WhatsApp rolls out a couple of community features to Android smartphones only


While the Meta group was working on a message restoration function, which we just learned about, the well-known instant messaging program is currently gaining pace by providing increasing options.

WhatsApp’s goal is to provide members with various discussion forums inside a single community. To put it another way, everyone will have access to a brand-new “Communities” page, where they may create up to 10 subgroups. Each of these subgroups can accommodate a total of 512 members.

After being announced a few weeks, this functionality has started to roll out, first on Android smartphones. WABetaInfo media tells us that versions (beta) and (stable) of WhatsApp now show the “Communities” page instead of the “Camera” tab, as reported to us by XDA Developers.

This new area might be pretty helpful, particularly for educational institutions that would then be able to let students join subgroups related to their classes, for example. You should know that even if you are forced to leave a subset, you will still be able to participate in Community activities. Note also that the function sadly does not enable, for the time at least, to conceal his phone number from the eyes of the different members.
