Meta has started rolling out WhatsApp Channels worldwide, a broadcast service that provides users with the opportunity to follow their favorite influencers, thought leaders, celebrities, and athletes, while receiving updates directly via WhatsApp. Surprisingly, this new feature is also being rolled out in the UAE.
WhatsApp Channel would not just allow admins to send content like photos, videos, text, stickers, and polls to their followers on the popular messaging app. But this new feature offers WhatsApp users in the UAE a novel opportunity to follow and receive updates from news outlets, cultural figures, sports teams, celebrities, and other organizations.
In a recent interview, Moon Baz, Creator Partnerships Lead, Africa, Middle East, and Turkey at Meta, highlighted that the new WhatsApp channels are actually a one-way broadcasting mechanism that enables administrators to efficiently communicate images, text, polls, and video content with their followers.
Users in the UAE can access the new feature by clicking on a tab labelled Updates on WhatsApp – where they will find the status as well as the channels that they tend to follow.
The rollout will be complete in the next few weeks or months, probably by the end of October. After the complete rollout of WhatsApp channels, anyone with a WhatsApp account will have the ability to create a channel on WhatsApp.
