WhatsApp Communities is Going Live Soon

As noted by Meta’s head Mark Zuckerberg, WhatsApp Communities will help organizers of several groups manage them easily.

For example, a school principal being the head of several schools’ WhatsApp groups, can pass messages to all of them at once, and track their progress updates in a better and more dedicated way. A relief campaign having several teams under it – like shelter, food, rescue – can update all the teams at once.

This feature is currently under development, so it takes time to be available for beta testers even. When available, a separate tab is dedicated to viewing Communities formed by group admins of several relevant groups. Besides this, WhatsApp has also confirmed the below features;

  • Larger File Sharing Limit
    WhatsApp is already testing the larger file sharing limit of upto 2GB with some users in Argentina and may expand this to more users in more countries.
  • Leaving Groups Silently

  • Message Reactions

  • Bigger Group Calls
