The company Meta says that it is a safe way to monitor content that is important. Everything looks like a Twitter feed, only without statistics and reply moments. Thus, the creators got another channel with the help of which they can share the most important news about what they are doing. They can send photos, videos, polls, text messages and stickers to their followers, so the new function is also a kind of promotion tool. The announcement states that they are also planning ways to monetize content within Channels, because in the end everything is done for profit.

Safety comes first, so no data about the administrator who leads the communication is visible, and the shared contents are stored for up to 30 days, after which they are deleted. There is also an option that enables the prohibition of taking screenshots. Everything is therefore safe, and this is a logical step that many have been waiting for a long time, since Telegram already has something similar. WhatsApp is slowly becoming more than just a messaging app, and this is another step in that direction.
