cA few months ago, WhatsApp introduced a feature enabling the creation of events in community groups. The messaging application now offers this feature for all groups.

Organize your events without leaving your WhatsApp group 📅

Event planning just got easier within groups on WhatsApp. Accessible via the 📎 menu on Android or ➕ on iOS, this new option lets you organize physical or virtual events. Anyone can organize an event. As for other members, they can indicate their participation, allowing the group to know who will be present. Invitees will find details of the event in the group’s information, and those taking part will receive automatic notification as the date approaches.

How to create an event🧐

Creating an event couldn’t be easier:

  1. In your group chat that’s part of the community, tap 📎 on Android or ➕ on iOS > Event.
  2. Enter the event name, date and time.
  3. You can also add a description, location or WhatsApp call link to your event.
  4. Press the android send  on Android, or Send on iOS when you’re done.

The event description may not exceed 2,048 characters. You can add WhatsApp call links to the event up to 60 days before the scheduled date. You can add links to other platforms, such as Zoom, to the event description.

How to modify an event🤔

To edit an event :

  1. Open the group discussion, then tap on the group name.
  2. Press Events, then the event you wish to modify.
  3. Press Modify event.
  4. Make the desired changes.
    • Modify the name, date, time, location and description of your event: tap android send on Android or Send on iOS to save changes.
    • Cancel event: press Cancel event > Yes.
Only the person who created the event can modify or cancel it. Group members who reply « I’m taking part » will receive a notification that you have modified the event. Notification of your changes will also be sent in the group discussion.
