Groups on social networking and messaging platforms enable users to communicate with others in a compartmentalized and targeted manner. However, curating such groups requires manual effort and does not support scenarios in which users wish to communicate with context-specific groups that are dynamic and transient. This disclosure describes techniques that enable dynamically creation and update of user groups based on user location. A messaging backend can enable users to communicate with others in the dynamic location-based groups connected to specific locations. The techniques enable seamless formation and update of context-specific groups without manual effort.
