The WhatsApp Community The vision was first shared by Mark Zuckerbergbut nothing came after that announcement about the development of the Community tab on the platform.
The current, WABetaInfo reported that WhatsApp is said to be planning to introduce the same feature to the WhatsApp Desktop beta as well in a future update of the app.
According to the report, the company has begun testing the Community tab with a select number of beta testers. The new tab is supposed to become part of WhatsApp’s header options, where we also find new Messages and Status options on the beta WhatsApp Desktop app.
Clicking on the Community tab opens the home page for the communities section, where all the communities can be found along with the option to search and join new communities.
It’s also important to note that the Community tab also works for the Android and iOS versions of the app.
Currently, the feature is in limited beta testing and it is certain when WhatsApp will expand the availability to more beta testers or include it in the final version of the app.
For those who don’t know, WhatsApp recently started testing a message-reaction-like feature for WhatsApp status. Status Reactions will allow the user to react to a status with a selected set of emojis.
