WhatsApp: Mark Zuckerberg breaks his silence on “Communities”

A few weeks ago, Meta, the company behind Facebook Y WhatsApp, started testing a new tab called “Communities” in the communication app. For now, it is only available to those who have access to the Android and iOS mobile beta servers.

Basically, it is a tab that will be where the camera is currently located. Once you press it, it gives you the option to create an interest group or join one; the difference with the previous groups is that the entrance will be free.

However, you must abide by the moderators’ rules or you may be kicked out. They can even restrict who can talk in the chat. These groups already exist on Telegram, where various content creators, for example, share their latest videos and interactions.

Mark Zuckerberg has advanced some details about how it works in a recent post on Facebook.

Our messaging services are based on one-to-one text messaging, and that will continue to be at the core of what we do. But we’ve also been working on building the next generation of private messaging.”, warns the founder of Facebook.

How WhatsApp communities work

We created WhatsApp communities to make it much easier to organize all your group chats and find information. You will be able to gather different groups in a community; for example, in addition to individual groups for different classes, you can have a general community for parents in a school with a central place for announcements and tools for administrators. We’re also adding new features to groups on WhatsApp, including reactions, large file sharing, and larger group calls. And because this is WhatsApp, end-to-end encryption and security features will be built in from the start.”, adds the businessman.
