WhatsApp is making it easier for users to find and join channels with a new feature being tested.

Initially available to a select group of beta testers, WhatsApp has expanded the testing and plans to introduce a feature that simplifies the process of discovering new channels.

WhatsApp's upcoming beta update for Android, version, will be available on the Google Play Store.

The update includes a useful search feature for channels.

Users will have access to a new section where they can search for specific channels by name.

The section includes a search field where users can enter text to find channels.

Additionally, the section offers three filters to sort channels: recently added, popularity, and alphabetical order.

WhatsApp channels are used as a way for users to broadcast and share content, updates, and more on the platform.

These channels act as communities where users can post various things.

However, to view these posts, users need to find and join the relevant channels.

Currently, this process often requires clicking on links or seeking help from others to join a channel.

The upcoming search feature aims to simplify this process and eliminate these inconveniences.

The new search feature allows users to enter a channel's name and apply filters to find and join channels easily.

This enhances user experience on WhatsApp by simplifying the process.
The release date for this feature on the stable version of WhatsApp is unknown, but it is expected to be included in future updates as WhatsApp strives to improve functionality and user satisfaction.
