Now, If the business has a bunch of products and offers a catalogue for the same, it will be able to show the catalogue now through their WhatsApp business account too.

Earlier, one had to open the business profile of the company in WhatsApp to open and browse through its respective catalogue but that's changing now. 

 

The call icon will now be replaced by the new catalogue shortcut and will be available through the button next to it. After you click on the call button, you will then have a choice to make a voice or a video call.

WhatsApp also announced in October that it wants to expand ways for people to check out available products and make purchases right from a chat, and with the introduction of the new shopping button, it seems to be a step in the same direction.
