About the new WhatsApp Business search functionality

Note: This feature is currently only available for use in Colombia, Mexico, Indonesia, and the UK.
The WhatsApp Businesses search feature is a home for finding and contacting businesses on WhatsApp. The feature helps WhatsApp users find and start conversations with businesses within the familiar WhatsApp experience.
To use this feature, tap
> Businesses > type the name of a business. Once you have found the business you’re interested in, you can simply send a message to that business in WA to begin your conversation.
What businesses are searchable?
All businesses that are searchable within this feature are WhatsApp verified accounts. Initially, you will only be able to see just businesses registered in your country. i.e. If your phone number starts with a +44 prefix, then you will only see results with a corresponding number prefix.
Business search results will match in full or in part the text the user has entered. When you search for businesses, search terms are processed in a de-identified way that cannot be linked back to your account.
Will I be charged for contacting a business?
No, it will not cost you anything to contact a business that you have found and connected with using this feature.
Your information will be used in accordance with the WhatsApp Privacy Policy.
