how does it work? 

Instagram Broadcast Channel 

A few days ago
Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Meta (former Facebook), the company that owns
the social sharing application Instagram, introduced a new and excellent
feature called Broadcast Channel in the app, which was initially given access
to the world’s biggest content creators. However, it was also announced that
the feature will gradually be extended to general content creators, meaning
that regular Instagram users will also be able to use it in the future.

However, the
most important question here is what is the broadcast channel feature and how
does it work? According to the information released by Meta in this regard,
content creators will benefit the most from this feature and they will be able
to easily share content with their followers. This feature can be used in
Instagram’s inbox, meaning content creators will create their new channel in
inbox chat, i.e. inbox chat, where they can share all kinds of content. 

the feature, content creators will be able to share all kinds of videos, voice
notes, photos, posts, links, and polls in the broadcast channel. And users will
also be able to participate in polls. The most important thing about this
channel will be that no other user i.e. followers will be able to comment or
share any content there. They will only be able to see content shared in the
channel by the account holder and react to it through emojis. Broadcast
channels can be created in the inbox of their existing account and each content
creator will initially be able to create only one broadcast channel. 

The broadcast
channel will be a chat box of sorts and content shared there will not be shared
in an Instagram release or post. However, in the future, the feature of sharing
such content as a post is also likely to be introduced. Under the feature, as
soon as a creator creates their broadcast channel, a notification will be sent
to all their followers, informing them about the broadcast channel. The above
notification will go to every follower by default and as soon as a follower
clicks on this notification it will reach the broadcast channel created by the

after reaching the broadcast channel, users will be asked whether they want to
be a part of the said broadcast channel or not. If users don’t want to be a
part of a channel, they won’t see the channel’s content, meaning the broadcast
channel won’t open in their inbox. Even if the followers are not subscribed to
the broadcast channel, they will receive the notification every time. Likewise,
the creator will have the option to turn off the notification or allow it to be
delivered to limited users.
