The messaging app has introduced Communities. These are groups with large numbers that include WhatsApp group chats.
They allow people to unite different groups under one umbrella to make them more organized.

Mark Zuckerberg (CEO of Meta), which owns WhatsApp said that the feature provides a new way to organize groups.
Zuck said: “Communities makes groups better by enabling sub-groups, multiple threads, announcement channels, and more.”

Communities aims to make this process easier and has been in development for months.
