With WhatsApp emerging as one of the top channels for consumption and sharing of news, Bloomberg|Quint has launched this service to deepen its engagement with users and augment its distribution footprint. Subscribers to the service receive Bloomberg|Quint’s 'All You Need To Know' morning podcast, alerts and updates on the economy, corporate and markets news. Users can also interact through hashtag based search to consume content of their interest such as markets, opinion, business and politics.

Anil Uniyal, CEO of Bloomberg|Quint, says in a press release, “As a brand, we believe in being accessible to our users wherever they are. WhatsApp evidently is a platform of choice for top executives to consume and share content with peers and thus this service is integral to our digital-first philosophy. The initial response has been overwhelming and we are committed to scaling up this service in terms of users and features.”
