WhatsApp Officially Launches Communities to bring together separate groups under one umbrella

Whatsapp

WhatsApp has today officially launched Communities, enabling people to bring together separate groups under one umbrella with a structure that works for them. 

Communities like neighborhoods, parents at a school, and workplaces can now connect multiple groups together under one umbrella to organize group conversations on WhatsApp. To get started, tap on the new communities tab at the top of your chats on Android and at the bottom on iOS. From there you can start a new Community from scratch or add existing groups.

Once you’re in a community, you can easily switch between available groups to get the information you need, when you need it, and admins can send important updates to everyone in the Community.

Mark Zuckerberg said: “Today we’re launching Communities on WhatsApp. It makes groups better by enabling sub-groups, multiple threads, announcement channels, and more. We’re also rolling out polls and 32-person video calling too. All secured by end-to-end encryption so your messages stay private.”

WhatsApp is also making a number of improvements to how groups work — whether or not they are part of a Community.  

  • Introducing Polls, a fun and effective way to make decisions in a group without spamming everyone in the chat.  
  • Introducing 32-person video calls for those times when you need to come together as a group, whether that be a family chat or something for work.
