Facebook Messenger Rooms can talk to up to 50 people. Classes will be able to come together easily thanks to this system planned for education.
With the coronavirus emerging all over the world, many people are working from home or taking lessons. Nowadays when video calling applications such as Zoom, Skype, and Microsoft Teams are very popular, a move came from Facebook. Facebook announces its solution called Facebook Messenger Rooms, which supports video calls up to 50 people at the same time.
Messenger Rooms is available in some countries. It is expected to be available in other countries in the coming weeks. Also, when the update comes to you, you'll be able to create a chat room from Facebook or the Messenger app on your phone. In other words, Facebook Messenger Rooms will not be released as a separate application. It will already come as an update to Facebook and Messenger.
One feature that distinguishes Messenger Rooms from other applications is, you can log in without your Facebook account. You will be able to join it with a link so that users can easily access it. Users can also easily share video calls and events in the News Feed.
In particular, it plans to support Facebook users to start a video call with Instagram DM and WhatsApp.
"Host celebrations, gather a book club, or just hang out on the couch with friends," Facebook suggests. "You don’t need to call someone and hope it’s a good time or check everyone’s calendar first."
The roll-out of Facebook Messenger Rooms – which Facebook says will happen in the weeks to come – gives you another way to stay in contact with friends and family when we're all indoors shut down and separated.
You can use virtual reality effects such as bunny ears or aliens, 360-degree and realistic environments (think the beach or a royal palace), and mood lighting with the Messenger smartphone app.
The Rooms service is free of charge and Facebook claims it has no plans to put ads on it or make money off it.
