WhatsApp Communities is now accessible on Android, iOS, and the web version of WhatsApp – This is how you can use it

WhatsApp Communities is now available for Android, iOS, and Web users, after being announced a few weeks ago. The new function is intended to assist users in connecting with groups that are important to them on WhatsApp. The main purpose of launching Communities is to bring individuals and organisations with similar interests together under one roof.

WhatsApp Communities is similar to groups, except it allows you to add more individuals. For example, WhatsApp groups allow members to join a single chat, but WhatsApp Communities allow you to put groups with similar interests together under one roof. You may bring together relevant organisations in one spot, and connect with your schools, neighbourhood, camps, and more.

Now, irrespective of where you are using Whatsapp, the feature has rolled out across the ecosystem, and now, let’s take a look at how you can put this new feature to use.
