WhatsApp Business now allows creation of product catalogs; Gmail, 1Password and more get news

And we are again with the most important recent news from App store! Let's have a look at everything?

WhatsApp Business

WhatsApp Business app icon

WhatsApp's business and enterprise platform, which came to iOS a few months ago, has gotten good news: now users can create product catalogs so your customers quickly get a showcase / menu of the things you sell.

The new feature is great for optimizing business time, as business account owners no longer need to send catalogs or menus to every customer they contact. Companies can send catalog items in conversations with customers as profiles, which is useful if the customer asks for suggestions or the like.

Product Catalogs on WhatsApp Business

Users can browse the catalog of each business simply by accessing their information page, and account owners can easily manage catalogs through their own application including photos, name, price, purchase link or code for each product.

Please note that WhatsApp probes for the registration of some types of products, such as alcoholic beverages, cash (including cryptocurrencies), adult items, weapons, subscription services or illegal products / services. The feature is already available initially at Brazil and in some other countries: Germany, the United States, India, Indonesia, Mexico and the United Kingdom; soon it will be expanded to the whole world.

Oh, and before I forget, we have a complete guide to using WhatsApp Business here on the site, for who you want.
