Meta CEO Markzukarberg introduced channel features on whatsapp in India. Where users can create one-way broadcast channels and share updates with followers.
This channel feature is now available in India and over 150 other countries. These features should be very helpful for content creators.
Channels work as a unidirectional broadcasting tool, where administrators can share text, photos, videos, stickers, and polls while safeguarding the privacy of administrators and followers.
After updating WhatsApp to the latest version you will see a new tab called 'updates'. Here you will find the list of channels you follow.
Also, WhatsApp introduces some additional features for channels like search directory, reactions, editing, forwarding etc.
Channel creators also can delete a message for everyone within 30 days.
