Groups let you organize topics and easily share them with members by using a join code, join link, or QR code. Now, you can also create your groups with an audience in mind by selecting from several group types like classroom, clubs and organizations, friends and family, create your own, and more.

After you create a group, you can add as many topics as you'd like. Topics are conversation starters for members to begin participating and responding with videos.
