WhatsApp Community Home:
A community is a space in the application that will contain multiple groups. These groups can be the old, existing groups, or new groups created specifically for a community. Maybe the user will get invited to a community via a link or a QR code that will be shared publicly or privately by the administrator.
With Community Home, users will also be able to manage the group by certain unknown options that would help group admins to manage their WhatsApp groups better.
Besides the new feature, WhatsApp has also added localization support for Amharic – an Afro-Asiatic language and Somali – the official language of Somalia, Somaliland, and Ethiopia, with the 22.214.171.124 beta update for the Android app. It is now supporting more than 40 languages.

WhatsApp introduces Screen Sharing feature in Beta
Today, WhatsApp introduced the Screen Sharing feature in its Android Beta activity. Some lucky users have received this new function after updating the Android app to version 126.96.36.199 through Google Play Store.
WhatsApp has reportedly added a new button within the video call control panel. Once enabled, you will be prompted to share your screen with the person connected on the call.
This feature will record and share everything displayed on your screen with the recipient. However, the feature may not work perfectly now as the recipient’s WhatsApp may not be on the latest build of Beta.
In addition, users may notice some minor changes regarding the new bottom navigation bar elements’ arrangement after updating to WhatsApp Beta for Android 188.8.131.52.
Following a successful Beta run, WhatsApp will roll out the new screen-sharing feature and the new placement for tabs within the bottom navigation bar to more users over the coming weeks.
