Messaging platform Whatsapp was working on the communities feature for a long time and now it is being rolled out for all users. You can easily create and be a part of communities.
About two weeks ago Whatsapp announced the new Communities feature and now it is being rolled out for Android, iOS and web users. With the help of this new feature, many groups can be connected and it will also be easy to manage them. Its purpose is to bring together like-minded people and groups.
Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg said about Communities, “Today we are excited to share our vision for the new WhatsApp feature, which is called Communities. Since the launch of WhatsApp in 2009, our focus has been that How can we improve conversations with friends and family, whether as individuals or as a whole group?”
This is how the new communities feature works
WhatsApp’s new communities feature is very similar to groups, but you can add multiple users and groups as well. In WhatsApp groups, only one conversation can be made part of, whereas with communities, many groups with similar likes and dislikes can be brought together. That is, it will be easy to chat in related groups and connect them with each other.
This is the way to create communities
For iPhone users, the Community tab is shown on the right side of chats, while WhatsApp Web shows this option on the top right side of the screen. Android users are also seeing the new feature in a separate tab. To create a community, you have to follow the steps mentioned below.
1. First open WhatsApp and tap on the Community tab.
2. Now after writing the name and description of the community, you have to put a profile photo. Its name cannot exceed 24 characters and must be mentioned in the description.
3. By tapping on the green arrow icon, you will be able to make an existing group a part of the community or create a new group.
4. After adding groups to the community, finally tap on the green check mark icon.
Some limits set for communities
Keep in mind, apart from the announcement group, users can make maximum 50 groups a part of any one community. At the same time, up to 5,000 members can be included in the announcement group and any community member can join the groups related to it. PLC/GT
