With usage and revenue growth starting to moderate at WhatsApp, parent Facebook is flipping a revenue switch with its plan to charge businesses for sending messages to consumers.

That comes via the WhatsApp Business API, which allows for a variety of customized notifications. WhatsApp launched a business app for Android phones in January, with plans to eventually charge businesses.
