WhatsApp on its latest App update adding a new icon of Shopping to give users a quick view of product catalogs offered by businesses on the platform. This new icon will appear on the chat screen and this new plan of the company is to make users shopping experience much easier.
The company had originally confirmed the feature last month, saying that it would start rolling out globally before the end of the year. The button, however, will only be visible to end-users if a business has uploaded its product catalog on its WhatsApp Business account.
As you can see in the image below the all-new shopping icon/button will be visible at the top-right corner of the chat screen in place of the voice call button, which will now be integrated into a cumulative call button that will incorporate both voice-call and video-call options.
If you want to check just go to a business account on WhatsApp and click on the ‘Shop’ icon to see the products and services being offered by the business.
