What is a WhatsApp Community?

A WhatsApp Community is where you can manage several different groups at once. Different groups can be clubbed together under one umbrella and managed together. This feature comes in handy when you moderate related groups and want to manage them in one place. For example, WhatsApp groups of different classes in a school can be brought together to form a ‘community’ of the school that they are a part of. Any announcements related to the school can be posted to the community where participants of all the groups can look them up.
