(CNN in Spanish) — WhatsApp has officially launched its Channels, which, according to Meta, are a simple, reliable and private way to receive important updates from people and organizations.
Although it’s not a feature available to everyone yet, it is already available in more than 150 countries.
Channels are located in a new tab called News in which the statuses and channels that the user chooses to follow will be found.
It’s all separate from chats with family, friends, and WhatsApp communities.
The company says its new one-way streaming tool is for admins to send texts, photos, videos, and polls to help users choose which channels they want to follow. Users can, in turn, reply and turn notifications on or off.
The app, available on Android and iOS for WhatsApp Messenger and WhatsApp Business, created a Search guide Where you can find organizations, sports teams, artists, intellectuals and updates from local authorities, among other areas of interest.
