What Is the Whatsapp’s New Feature? What is the purpose of launching it? Here are all the updates.
In the age of technology, most of the work is dependent on social media apps. Many people are earning a living with it. It is tough to imagine our lives without these apps. WhatsApp is one such app that is now a part of our daily lives. This messaging app has quickly appeared as the go-to messaging app for over 1.6 billion consumers all over the world. This app is easy to use and helps us easily connect with our family, friends, colleagues, and all those people who are listed in our contact list. Moreover, this application is also useful for official work, and there is no doubt in saying that almost every person is using it for their work.
That is why the creators of this app have constantly brought new features to this application for the better. Recently, a new feature has been added to this platform, which is quite different from other applications and is causing a stir among netizens. This Meta-owned application has recently released a new feature that is designed to keep channel creators notified about the status of their channels on Android, particularly when creators are close in particular countries. According to the reports, this new feature of WhatsApp was launched on Wednesday, September 13, 2023.
The purpose of this feature is to follow up on all the latest news about favorite sports teams, celebrities, etc. As per the creators of this application, it is one of the most reliable, private, and simple ways to get updates from different people on a single platform. Many people are still confused about the need for this feature and want to know the purpose of adding it. The reason for adding this feature is to make people easily get updated and connected with their favorite organizations, artists, thought leaders, and so on, directly on this messaging app. Famous names like Mark Zuckerberg, Neha Kakkar, Diljit Dosanjh, Katrina Kaif, Vijay Devarakonda, and Akshay Kumar themselves have introduced their own WhatsApp channels.
The report states that after launching this application, the firm is now refining the feature more. Moreover, the creators of the channel also get notified about the status of their channels on Android. The reason behind introducing this new feature is in response to local laws needing a platform to limit access to particular content within certain areas and regions. In addition to this, the new feature will permit WhatsApp to notify the creators of the channel if the visibility of their channel is restricted in any country because of any legal issues or requirements. The report further states that the work of this new feature is on WhatsApp to notify the channel creator when their channel has stopped working in a particular region.
Simply put, the users with phone numbers associated with that region will no longer be able to get access to the channel, nor will the creator get follow-up. To stay updated on product developments and announcements on WhatsApp, the firm has also launched an official WhatsApp channel, which makes sure users have access to the latest information directly. Partners of meta-based applications are quite happy and excited about the possibilities WhatsApp channels present, with plans to involve and connect the fans. Those who are connected through the new feature of WhatsApp are quite happy about it and share their thoughts on it.
The famous singer and actor, Diljit Dosanjh, shares his happiness and excitement about this new feature. He said, “WhatsApp Channels is something I am personally excited about because this new feature will easily allow me to share important updates about my work, life, and events with my fans.” Besides, India Today will also be the new user of this platform, where the media publication will share regular stories and articles debunking misinformation and disinformation trending on the Internet.
