Facebook-owned WhatsApp Testing Verified Profiles for Business Users

WhatsApp has started verifying business users on its social messaging platform with the latest update. Facebook-owned WhatsApp has been exploring options to enable merchants and small business communicate with users and the new update gives us the best signs yet of that plan.
WhatsApp beta for Android version 2.17.285 shows whether a contact is verified by the company. In a detailed FAQ posted on its website, WhatsApp says it will verify businesses with a green badge next to the contact. The green tick badge means that the business’ phone number and address has been verified by WhatsApp.
According to WABetaInfo, the business information section will include details like address of the business, the real name of the business, e-mail address and website. If the business also has an Instagram account, the link to that account will be reflected in the section.
