About a year after it officially introduced the communities (Communities) in the popular messaging application - WhatsApp today (Tuesday) reveals a number of new changes that will allow simple and convenient conduct for administrators and users.
The new features will be launched in the coming weeks and will gradually reach all users, including Israel.
"More and more people are joining groups within the WhatsApp communities, therefore, it is important for us to give the community managers greater control over the privacy of the group(s) they manage," the company said in a statement.
So what's new?
WhatsApp adds a simple tool that gives administrators the ability to decide who can join the group and who can't.
When administrators choose to share the link to join the group, or make the group one that can be joined within the community, they will be able to control who joins it.

Another feature is identifying tangent/similar groups easily.
The number of groups and participants in groups in the communities on WhatsApp is increasing, and from now on managers will be able to easily know which groups they have in common with other participants.
"Whether you're trying to remember the name of the group with which you share certain information or alternatively to search for a group in which you and a specific person are members. Simply search for a specific contact and see below which groups you have in common," they explained on WhatsApp.
