WhatsApp Launches "Groups" Allowing Thousands Of Members, Called Communities

WhatsApp Launches

WhatsApp today announced that it has launched a new type of group called Communities. 

According to the company, Communities on WhatsApp will enable people to bring together separate groups under one umbrella. A community is therefore a ‘group of groups’.

Screenshots of the new feature from Meta show that a single Community could have as many as 24 groups inside it. Assuming each group would have 256 members, that would mean a community can contain at least 6,000 members.

Said the company:

Communities on WhatsApp will enable people to bring together separate groups under one umbrella with a structure that works for them. That way people can receive updates sent to the entire Community and easily organize smaller discussion groups on what matters to them. Communities will also contain powerful new tools for admins, including announcement messages that are sent to everyone and control over which groups can be included.

Meta said the Communities feature is targeted at organizations like schools, local clubs, and non-profit organisations who “now rely on WhatsApp to communicate securely and get things done.”

There was no mention of Buy & Sell groups which are a typical use in Zimbabwe and other markets.

The WhatsApp group size limit has for long been a complaint and this in some way could be a solution to that.

Other chat apps already have much larger group size limits. Telegram, the main competitor to WhatsApp for example, has a group size limit of 200,000 members.
