WhatsApp introduces a new user interface, imitating Instagram
In the beta update of WhatsApp for Android (version 220.127.116.11), the platform introduced a new user interface for sharing channel content in stories. The most important advantage of this update is that users can promote their channel content to their audience in stories.
WhatsApp imitates Instagram again
WhatsApp's development team constantly updates and creates new features to improve the user experience. However, instead of offering new features, it is moving towards simulating the features of other social media platforms such as Instagram. The story-sharing feature is very similar to the "Share Posts on Instagram Stories" feature that Instagram users have had access to for a long time.
WhatsApp's goal is to offer a new feature
The most important goal of launching the sharing of channel content in stories is to design a dedicated and new design to clarify the source of content so that the user can easily identify the source of the content and know whether the published story is just a personal quote or derived from a channel.
Limitations in access to WhatsApp's new feature
This feature is currently available to some beta testers but will likely be available to all WhatsApp users. If you want to see if the ability to share channel content in stories is enabled, share content from the channel and check the result!
