With the new feature, any member of a Community group can create an event, allowing others to RSVP and indicating their attendance. Event details can be accessed from the group’s information page, providing transparency and facilitating coordination among group members. Furthermore, attendees will receive notifications as the event date approaches, ensuring timely reminders.

In addition to the event organization feature, WhatsApp is enhancing Announcement Groups within Communities by introducing the ability for users to reply to messages.

 

Announcement Groups, where admins disseminate updates to all community members, will now support threaded replies, enabling users to engage in discussions while maintaining organizational clarity.

 

Importantly, users will not receive notifications for these replies, ensuring that Announcement Groups remain streamlined and focused on important announcements.
