Facebook Messenger Rooms can bring together 50 people in single call

Facebook Messenger Rooms can bring together 50 people in single call”

Once a user will tap on "Room" the app will open a new window with a message that reads, "Create a room in Messenger and send a link to group video chat with anyone, even if they don't have WhatsApp or Messenger".

As spotted by WABetaInfo, the beta versions of WhatsApp for Android and WhatsApp for iOS now feature shortcuts to Messenger Rooms, so users can jump straight from one app to the other.

Earlier this week, social networking giant Facebook launched its online video conferencing tool Messenger Rooms globally for everyone. The host can "choose who can see and join your room or remove people from your room and lock the room if you don't want anyone else to join". The Messenger Rooms shortcut replaces the camera icon and is labeled as simply Room.

Though at first glance, a room size of 50 seems impressive, Zoom can host up to 100 people at once; however, these large Zoom calls can only last a maximum of 40 minutes.

According to a report by WABetaInfo, Facebook has integrated Messenger Rooms into WhatsApp for Android with the 2.20.163 beta update.

This feature is now only available to a limited number of beta users in a few countries, including the United States, but it should expand to more countries soon.
