WhatsApp To Release New Business Directory Feature

WhatsApp is working on the ability to search for businesses nearby by filtering them.

WhatsApp is working on the business directory, which will allow users to filter nearby businesses using a new interface. The WhatsApp business directory is a new way to allow users to find new business accounts on WhatsApp with ease without having to leave the app.

As per the details shared by WABetaInfo, WhatsApp has released this feature for a trial in Sao Paulo, Brazil for now. The same feature is likely to be rolled out in other countries in the near future.

Once the new feature is rolled out, users will be able to see a new section called WhatsApp Businesses Nearby in the search bar within the app. Users can select the category and the results of business accounts will be filtered based on their choice.

This WhatsApp feature will be rolled out for both Android as well as iOS. The app has not stated anything regarding the same and also there is no official information about the release date either.

The app is also working on a new interface to enable users to join WhatsApp voice calls. The new interface will make it more compact and modern, organizing the available space, especially while placing group voice calls.
