Bech32 is a new bitcoin address format specified by BIP 0173. The BIP status was moved from draft to proposed on 3rd January 2018[1]. This page tracks the adoption of Bech32.

Ideally wallets would first support sending to bech32 addresses. After almost every wallet can send then people may be willing to adopt bech32 widely for receiving.

Some blockchain explorers can only parse the bech32 address and display it, they don't build an index so users cannot search for bech32 addresses.
