    WhatsApp adds a fantastic Communities feature to its app.

    Published on

    WhatsApp, the world’s most popular messaging app, has added a whole new feature called “Communities” next to the standard Chats tab on the iOS and Android apps.

    Groups that discuss similar topics may be brought together in one centralized point by clicking the Communities tab.

    As a member of a Community, you’ll have access to exclusive updates and the ability to form topic-specific subgroups for further conversation.

    Administrators of WhatsApp Communities now have access to features like global distribution of announcements and selective group invitations.

    Administrators of existing groups will be able to migrate their members to a new Community, or they will be able to create a new Community and send invite links to their members.

    All Community discussions will be encrypted from end to end for your safety and peace of mind.

    The communities that violate the law by committing crimes including planning acts of violence, participating in human trafficking, and disseminating materials containing child sex abuse will be disbanded, according to Meta.

    WhatsApp also announced updates to its Groups feature, such as the ability to have video conferences with up to 32 participants and the addition of polls to facilitate collective decision-making without disrupting individual members.
