How will WhatsApp Communities work?

The first indication about this modality was made known by the portal XDA Developers, but it was later confirmed by the site WABetaInfo, which indicates that WhatsApp Communities will be a new tool where administrators will have greater control over various WhatsApp groups. These administrators will be able to add other users to a community of manual way or through a invitation link or QR code to share publicly or privately. In this way we can create communities with users who do not belong to the same groups as us.

With WhatsApp Communities, users will be able to create subgroups with different categories of the same topic. That is, the existence of groups within a main group. To understand it better, if you create a community that likes cinema, then within this community it will be possible to add a series of categories related, for example, with film actors and actresses or with film genres: horror films, action films , comedy movies, suspense movies, etc.

If you are familiar with Discord (or Telegram), then you will realize that it is as if the Discord servers are the communities and the channels work like the groups.
