New York: WhatsApp has confirmed bringing the ‘groups’ characteristic Communities to the messaging platform.
Describing Communities, the company said it’s a new feature to help users organize their chats on WhatsApp.
“While other apps are building chats for hundreds of thousands of people, we’re choosing to focus on supporting the groups that are part of our daily lives. It’s early days for Communities on WhatsApp and building the new features to support them will be a major focus of ours for the year to come. We can’t wait to get Communities in people’s hands and are looking forward to people’s feedback,” they added.
“Communities are inherently private, which is why we will continue to protect messages with end-to-end encryption. This security technology has truly never been more necessary to protect people’s privacy and safety. Close-knit groups — schools, members of a religious congregation, even businesses — very much want and need to be able to have secure and private conversations without WhatsApp monitoring their every word,” the company stated.
WhatsApp users will get some other options as well. These are improvements to how groups work on WhatsApp — whether or not they are part of a Community.
“We think these will help people share in new ways and reduce overload in larger chats. These features are rolling out in the coming weeks so people can start trying them out even before Communities are ready,” they stated.
