WhatsApp is introducing a new feature for its Channels that will automatically create albums. This feature is currently being tested on the latest Android beta version. It’s especially useful for people who run channels on WhatsApp, making it easier for them to organize and display photos and videos.
Here’s how it benefits users: According to a report by WABetaInfo, this feature will improve how media is organized in channels. Photos and videos shared in a channel will be grouped together in an album. This makes it easier for users to view all the shared media at once, rather than scrolling through individual messages. It creates a cleaner, more organized look for conversations in channels.
How it works: If a channel admin posts several images and videos one after the other, WhatsApp will automatically put them into a single album. Users can then click on this album to see all the media together. This feature has been available in regular chats and groups for a while, but it’s new for channels.
Currently, some people who are testing the beta version of WhatsApp can use this feature. It’s available for Android users who have the latest beta version from the Google Play Store. The plan is to make this feature available to more users in the future.
