About communities

Communities on WhatsApp bring members together in topic-based groups. Anyone can create a WhatsApp community. You can create new topic-based groups or add existing WhatsApp groups.
Community admins can reach members with important updates by sending announcements. Community members can stay connected by exploring and chatting in groups that matter to them.
Members can receive updates and announcements sent to the entire community. They can also easily organize smaller discussion groups on what matters to them.
Your personal messages and calls in communities are always end-to-end encrypted. No one else, not even WhatsApp, can read or listen to them.
Here are some helpful things you can do in groups that are part of communities:
  • Create events.
  • Share polls.
  • React to messages.
  • Share files.
  • Controls for admins.
  • Reply to community announcements.
