Messenger Rooms starting to roll out for every Facebook user

-

At the end of April, Facebook unwrapped a new feature called Facebook Messenger Rooms, capitalizing on the huge demand for video conferencing during this pandemic.

Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook founder, and CEO earlier today announced the new feature and mentioned, 

WhatsApp and Messenger are already the most popular video calling services globally, but for large groups most of the video services out there are designed for work, not social interactions. Messenger Rooms is group video chat designed for social interactions. Rooms have no time limits, can host up to 50 people, and you can create them for free across Messenger, Facebook, and soon Instagram and WhatsApp as well.

Messenger Rooms can now host calls up to 50 individuals for both public and private rooms. The Rooms hosting 50 individuals will be free of cost, and there will be no time limit, putting Messenger Room ahead of Zoom, which allows a 40-minute time limit for free accounts.

Messenger Rooms is now available to everyone in the US, Canada and Mexico, and will be available to everyone globally in the next week!With so many people at home around the world, we're all relying on video chat to feel present with the people we care about. WhatsApp and Messenger are already the most popular video calling services globally, but for large groups most of the video services out there are designed for work, not social interactions. Messenger Rooms is group video chat designed for social interactions. Rooms have no time limits, can host up to 50 people, and you can create them for free across Messenger, Facebook, and soon Instagram and WhatsApp as well. You can create a private room and invite a few friends with a link, or you can create a room for one of your groups, or for an event you're planning. You can also start a room for all your friends at the top of your News Feed and just see who stops by to say hi. You don't need to schedule time to hang out like other video conferencing tools — it's much more serendipitous and fun. I've really enjoyed using it as we've been building it. I've gotten to catch up with a lot of people I miss seeing around but wouldn't have necessarily called on my own. Try it out and I'm interested to see what you think!
