Whatsapp officially announced the "WhatsApp Communities" on April 14th, 2022. The feature has started rolling out to some beta users as reported by WABetaInfo, as they can now create a community within the app. According to Mark Zuckerberg, communities on WhatsApp will enable people to bring together separate groups under one umbrella with a structure that works for them. The Communities tab is showing up for certain users who updated to WhatsApp beta for Android v2.22.19.3. 

WhatsApp Communities Features

WhatsApp admin just got more powerful with this update and it also adds a lot of exciting features to WhatsApp.

Communities help you to organize your related groups and send announcements in one click instead of sending them one after the other. It can help large schools or organizations that have various departments to reach several people at once. There can be different subgroups for different discussions or events.

WhatsApp Communities has been under development since November 2021 and might be available to stable users as soon as possible. A member of a community can join any subgroup and also exit at will. If you're a WhatsApp Beta user, have been able to update to the latest version? You can share your thoughts about the WhatsApp Communities if you're lucky to get the feature on your device. 

*Help Note: You can force close your WhatsApp and relaunch if you've updated your WhatsApp and the communities tab is not yet available, that's if you're a Beta user and lucky to get it.
