WhatsApp Communities is Now Available to Beta Users.

Earlier this year, Mark Zuckerberg unveiled WhatsApp Communities, which allows users to create smaller groups inside larger groups. After months of anticipation, the functionality is now being rolled out to WhatsApp beta users, indicating that a stable rollout is on the way.

According to a fresh report by WABetaInfo, the communities option has appeared for certain users who have updated to WhatsApp beta v2.22.193 for Android. According to reports, the functionality may not surface immediately for all beta users on the current version, and some may have to force quit and restart the app first.

For those who do gain access, a new communities tab will appear on the main WhatsApp screen, replacing the camera tab on the left. Those who have access to the new Communities page will be able to build a Community with up to 10 groups and up to 512 people.

How will WhatsApp Communities function?

A Community will essentially be a larger umbrella group put over the smaller sub-groups for the group admin. Admins will be able to deliver messages to certain sub-groups or the entire Community through an announcement group that will be formed automatically when they create a Community.

Users who are welcomed into a Community, on the other hand, may choose which sub-group to join based on their interests. Communities also allow sub-group members to leave without leaving the Community.

WhatsApp is also aiming to conceal the number of members in sub-groups from other participants for privacy concerns, although this has not yet been deployed.

If you’re using the stable version of WhatsApp like the majority of users, you’ll have to wait a little longer for a taste of Communities, as the feature will only be stable when any issues are detected and resolved.
