The messaging platform owned by Meta Platforms announced on Thursday that it is rolling out Communities, a feature that allows users to organize different chat groups into greater structures, as well as other capabilities like larger group video calls and in-chat polls.
The Communities feature, which might be used by companies or schools, will gather different chat groups under larger awnings where managers can issue alerts to a community of thousands.
According to a business release, the app will now permit chat groups to have up to 1,024 individuals, significantly more than the 256 person limit it had previously.
Telegram and Discord, two WhatsApp competitors, allow thousands of users to participate in group chats.
Other new features include in-chat polls, a frequent feature on social media apps like Meta’s Facebook and Twitter, as well as 32-person video calling.
