Meta announced the global rollout of the Broadcast Channels. The broadcast channels function was previously under testing and prior to its global rollout, the capability was only available to a small number of users and content creators. Those who have received this feature can message and invite their followers. The followers of a channel will be notified whenever the author posts new content. Channels from accounts in India like MC Stan, ICC and Mumbai Indians have already garnered a large following.

Recent news on the introduction of the Channels features for message broadcasting came from Meta for Instagram. Besides this, the company has also enabled creators to invite other creators (or fans) to participate in their broadcast channel.
