Meta-owned messaging platform WhatsApp is reportedly working to bring communities to its WhatsApp Business application on Android.
According to WABetaInfo, the business tab introduced to the platform last year is not likely to be removed.
Instead, it might include a new entry point for the new feature within the application menu.
When users open ‘Communities’ right within the menu, they will see the list of all the communities they created and joined in the past, including all their subgroups and community announcement groups.
Businesses will also be able to create a new community within this section.
According to the report, WhatsApp Business is still in development. It is not yet ready to be made available to beta testers in terms of the ability to create, manage, and use communities.
The messaging platform introduced new features in November last year to improve users’ commerce experiences, connect them with their favorite brands, and help them find new ones on the platform.
