WhatsApp Channel

WhatsApp Channel is designed to allow users to follow individuals and organizations based on their interests. One can get information and relevant updates directly in WhatsApp by following the channels of people and organizations.

Note: The latest WhatsApp's Channels feature is now available for all Indian users but isn’t available to everyone yet. 

Updates by channel show up in a different tab of the application, away from your personal chats and calls. While certain features could feel natural to WhatsApp chats, channel updates are a one-way communication instead of a conversation. Followers won't be able to answer straightforwardly to channels or send messages to channel administrators. Rather, they can show their interest in a channel's content by deciding on polls or adding emoticon responses to channel updates.

Decide when and how you want the updates:

You can decide how you want to hear from the channels you follow:

Notifications are by default muted. To get informed about new updates, you can turn on notifications for each channel.

Channels are in the Updates tab, so you can decide to check out them when you want.

You're not automatically subscribed to channels. You can decide/search before you follow, and you can unfollow a channel whenever you want.
