developer-friendly product that knows not everyone codes. Our app store allows people to expand and customize the way Cal works with them. Installing Cal’s app for WhatsApp allows you to set WhatsApp as a meeting location where you can connect with your clients via video chat or text messaging.

How to install WhatsApp

  • Log in to your Cal account

  • Visit the cal app store

  • Choose video from the featured categories

  • Select WhatsApp

  • Hit the install button

  • Go to the events section of your account

  • Choose or create a bookable event

  • Choose WhatsApp as your meeting location

  • Paste your WhatsApp link in the URL field

  • Hit the update button

  • Finally, select the save button 

As a secure messaging service WhatsApp helps people communicate. You can use it for everything from one-on-one video conferencing to sharing PDFs and photographs. 

Once you’ve installed the app you can also choose to take advantage of sync-chat. What this means is that rather than the meeting being conducted via voice or video, everything can happen via text. This is a great option if you're in a noisy environment or working from a location with limited internet access and speeds.

Using Cal with WhatsApp helps to ensure that you can take the communication style and platform you love and use it in combination with the world’s premier open-source scheduling product.
