WhatsApp To Roll Out Events Feature For WhatsApp Communities

By Joseph-Albert Kuuire 1 Min Read

WhatsApp is adding a new way for people to organize events on WhatsApp. Meta is also introducing organized replies in Announcement Groups so members can respond to important updates from admins.


Anyone can create an event that others can respond to, so the whole group knows who is coming. Guests can also find the event on the group’s information page, and those going will get a notification when the event is getting close.

Events are coming to groups that belong to a Community first and will roll out to all groups over the coming months. 

WhatsApp is bringing replies to Announcement Groups, so admins can hear from their members while keeping these groups an easy place to catch up on what’s happening in your Community.

Replies are grouped together and minimized so users can see what others have said in context, and notifications are muted for everyone.
