Joinable vs WhatsApp Communities

What is Joinable?

Joinable is a shared tool for group communication and collaboration. It’s designed for any group that is working towards a common goal, including neighborhoods, social teams, school groups and volunteer groups.

What about WhatsApp Communities?

WhatsApp Communities is designed to bring separate community discussion groups together under one large umbrella. People can receive updates on bigger community topics, whilst remaining in their smaller groups.

How do their features compare?

Joinable has been designed to enable community organizers in all aspects of their group collaboration, including contact lists, messages (in app, email and text), calendar, polling, events and a shared folder.

WhatsApp Communities is a communication tool with photo and file sharing.

How private are they?

Joinable is a private group space, where members can control exactly what they share, how they receive their notifications, and allows individual organizers to determine each group’s settings. You can always see in our groups who else is a member.

WhatsApp Communities allows you to adjust your notifications per group. Members do not need to have a profile and may remain as just a phone number in your group.
