Whenever someone shares or post in the group, the user will see the related Facebook Group discussion in the news feed.

In the "Group" tab, content from the public groups will start displaying according to the user's interest.

Group tab also gives the option to Facebook users to join the recommended groups.

This also means that now, people can join the group discussion without joining the group.

Facebook also gives group admin choice to opt-out from displaying group discussion in the FB news feed. This means that the group can remain public without showing talks to those who are not the member of the group.

This is one of the many updates that Facebook had made this year. It is also a critical Facebook update after the design update from Facebook.

This Group update will increase the social engagement of the group discussions.
