WhatsApp’s community feature for group chats

The messenger plans to expand the community functions more. In addition, new groups could soon be created via the community button.

WhatsApp is one of the most popular messengers for exchanging text and voice messages, pictures, videos and more with family and friends. Calling via WhatsApp is also becoming increasingly popular. In many parts of the world, the service is already being used to process business inquiries and payment transactions. Recently, Meta’s messaging service has already rolled out new features for voice messages. In the near future, the creation of group chats and the communication in them via the messenger will be made easier.

According to initial information from the meta messaging service, WhatsApp Communities could soon function similarly to Slack organizations or Discord servers. Different groups could then be collected under one topic and made accessible to all members.

Community button to easily create WhatsApp group chats

WhatsApp communities were registered for the first time at the beginning of the year – now more information will follow via WABetaInfo screenshot, which the social media expert Matt Navarra also shares on his Twitter account. WhatsApp beta for Android version 2.22.9.10 screenshot shows a new group icon to the left of the chats overview. The icon indicates a shortcut for creating communities. A description of communities is also presented:

Communities bring related groups together. Any community you create or get added to will appear here.

Based on information that hasn’t been officially announced yet, the Communities tab may supersede the camera icon previously in that location. When the new feature is rolled out, the camera will probably be positioned elsewhere in the app instead of disappearing from WhatsApp altogether.

So far, the community feature is still under development, so users will have to be patient. If you’re interested in pre-testing the new feature, you can still try to get a spot in the beta testing group on the Play Store. Alternatively, you can also get the latest version from APK Mirror.
