Community chats are not available to all groups, countries or people at this time.
This feature is not available on the Messenger desktop app. To use community chats on a computer, visit messenger.com or facebook.com.
A community chat is a more public chat created specifically for your Facebook group, so you can have real-time conversations with other group members.
Community chats are controlled by the group admins and moderators. As an extension of your Facebook group, community chats are not subject to the same privacy guidelines as other chats on Messenger.
You can access community chats from your Facebook group, as well as from the left menu of the Messenger app and messenger.com.
