How To Create A Community On Viber

Do you want to have a large group chat on Viber? Or do you want to have more control over the conversation compared to a normal group? In any case, you can create a community on Viber. Follow our guide, and we’ll show you how to do so.


If you want to have a chat with different users on Viber, you can create a group or community on the app. Groups are generally for creating a chat with your friends, family, and workmates on the app, while communities allow you to have more members and features in the conversation.

The main difference between communities and group hats on Viber is that the former can host more members, admin controls, and features. This group type is perfect for creating a space for people with the same hobbies or interests.

Here’s our guide to creating a new community on Viber.

How to start a community on Viber

If you want to have an enhanced group chat on Viber that can host an unlimited number of members, you can create a community on the app. Communities offer more features and admin controls compared to group chats on Viber.

You can create a community from the Viber app on your phone. In our tutorial below, we’ll show you how to do it from an Android device.

  1. Open Viber on your phone and sign in to your account.
  2. Head to the Chats tab and tap the Compose icon.

  3. Select the “New Group or Community” option.

  4. Choose the contacts that you want to include in the community.

  5. Select “Community” as the group type and add the chat name. Tap the check icon on the top right to confirm your decision.

That’s how you create a community on Viber. You share links to groups and other chats to invite more people to join your community on the app.

By default, regular members of your community can send messages to the chat and share links. However, you can prevent them from doing so as a Superadmin of the chat.

As the creator of the community, you also have full authority over the group. You can ban and remove members, including admins and other Superadmins of the chat.

To wrap things up

Now that you know how to create a community on Viber, you can now create a space for people with the same hobbies or interests as you. Although you can’t delete or close a community on the app, there are a lot of features that allow you to prevent the members from using the chat.

That’s everything we have on us! For more tips and tutorials, visit our page frequently, and read our latest posts and updates.
