If you are an admin, you will now be able to merge WhatsApp groups that have similar interests, according to an announcement by the social media platform.
Whatsapp announced the new feature on its Twitter account on November 3, 2022 in the morning.
“Welcome to Communities. Now admins can bring related groups together in one place to keep conversations organized. Organized. Private. Connected,” said Whatsapp in the post.
One will also be able to switch different groups in the community and text them together, with the new feature being part of the platform’s latest move to enhance user experience.
WhatsApp last week also announced it was developing a feature that will display the profile picture of a user in a group chat to help one in a large Whatsapp group to identify others.
The Meta platform said the feature set to be unrolled soon will help users who belong to large WhatsApp groups but do not have contacts of all members saved in their list of contacts.
This comes as WhatsApp groups were allowed to have up to 512 members, an increase from the previous maximum of 256 individuals.
The popular social media platform, which boasts of more than 2 billion monthly active users globally, now allows sharing files of up to 2GB in size, up from previous 100MB maximum.
Whatsapp is available in more than 80 countries even as the platform experienced a global outage in late October, with the company yet to offer an extensive explanation to users.
