Users will be able to easily receive useful updates from people they choose to receive news from using the new “channels” feature.
What is a WhatsApp Channel?
A WhatsApp Channel is a private tool that keeps phone numbers and user information about those who join a channel private.
Messages received within a channel, on the other hand, are not end-to-end encrypted because the one-to-many concept does not apply to channels. It is important to note that channels have no effect on private messaging end-to-end encryption, which remains end-to-end encrypted.
Furthermore, people will not be auto-subscribed to channels as there are no algorithmic recommendations or social graphs pushing content to users who do not want to see it.
WhatsApp is also said to be developing a new text editor experience for some Android beta testers. With this new feature, users can easily switch between fonts by tapping one of the font options displayed above the keyboard. Text alignment can be set to left, centre, or right.
