Sky News is on WhatsApp – here’s how to get our updates


You can now receive the latest news straight to your WhatsApp – plus all the latest updates on UK, foreign and entertainment stories and much more, all in one place.

It’s really easy.

All you have to do is click this link here from your phone or tablet and tap follow.

You can also follow these simple steps:

1. Open WhatsApp as usual
2. Tap the Updates option – it’s at the bottom if you’re on an iPhone, at the top on Android.
3. Type Sky News into the search bar – then hit the plus sign to follow us!

Sky News is one of the leading news publishers on WhatsApp, with hundreds of thousands of people receiving our updates.

What does that mean?

You will receive updates from the channels you follow and they will all appear in the “Updates” section. You can also see other Sky News channels, like Political Center with Sophy Ridge.

You won’t have messages appearing in the same feed where you receive your private WhatsApp messages, but they will be there in your “Updates” tab.

Find out first

To receive an alert on your phone’s home screen whenever we release an update, you can enable notifications.

All you have to do is tap the bell icon that appears on the channel page. If there is a line through the bell, that means your notifications for that channel are turned off. If there is no line, they are connected.

Can other people see all this?


No one will see who you follow or the posts you like.

You can follow privately (Sky News and other channels you choose to follow won’t see any of your information) and although you can’t reply to messages, you can react with emojis.

You can also follow other channels including your favorite celebrities, sports and other topics.
