- WhatsApp is working on a new “community” feature.
- Judging by strings uncovered in an APK teardown, the feature is still a work in progress.
- It’s unclear if it’s a social network feature or baked-in community chat room service.
WhatsApp users have many upcoming features to be excited about, from multi-device support to a more private message reporting system. However, the company is seemingly working on a new “community” feature.
Spotted by XDA-Developers during an APK teardown of beta version 188.8.131.52, the feature is detailed in several new strings that suggest it could be a new social element within WhatsApp’s larger chat framework. However, there’s no concrete evidence of what the feature is or how it’ll function within WhatsApp. The string descriptions also throw up more questions than answers.
