Mark Zuckerberg-led company, Meta, has announced launching an API facility to support businesses customise solutions for growth.
Cofounder of Meta, Mark Zuckerberg, disclosed this in a statement published late Thursday evening via his Facebook page.

The statement reads:
“Today we’re launching WhatsApp Cloud API for any business of any size around the world. This will allow businesses and developers to build on top of WhatsApp to customize their experiences and respond to customers quickly and easily.
