A new update is on the way to WhatsApp, and this is one of the important ones. The most widely used messaging app in the world is finally receiving some of the news that its users have been waiting for several months, including the new “Communities” .
It has been the CEO of Meta, Mark Zuckerberg , who has made official the news that is about to reach WhatsApp with its new version. Zuckerberg assures that the changes will be available to all users of the app starting today.
Communities finally land on WhatsApp
Without a doubt, Communities are one of the most anticipated changes by WhatsApp users in recent months. This is a slightly different version of the Telegram channels, where members interested in the same topic can join and enjoy tools that are not available in “normal” groups, such as the possibility of creating sub-groups, having multiple threads, making announcements, and more.
The Communities tab will appear in the bar at the top of the chats page. From there, it will be possible to create a new community or add groups to an existing one.
WhatsApp explains that the communities have end-to-end encryption, and are therefore more secure than alternatives provided by other services.
But this is not the only novelty that lands today on WhatsApp. The company has also taken the opportunity to make the arrival of surveys in chats official. Thus, today it is possible to create polls to collect votes on various topics.
On the other hand, video calls can now have up to 32 participants, and groups increase their limit to 1,024 participants.
WhatsApp has also taken the opportunity to remember other new features that have recently landed on WhatsApp, such as the possibility of sending files of up to 2 GB in size or the option of deleting messages from other people in a group when we have administrator permission.
