Community chats are chats created specifically for Facebook groups. Note that they are not available to all groups (example: commerce groups) or people at this time.
You can control which of your Facebook groups appear on Messenger by individually showing or hiding them. When a group is hidden on Messenger, you won’t see its community chats on Messenger, but you can still see and participate in them in your group on Facebook.
Hiding a group will mute community chat notifications across both Messenger and Facebook. It does not mean you are leaving the group, and you can unhide the group any time.
