WhatsApp begins testing the Communities feature for all its users

the tech company Goal has announced the deployment of Communities, a functionality that allows conversation groups that revolve around common themes and interests to gather in the same space.

In April of this year, Meta announced the Communities, a new section in the messaging application that would allow the outstanding messages of common social spaces to be located and to disseminate updates, to organize conversations by common themes. This function had already reached some countries, such as Peru, in past months. However, recently all users will have access to it.

This summer, the specialized portal WABetaInfo found this functionality in the latest beta update of WhatsApp for Android, where there was already the possibility of creating a community by adding up to 10 group chats.

Meta’s CEO, Mark Zuckerberg has now announced that all users of the messaging platform can access this toolwhich is now available on both iOS and Android devices.

With this, it has presented three new functions that WABetaInfo has been advancing in recent months. The first of these is the possibility of creating polls in the chats, which will allow you to make decisions without sending spam to all the members of the group.

On the other hand, WhatsApp has announced the expansion of video calls for 32 people, as well as groups, which can now have up to 1,024 participants. According to the company, these functions can be used in any group, but “They will be particularly useful in Communities”as mentioned in a statement.
