All What'sapp users- WhatsApp has started rolling out its new community group feature to users of its beta Android app, WABetaInfo reports. This feature is a “major WhatsApp upgrade” according to Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
Morely WhatsApp’s Communities feature has been in development for almost a year now, but Meta officially hinted at its existence last April in a press release that detailed the changes coming to the messaging app. Again After several months of waiting for its arrival, the messenger team has finally decided to start rolling out the feature.
According to a report by WABetaInfo, WhatsApp is currently doing community testing with some Android users. It seems that versions 18.104.22.168 (beta) and 22.214.171.124 (stable) are first compatible. Those who received this update will get a new Community tab that will replace the old Camera tab.
Whatsapp communities are now available on Android
For those who don't know, the community feature will allow you to easily manage all your related groups and create subgroups for different topics. What'sapp Users can create up to 10 subgroups and alsp each of them can have up to 512 members. As soon as you create a community on WhatsApp, a group is automatically created under it.
WhatsApp users can, for example, create a community for a school with subgroups for each class or extracurricular activity. Administrators can then send announcements to entire groups to reach all users or only specific groups.
On the other hand a community member can decide to join a subgroup based on their interests. He can leave the subgroup whenever he wants without leaving the community himself. WhatsApp communities will let you block certain people, report abuse and more. Also, they will be end-to-end encrypted.
If the testing of this new feature is successful, WhatsApp may soon make this new function available to all users in the coming weeks. We will update.
