After Meta’s recent rollout of WhatsApp Channels in India, Prime Minister Modi has also joined this platform. In a message shared on the channel this afternoon, a photo of the Prime Minister engrossed in work at his office in the new Parliament building was accompanied by the caption: “I am thrilled to become a part of the WhatsApp community! This is another step forward in our journey of continued interactions. Let’s stay connected here! Here’s a picture from the new Parliament Building…”




WhatsApp Channels, first introduced in June, serve as a one-way broadcast tool that allows administrators to share text, images, videos, stickers, and polls with a wide audience.


This announcement was made through a blog post by Meta on September 13, 2023, where Meta stated, “Today, we have launched WhatsApp Channels in India, and will deliver a private way for people to receive updates that matters to them. We’re also welcoming some of your favorite celebrities, sports teams, artists, creators, and thought leaders that people can follow, right within WhatsApp.”


WhatsApp Channels can be accessed through a new tab called “Updates” on the platform.



However, at the moment, there are mixed responses regarding the new feature. Some users call it “disgusting” and “useless” while some say it has potential!
