WhatsApp will notify when someone reaches you from the business directory
WhatsApp is planning big changes for 2022 to keep its 2 billion users happy. In a recent development, the message application has started working on a feature that is a pop-up message when someone reaches you from the business directory.
WhatsApp Business Directory is a fast way to find businesses nearby right within the application and it is available in São Paulo at the moment. The company previously started developing a feature that allows filtering businesses nearby, giving you more control over this feature.

Meanwhile, according to WABetaInfo, WhatsApp is now planning to add a new message to business chats that will be available on WhatsApp Business when someone reaches out to you from the business directory.
Adding to this, a similar message is added when you reach someone using Business Directory – “You contacted this business from nearby businesses” and it appears in the same chat but on WhatsApp Messenger.
Currently, the feature is underdeveloped, which means it is not even available for WhatsApp beta users. However, the company will soon release this feature for beta testers and later for all users.
WhatsApp introduces Screen Sharing feature in Beta
Today, WhatsApp introduced the Screen Sharing feature in its Android Beta activity. Some lucky users have received this new function after updating the Android app to version 22.214.171.124 through Google Play Store.
WhatsApp has reportedly added a new button within the video call control panel. Once enabled, you will be prompted to share your screen with the person connected on the call.
This feature will record and share everything displayed on your screen with the recipient. However, the feature may not work perfectly now as the recipient’s WhatsApp may not be on the latest build of Beta.
In addition, users may notice some minor changes regarding the new bottom navigation bar elements’ arrangement after updating to WhatsApp Beta for Android 126.96.36.199.
Following a successful Beta run, WhatsApp will roll out the new screen-sharing feature and the new placement for tabs within the bottom navigation bar to more users over the coming weeks.
