San Francisco, March 19 () Meta-owned WhatsApp has rolled out new updates to the community feature by tweaking the interface of “announcement groups” for users on iOS and Android to make it more user-friendly.
According to WABetaInfo, the company has renamed the announcement group to “Home” on the WhatsApp beta for Android, and “Updates” on the WhatsApp beta for iOS.
The Community feature on WhatsApp allows users to create and join groups of people who share similar interests or hobbies.
The report states that the decision to change the name may have been taken because announcement groups are typically read-only conversations that only community administrators have access to, and do not fit the traditional definition of a group. Could
WhatsApp moved the community icon from the bottom bar to the chat header to improve the user interface and maintain continuity with other chats.
Furthermore, the latest WhatsApp Communities update for iOS and Android provides community admins with a more bug-free experience while posting messages to their community.
The report states that the new WhatsApp Community Update is now available to some users who have installed the latest versions of WhatsApp beta for iOS and Android and will be available to more people in the coming days.
Meanwhile, WhatsApp is reportedly working on a redesigned chat attachment menu for the Android beta.
The tweaked chat attachment menu is clearer and provides a better user-friendly experience.
