According to an earlier report, a community has a name and a description, as seen on a group. After entering the name and details, users will get the option to create a new group or link up to 10 groups. Apart from this, the update also contains a reference to a mysterious group in the community. The purpose of the group automatically created by the platform is not known, but reports suggest that it will allow all linked groups to share a message.

According to reports, when users join a community, they will not be able to see the groups that have not been linked. Apart from this, when users leave a community, they will not be able to see the groups linked to the community. Since this service is in development, you cannot create a community right now. The platform may roll out this in the coming updates.
