WhatsApp has launched the first stage of its new Communities roll out. The new features were rolled out to users from 5 May 2022.
Information and Implications
According to WhatsApp, communities will encompass a collection of separate groups. They will allow organizations like schools, local clubs, and non-profits work together more efficiently.
Group chats can now add up to 512 people, which has doubled from 256 people per WhatsApp group chat in the past.
People can receive updates sent to the entire community and easily organize smaller discussion groups on what matters to them.
The file-sharing limit will be increased to 2G, up from its previous 100MB limit.
One-tap voice calls will now allow up to 32 people to talk to each other.
