Facebook Groups: List Of New Features
With the latest update, Meta has added the following features to the Facebook Groups:
- Channels: Facebook group members can now make channels. Channels are focused spaces for people to connect in smaller, more casual settings within their community. Different channel formats supported by Facebook Groups are as follows:
- Community chat channels– It is a place for people to message, collaborate and form deeper relationships around topics in a more real-time way across both Facebook Groups and Messenger.
- Community audio channels– It is a feature that allows admins and members to casually jump in and out of audio conversations in real time.
- Community feed channels: It is a way for community members to connect when it’s most convenient for them. Admins can organize their communities around topics within the group for members to talk about more specific interests.

- Sidebar: The latest update adds a new sidebar that helps you find your favourite Facebook groups easily. It will list your groups and the latest activity within them, such as new posts or chats you haven’t yet seen.
- Pin your favourite groups: You can now pin your favourite groups, so they show up first, discover new groups or even create your own. For example, if you want quick access to the latest recipes in your cooking group, you can now pin it to the top, find related groups, and be inspired to start your own.
- Group Menu: Within each Facebook group, you’ll also find a new menu that shows events, shops, and various channels to make it easier to discover topics important to you.
