Post approval action on Knowledge articles

I have a business requirement as follows:
When a knowledge article gets approved, the article title, subject and article link to be posted on chatter and will be available to specific group(s).
I already have an approval process which is updating an article as 'Published' status after final approval action. I want to leverage this same approval process with this additional action.
I know that we cannot define trigger on Knowledge article types.
Any feedback and help is appreciated to implement this functionality. Thanks.

I have implemented this functionality through Process builder.
Defined the criteria for 'Published' Knowledge article and in the immediate action chosen 'Post to Chatter'.

Can you please try to write a trigger like this and compile and let me know the outcome:
 
trigger test on Article_Type__kav (before insert) {

}
It will throw a Compile Error: SObject type does not allow triggers
