Meta-owned instant messaging application WhatsApp is reportedly developing a new feature. It allows Android users to have broadcast channel conversations and 12 new features.
The feature is currently under development and will likely be available to beta testers in an upcoming app update.
WABetaInfo reported that the company is implementing various channel features to ensure users have the best possible experience when the channels are released.
These features include a full-width messaging interface in the conversation, verification status, number of followers, mute notification button, handles, real followers count, shortcuts, channel description, mute notification toggle, visibility status, privacy, and reporting.
The report also states that the features show the company’s commitment to offering users a wide range of features to explore. And use and make it easier for them to manage channels.
In addition to the broadcast channel conversation feature. WhatsApp is reportedly working on a new “admin review” feature on Android. This feature will give group admins tools to help them better moderate their groups.
When enabled, group members can report specific messages to the group admin. If an admin finds a message inappropriate or violating the group’s rules. They may choose to delete it for everyone in the group when a member reports it.
The new feature now allows users to link another phone as one of up to four additional devices. The same as when you link with WhatsApp on web browsers, tablets, and desktops.
