Those who remember the first major social network to reach the world can already celebrate: a new celebration on WhatsApp that just came to Orkut.
The application is working on a feature called “Community”, which promises to be present on the most beloved social network in Brazil.
The novelty was discovered by XDA-Developers while rummaging through Messenger’s 18.104.22.168 beta version, and confirmed by WABetaInfo.
New function on WhatsApp that only Orkut had before
There are still some nuances regarding functionality, but one thing is certain: it will differ from groups. Despite this, some similarities have already been found.
For example, communities should also have a system of invitations by link or QR code so that others can join in and participate.
“Anyone with WhatsApp can follow this link to join this community. Just share it with people you trust,” says an excerpt from a message found in the beta version by xda-developers.
Another common point is that the new role will also have administrators, who will have the power of restraint. In addition, they will be in charge of changing the names, descriptions and rules of the communities. Expectations are high!
But it is worth remembering that this feature is still in the early stages of development and for now, is in the testing phase and limited to only those who have WhatsApp beta download.
To become beta on Android, you need to search for the app on Google Play With the words “WhatsApp Beta”. On iOS, you must have the app first test flight Established.
