WhatsApp has rolled out new search filters for its Business app users. The feature allows users to search for local businesses and restaurants straight from the app itself. In December 2021, the WhatsApp Business Nearby Search tool was initially mentioned. While it has only been a few days since it was initially spotted, WhatsApp has added Businesses Nearby Search to its stable version for WhatsApp Business app users. Read to know more:
Businesses Local Search is a new tool that allows users to search for nearby businesses such as grocery stores, textiles and clothing, and restaurants. There was little to no information about the feature’s global availability when WABetaInfo first noticed it. However, both iOS and Android users are now able to access the feature. It’s yet unclear whether the feature will be added to the regular WhatsApp app.
How to use WhatsApp Business’ New Search Filter?
Users must first open the WhatsApp app and then go to the search section to activate the WhatsApp Businesses Nearby feature. They will see additional search filters such as Restaurant, Grocery Store, Apparel & Clothing, and more as they type the search query. Traditional filters such as Photos, Videos, Links, GIFs, Audio, and Documents will be available alongside these new filters. The function will be one of the WhatsApp features that allows the programme to be used for more than just texting.
WhatsApp is alleged to be removing the WhatsApp Broadcast List. Also, WhatsApp New Group options from a conversation will allegedly be removed. According to another rumour, WhatsApp will preserve the archived message area at the top of the home screen but will remove the Broadcast List and New Group options from the top right and left of the screen, respectively.
