WhatsApp for Android appears with “Community Home” where multiple groups can be listed under one roof
WhatsApp is seen developing a new section called “Community Home” where it would list all groups related to a certain community and help users manage their groups. The change has not yet been made public. However, this has been suggested via a new beta version of WhatsApp for Android. WhatsApp Community has emerged as one of the ongoing developments of the instant messaging app over the past few months. This feature can offer users a new way to organize their WhatsApp groups under one roof.
According to a report by WhatsApp beta tracker WABetaInfo, WhatsApp for Android beta 220.127.116.11 contains community house references that will be available to users through a future update. A screenshot detailing the new addition shows that WhatsApp would use Community Home as a section where multiple groups under one WhatsApp community will be available.
Users would have the ability to manage their groups through Community Home. There will also be a feature to edit a particular community from the section as shown in the screenshot.
Exact details on how WhatsApp would use the Community Home section have yet to be revealed. However, WABetaInfo reports that the feature is currently under development and will be available in a future WhatsApp beta update for Android and iOS.
WhatsApp was initially spotted working on the new community feature in November. It is believed to be a new place where group admins would have more control over their groups on WhatsApp.
The Community feature, however, may not work as a standalone space for group conversations. This would aim to make the groups coexist with the community on the messaging app.
WhatsApp has also added two new localizations through its latest beta. These include Amharic (an Afro-Asiatic language) and Somali (the official language of Somalia, Somaliland and Ethiopia). With these two new additions, the app owned by Facebook’s parent company, Meta, now supports more than 40 languages in total.
