WhatsApp Channels Are Finally Available in Pakistan
WhatsApp recently unveiled Channels as a private way of keeping track of things you care about, like Telegram. At first, it was only available in eight countries, but according to Meta’s CEO Mark Zuckerburg, it has now finally been released globally, including in Pakistan.
Channels were first released in Chile, Colombia, Egypt, Kenya, Malaysia, Morocco, Peru, Singapore, and Ukraine and now cover 150 nations worldwide.
Channels allow you to broadcast updates and information like Telegram. They shouldn’t be confused with WhatsApp Lists, which provide similar functionality; they are limited to sending individual messages directly to each member in your list, whereas channels offer you the chance to reach millions more people simultaneously.
Mark Zuckerberg has also set up his channel on WhatsApp, where he posts updates, announcements, and announcements regarding this popular messaging service.
Channels can now be easily found within the new “Updates” section on the home screen of your app. This tab shows status updates and media nearer the lower part of your screen that you subscribe to – any media you follow will also appear here.
Due to gradual rollouts of features, some features are currently unavailable – for instance, you might not be able to create your channel right now; however, others, such as Geo News, offer this capability on their apps.
Be sure to update WhatsApp to its most up-to-date version so you can access channels.
