WhatsApp, the popular instant messaging software, is releasing a new feature that allows you to search for nearby businesses using a redesigned interface. According to WhatsApp tracker, the feature has been rolled out to select users in Sao Paulo and will be rolled out to more people in the future.
When you search for something on WhatsApp, you may see a new section called “Businesses Nearby” when you choose the category, the results of business accounts will be filtered based on your selection,” WABetaInfo explained.
Users will like being able to search for hotels, grocery stores, restaurants, and other locations without having to leave the app. Users of both iOS and Android will have access to the new feature.
This functionality is not now available, for those who already have access to the business directory, but it will be in a future release.
Not only that, but with the release of WhatsApp beta for iOS 126.96.36.199, WhatsApp offered a revamped page for business information. This works similarly to the iOS contact card when opening the roster and updating the status on Android.
WhatsApp Beta for iOS and Android is expected to receive the same revised contact information page in a future version.
