WhatsApp for Android now supports ‘Verified Business’ accounts, in the beta phase
Even though WhatsApp for Business has not been officially launched, the company has shared some details regarding the same. The confirmation of this feature comes from WhatsApp’s FAQ page itself.
Some business accounts which have been verified by WhatsApp, will see a green badge next to a contact’s name. This implies that WhatsApp has confirmed that the phone number of this contact belongs to a business account. WhatsApp will also let you know when you start talking to a business via yellow messages inside a chat. However, there is no way to delete these messages from the chat.

Additionally, if you already have a business’s phone number saved in your address book, the name you will see is the name you have saved in your address book. If you don’t have a business’s phone number saved in your address book, the name you will see is the name the business has chosen for themselves. Also, if you would like to stop a business from contacting you, you can block them too.
