Catalogs arrived on the WhatsApp Business app last year. It lets businesses display their goods and services. WhatsApp said over 3 million users in India view a business catalog each month. WhatsApp is now allowing businesses to share catalogs and individual items as links on websites, Facebook, Instagram and other platforms. Businesses can simply copy the link and share wherever they want to increase their presence. 

Other than these two features, WhatsApp has also rolled out new animated sticker packs dedicated to businesses. The ‘Open for Business’ sticker packs will be available on WhatsApp Business and all WhatsApp users as well. The animated sticker packs can be found on the sticker section. WhatsApp had rolled out animated stickers just yesterday to all users.

The latest WhatsApp Business features are rolling out to all users globally including India. At present WhatsApp Business has over 50 million users on the app with more than 15 million monthly users in India itself.
