WhatsApp Channels: Here’s Everything You Need To Know

Channels was introduced by WhatsApp in June 2023.

The new feature is now available in over 150 countries, including India.

This feature is beneficial to both content authors and business owners.

With the release of its new Channels feature, WhatsApp has introduced an entirely new tab titled "Updates."

Channels on WhatsApp are distinct from chats, and followers are not visible to one another.

According to Meta, users will be able to view recommended WhatsApp channels depending on their location and popularity.

In the following weeks and months, WhatsApp channels will be available globally. Anyone with a WhatsApp account can set up a channel on the app.

The concept of channels first gained traction through Telegram Messenger, another instant messaging service.
