The popular WhatsApp groups will now have a new feature that promises to “revolution” the use of the messaging app.

Meta, the company that owns WhatsApp, as well as social networks Facebook and Instagram, announced this Thursday in a statement that it will allow “communities” to be created on its platform. This means that users will be able to link several groups under the same “umbrella”.

“With Communities, our goal is to elevate organizations’ communication with a level of privacy and security found nowhere else,” the company said in a press release.

“Currently available alternatives require that applications or software companies trust a copy of their messages, and we believe they deserve the higher level of security that end-to-end encryption provides,” they added.
