The latest Betas on whatsapp iOS are revealing many interesting clues about the future of the messaging platform: together with the update of the voice call interface, new details about the community function have appeared on the official app. There is even his first official image!
Thanks to the colleagues at WABetaInfo we can see the appearance of the Communities on WhatsApp. Before examining the two screenshots at the bottom of the news, however, let’s review what this feature consists of: the Communities are defined as a new place where group administrators have greater control over the groups on WhatsApp, mainly for In other words, within a community you can integrate a number of group chats to join the enthusiasts of the same topic but divided into several conversations.
This is clearly shown from the screenshots, where you see the interface of creating a Community with name, identifying image and description, and the subsequent addition of existing groups or new groups in the Community, for a maximum number of ten groups. In addition, it is noted that the system also shows when users join one of the Communities. Finally, to distinguish groups from communities, WhatsApp will adopt a square icon with rounded edges rather than a completely round photo.
In short, the feature is slowly taking shape and it will certainly be interesting to follow its development. When will he be here? The timing is currently unknown, so we just have to wait patiently for more information.
Another feature coming up concerns the ability to delete messages from other users in group chats for everyone when you are admin.
