Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday joined WhatsApp Channels, a feature offered by messaging application WhatsApp. The news was shared by news agency ANI which shared the screenshot of PM Modi's WhatsApp Channel. The feature allows users to start a one-way broadcasting channel and connect with a large number of subscribers at once.

Forwarding: whenever you forward an Update to chats or groups it will include a link back to the channel so people can find out more.
