WhatsApp channel updates: Mark Zuckerberg, CEO, Meta, has unveiled new features for WhatsApp Channels aimed at enhancing user engagement. The updates include the introduction of voice updates, polls, the option to share channel content to personal WhatsApp statuses, and support for multiple administrators in a channel.
Another notable addition to this is the Voice Updates feature, allowing users to listen to voice messages on channels.

Additionally, channels can now have up to 16 administrators, facilitating better information management and dissemination.
These updates are designed to streamline user-channel interactions, providing a more engaging experience. The ability to have multiple administrators enhances the efficiency of managing and distributing information through WhatsApp Channels, offering users a focused and efficient way to stay informed about updates from public figures and organizations.
