Whatsapp has recently introduced a new feature that allows users to improve their experience within groups, called the Whatsapp Community. In this guide, we will provide you with all the information you need to start using this service and make the most out of it. We will explain what a Whatsapp Community is, how to create one, how to manage it, and how to delete it.

What is a Whatsapp Community?
A Whatsapp Community is a tool that allows users to organize and bring together groups with common interests. In other words, it allows users to aggregate multiple groups into a single one and create an effective sharing space.

For example, if you are a member of the groups "Friends of soccer", "Friends of school" and "Friends of the office", you can create a community called "Friends". Updates can be sent to the entire community or only to certain groups. The function can also be integrated with work management tools such as Trello to improve internal communication or to keep students and families updated on school or university news. In addition to the work and school side, communities can be used to bring together hobby and sports groups.

Creating a Whatsapp Community
