How to CREATE A CHANNEL in WhatsApp? New feature

WhatsApp has rolled out a new feature called "updates," which essentially functions like a channel. Although it is not available globally just yet, the feature is expected to be widely accessible in the near future. To create a channel in WhatsApp, follow these steps:

  1. Open WhatsApp on your phone.
  2. Go to the "updates" tab, located at the bottom.
  3. Tap the plus icon.
  4. Select "create channel."
  5. Tap "get started" and proceed through the prompts.
  6. Add a channel name to complete the creation process.
  7. Customize your channel by adding a description and an icon.
  8. Tap "create channel."
  9. You can access your channels by clicking the channels icon.
  10. Copy the link to your channel and share it with others.
  11. Start sharing updates within your channel.

Creating channels on WhatsApp is a popular concept, particularly in Eastern Europe. It offers a similar experience to viewing a user's updates on platforms like Twitter or Facebook, where you can read and interact with posts. However, unlike these platforms, WhatsApp channels are designed for one-way communication. Users can subscribe to channels and view updates from a specific publisher, but they cannot delete these updates. Instead, they can react and comment on the content.

Think of a WhatsApp channel as a personalized feed where you can share updates with your subscribers, similar to a subscription-based service. It serves as a hub where you can engage with your fans and followers. However, it's important to note that WhatsApp channels are not like global feeds where you see updates from multiple sources, as in the case of Twitter or other similar platforms. Instead, you can access updates exclusively from one publisher or organization in a dedicated channel.

If you're eager to explore this new feature, give it a try and see how it enhances your communication experience on WhatsApp. Thank you for reading!
