WhatsApp's Channel Feature

WhatsApp officially introduced the "Channels" feature to the world. The update was met with excitement and curiosity as users eagerly explored this new dimension of the app.

Enhanced directory

The channels are offered to users based on their countries. They can also view channels that are new, most active and popular based on the number of followers.


The existing feature has been extended to WhatsApp Channels as well. Users can react using emojis. How they will react will not be shown to other followers.


This feature will soon be available to admins. They will be able to make changes to their updates for up to 30 days, after which WhatsApp automatically deletes messages from its servers.
