WhatsApp is working on the launch of “Communities”

For the first time about the possible appearance of “Communities” in WhatsApp in mid-October told XDA Developers portal. Now this information confirmed portal WABetaInfo. It is noted that “Communities” will become a section where administrators can combine and manage other groups.

Communities will be similar in principle to the channels in Discord, where each channel can have subchannels called “rooms”.

You can join the “communities” by an invitation link or QR-code, and administrators can also manually invite a user from the list of friends.

Users will be able to distinguish “communities” from regular group chats by the icon – the “community” icon will have a square shape with rounded edges, while the icons of regular groups will remain round.

The Verge notesthat the emergence of “Communities” will allow Meta to narrow the gap between WhatsApp and other messengers such as Telegram and Signal, especially in the aftermath of the privacy policy scandal.

It is not yet known when the new feature will be officially added. In addition, the interface and functions of the “Communities” may change significantly before the start of beta testing.
