WhatsApp recently launched its WhatsApp Channel feature and here’s how to use and create a WhatsApp channel. WhatsApp Channels are a powerful tool that can be used to reach a large audience with important updates. They are easy to create and use, and they offer a secure and private way to communicate.
WhatsApp Channels are a one-way broadcast tool that allows admins to send text, images, videos, and polls to a large number of followers. This feature is ideal for organizations and individuals who want to share important updates with their audience.
Channels are different from groups in that followers cannot reply to messages or interact with the admin. This makes them a more efficient way to share information, as there is no need to moderate comments or answer questions.
