This new interface shows users clearly and concisely that the shared status has been generated through a channel post.

WhatsApp has gradually copied all the strengths that set Telegram apart from other instant messaging apps. This is a fact. But the truth is that, thanks to its immense user base, the strategy has worked well. Although I still believe that Telegram does it much better, I also confess that I find it more convenient to rely on a single app like WhatsApp, which is more established and where I have more contacts.
And I’ve used all this introductory text to refer to WhatsApp channels, which draw inspiration from Telegram channels. However, Meta is gradually adding improvements and innovations that make them somehow differentiating. I still miss the ability to automate them so that media outlets can send you news to consume from there, but overall, they are not bad. We have our own channel on both Telegram and WhatsApp if you want to follow us there.
For now, only for members of the WhatsApp beta channel
The point is that we know the app will introduce a quite powerful feature to give greater visibility to channels. It’s about being able to share posts from a channel in your personal status. It may seem trivial, but it’s not because thanks to this, channels will have additional dissemination from their own users with just a couple of taps in the application.
We know this information thanks to WaBetaInfo, a media outlet specialized in the messaging service that we often recommend from Universo Samsung. They tell us that version beta 126.96.36.199 is the one that contains this new interface for sharing channel content in statuses.
Specifically, WhatsApp will create a dedicated design for the channel update, aiming to provide clarity that the content posted in Status originates from a channel.
There is no information about when this feature will arrive in the stable channel, nor do we know for sure if it will ever materialize, as some features launched in beta channels never come to fruition.
