According to the company, the Communities feature is a major update to how people will be able to connect on WhatsApp in the groups. Communities like neighborhoods, parents at a school, and workplaces can now connect multiple groups together under one umbrella to organise group conversations on WhatsApp, states the messaging platform.

WhatsApp explains that ‘Communities on WhatsApp’ are close-knit groups that need more tools to organise and manage their conversations and these kinds of groups typically have a connection where people know one another, organised around a common place or interest.

According to WhatsApp, “At the center of every Community on WhatsApp is a description and menu of groups that people can choose to join. This provides a structure and organisation to conversations among larger and more complex groups that allow people to focus on what matters to them.
