The new application Kutumb allows users to create communities with over 200 people where they can discuss niche topics and meet people with similar interests.

Kutumb is a community app that lets users create groups with over 200 members.

  • The app offers customisation group hierarchy features including creating team lead and sub-lead.
  • Due to this, admins can circulate important information among sub-groups and monetise by charging a subscription fee.

Other features: Similar to Discord, Kutumb has added a feature where admins can add users to these communities only on invitation. The app has over 20,000 active community members including local government bodies, panchayat office members and others. The app overcomes the drawbacks of platforms like WhatsApp.
