In India, Meta has officially introduced its channels function, enabling users to follow the channels of organisations that interest them to receive immediate updates and information on WhatsApp. Users can submit photographs using the channels function, but channel owners can also provide links to information and media like photos and movies. However, at the moment, not everything is clear regarding how to follow channels and when the feature will roll out for all users.

How To Unfollow WhatsApp Channels:

  • Activate the three-dot menu.
  • choose "unfollow" and then "confirm."

The function is reportedly already spreading out to WhatsApp users, although it is not yet accessible to everyone. This indicates that it will be implemented gradually, and everyone should have it as soon as possible. Users can also sign up for the company's waitlist.

In order to distribute a range of information, including text, photographs, videos, stickers, and polls, administrators may use the Channels function, which acts as a unidirectional broadcasting tool. To help users find channels that suit their interests, the business is actively creating a searchable directory. Users will be able to browse channels pertaining to their interests, beloved sports teams, local government updates, and more via this directory. Users can also choose to join WhatsApp Channels by clicking on invitation links sent in conversations, emails, or online.
