Facebook today announced the global availability of Messenger Rooms groups video call. Users can create a room to host joinable free video calls with up to 50 people with no time limit. Which makes it easy to spend quality time with friends, loved ones and people who share your interests.
The Video Call Rooms can be created right from Messenger or Facebook. Users can share links to invite anyone to join, even if the user doesn’t have a Facebook account.
Anyone can start and share rooms on Facebook through News Feed, Groups and Events, so it’s easy to drop by whenever needed. Users can choose who can see and join the room. There's also an option to remove people from the room and lock the room if users don’t want anyone else to join.
This Zoom alternative video call feature is available for desktop and mobile.
To create a room, the device must have the latest version of the Facebook and Messenger mobile app from the Apple Store or Google Play Store. And the Messenger Desktop app from the Microsoft Store or Mac App Store.
Facebook users all over the world can create a room from Messenger. Users in North America can create a room from Facebook. Additionally, the room has the capacity to host up to 50 people globally.
Facebook is working on to add more features to Messenger Rooms group video call in the coming months.
