This is a very useful feature for engaging users in a community, as they can't respond in channels, polls can be a good way to engage them in the content.

WhatsApp has expanded its set of features with the introduction of polls in channels in the beta version for Android 22.214.171.124, according to reports from WABetaInfo. Although the poll option already existed in the chat attachment page, this new implementation features a color change in the poll icon, now green instead of yellow.
This addition to channels allows content creators to conduct polls similar to 1-1 or group conversations. The feature ensures voter privacy, keeping votes anonymous, and poll creators won’t be able to know individual responses or who provided them.
Everything points to a year full of novelties for WhatsApp channels
Although this feature is currently in beta, its inclusion is a positive indication that it could soon arrive in the stable version of the chat app owned by Meta. Meanwhile, another WhatsApp beta update (v126.96.36.199) has been released via the Play Store, focusing mainly on fixing an error related to the display of thumbnail updates next to the contact’s name.
Even though we are only on the 13th day of 2024, WhatsApp has already released several beta updates for testers. In addition to the introduction of polls in channels, beta users on Android have gained access to advanced text formatting options this week. It has also been revealed that the company is working on allowing users to change the default green theme of WhatsApp, although this feature is currently available only on iOS.
