After releasing the new WhatsApp beta for Android update, WhatsApp is now rolling out a new feature to more beta testers, to get notified when unknown business accounts contact you.
Actually, WhatsApp already presented a message when unknown people contacted you, but they are making it nicer now. In particular, this new feature shows a message at the bottom of the chat (before it was under the latest incoming message from the contact), informing you that the user is not saved in your contact list:
In this screenshot, you can see that the business is not in your contact list: in this case, you can add the business to your contact list or block them.
This feature is available for certain beta testers on WhatsApp beta for Android, and more activations will be following in the next updates.
