WhatsApp is working to add new features to help community admins have more control over groups. A few weeks ago, XDA developers spotted some references on Communities, a new WhatsApp feature that will be available in a future update. It would be more or less like group chat but with end-to-end encryption. Icons can also be different from other existing groups. This feature is under development and will be available for Android and iOS users.
The WABetaInfo tracker says, administrators can post messages in this group chat and they will be able to group together certain groups related to the community: for example, a course can be considered a community, and all of its teaching classes are included groups. in this community. Another example: WBI’s official Discord server can be considered a community, while its channels are community groups.
The community will offer some tools to administrators to better manage all the groups included in the community but, as this feature is under development, these advanced tools are still unknown at this time. Admins can invite others to join the community. Users can be added manually or they can join using a “community invite link”. When you join a community, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you can immediately send messages to all groups in the community, but other goals will be discovered in the future, WABetaInfo mentions.
The tracker points out that the “Community” is under development on WhatsApp beta for Android and WhatsApp beta for iOS, so its appearance, functionality, everything else may change before the official release of beta testers. Like any other feature in development, there’s not even a release date available: things like that can’t be predicted when they’re ready to release.
