In this article, you can learn how to manage News Channels.
Primary News Channels
Primary News Channels are Channels used for important company updates.
These Channels are added and displayed automatically to all users, however, they are not automatically Participants of this Channel. Adding your whole organization to the Primary News Channel by using Google group sharing to make sure you can, for example, tag people in the Posts is recommended.
Primary News Channels have by default Notification Settings set to high, which means that all users added to these Channels (or joined through discovery) will receive in-app and email notifications from new Posts.
Secondary News Channels
Secondary News Channels are treated as any kind of Channel, such as "IT team", "A Guide to HR", "Product Updates," etc.
These Channels are shared with users the same way as any other Channel. If a user is a Participant in a Secondary News Channel, that Channel will be added to the News Feed on the user's right side of the My Stream page.
