WhatsApp has started rolling out the Channel Username feature in the latest WhatsApp Beta for Android 220.127.116.11 version. It means now a channel owner can create a channel using their username and this will be advantageous in many ways which we are going to discuss here. Also, it is expected that this feature will also include some more functionalities. Here are all the details.
Meta-owned WhatsApp is now thinking of adding the support of username for WhatsApp Channels and this username feature is already available on Telegram and YouTube also implemented this feature a few months ago. You can also call it a handle. This feature will allow users to easily search the Channels by just typing the username. A specific username will be beneficial for Channel owners in different ways. Channel owners can create a personalized channel link based on their username.
Moreover, WhatsApp is thinking of replacing the green verification badge with a blue checkmark for verified channels. The introduction of a channel username will eliminate the need for complex channel links. This new feature is currently under development as of now and it will rolled out to the public over the coming weeks.
