Meta just announced that they are testing Community Chats for Facebook Groups.

To explain it easily, think of Facebook Community Chats as Meta’s take on Discord. It will be available on Facebook Group and is accessible via Facebook Messenger.

Meta explains that the new feature will allow users to “connect with their communities in real-time” and talk about the topics they are interested in “on both Facebook and Messenger via text, audio, and video.”

They added that “admins can now start a conversation about a topic and get in-the-moment responses instead of waiting for people to comment on a post.”

A user that will create a Community Chat can organize it into categories, so members can find the topics that interest them.



Chat creators, or admins, can initiate a chat so members can talk about specific topics, create a chat for an upcoming event, view-only broadcast chat for updates, and an admin-only chatroom to communicate with other admins and moderators.

Users can also create audio channels, but members have the option to enable video once they are in.

From what it looks like, Facebook Community Chats can only be accessed by members of a group. Facebook has also prepared moderation tools to ensure a best possible experience.
