San Francisco: Meta-owned messaging platform WhatsApp is reportedly working on a feature for Android beta which will allow users to discover new channels by using filters.
For the new feature, the platform will add a new section which will allow users to search for particular channels, reports WABetaInfo.
Users will be able to search for a channel by entering the channel’s name in the new section.
Moreover, the new section will provide users with three filters — recently added, popularity and alphabetically.
The feature to discover new channels is currently under development and is expected to be released to beta testers in a future update of the application, the report said.
Meanwhile, last month, it was reported that the messaging platform was working on a broadcast channel conversation for Android, including 12 new features.
The 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.
