Bech32 is a new bitcoin address format specified by BIP 0173. This page tracks the adoption of Bech32.

Ideally wallets and services would first support sending to bech32 addresses. After almost everything can send to, then people may be willing to adopt bech32 widely for receiving.

The amount of bech32 addresses on the blockchain is tracked on this website: https://p2sh.info/dashboard/db/bech32-statistics?orgId=1

Blockchain Explorers

For trying these out you can use mainnet TXIDs 4ef47f6eb681d5d9fa2f7e16336cd629303c635e8da51e425b76088be9c8744c and 514a33f1d46179b89e1fea7bbb07b682ab14083a276979f91038369d1a8d689b. And addresses bc1qar0srrr7xfkvy5l643lydnw9re59gtzzwf5mdq and bc1qc7slrfxkknqcq2jevvvkdgvrt8080852dfjewde450xdlk4ugp7szw5tk9.

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.
