How to Unfollow a WhatsApp Channel (Step-by-step)

By the end of this article, you will learn how you can unfollow a WhatsApp channel.

WhatsApp has released a new feature called ‘channels’ that lets you follow your favorite people, organizations, brands, and celebrities directly in the messaging app. WhatsApp channels are a service where admins can send messages, pictures, videos, stickers, and polls to their followers.

However, this also means that as the number of groups and channels on the platform increases, you are going to be bombarded with notifications. If you’re in this situation, you might want to stop following some channels to keep the number of notifications to a minimum.
