How to change the business name in WhatsApp Business

WhatsApp Business now allows you to change the business name in the app. When it was launched, the business messenger did not have that capability; the name entered during the creation of the account would be registered in the profile permanently.

The possibility to change this field is ideal for those who are changing the brand name, but do not want to lose the contacts saved in the commercial version of the app, for now available only for Android. Here's how to do the procedure and have whatever name you prefer in your WhatsApp Business profile.
