WhatsApp is said to be working on a new feature called ‘Community’ that would make group chats easier to manage. This feature, first discovered by XDA Developer and is now discovered by WABetaInfo. It is essentially a new location where group managers may have additional control over their WhatsApp groups. To govern the flow of information, administrators can build ‘communities’ within groups.
It’s akin to the famous Discord chat app Community. After creating a server (or groups on WhatsApp), the administrator may build a community. Also, users can join by sending personal invites by text/email or clickable links. WhatsApp is trying a similar method, according to WABeta, although the final version’s appearance is unknown.
Whatsapp Community – Detailed Outlook
The WhatsApp Community looks to be a private chat room with end-to-end encryption, according to the magazine. The Community symbol or display is also highlighted in one screenshot. It is displayed inside a squared box within a circle. “Admins can send messages in this group chat and they will be able to group various groups associated to the community: for example, a degree course can be regarded a community, and all of its teaching courses are groups involved in this community,” according to the description.
According to reports, the WhatsApp Community will provide managers with tools to help them better manage all groups, although the Meta (previously Facebook)-owned messaging service may undergo modifications.
WhatsApp has not yet made the functionality available to Android and iOS beta testers. Community’s consistent deployment, on the other hand, can take months. In the meanwhile, Meta’s programs, including WhatsApp, Instagram, Facebook Messenger, and others, have begun to display the company’s new randing on both Android and iOS devices.
The announcement comes a week after Facebook revealed its new moniker, Meta, as well as the Metaverse it has been developing. All Meta (formerly Facebook) applications have now changed their splash screens to reflect the new branding.
