Introducing Facebook Messenger Rooms and More Ways to Connect When You’re Apart.

In 2020 virus called; Covid-19 change everything. Even the way we communicate with each other.

Something as simple as getting together with friends is no longer possible and large companies like Facebook have responded to this need.

On 24th April 2020, Facebook launched the ‘Facebook Rooms’ option.

Usability

You can create a video chat room via Facebook or the Messenger app and invite up to 50 people to join a video call.

When you’re creating a Messenger Room, Facebook will give you the option of creating an open link that anyone, even non-Facebook members, can access.

Once you’ve selected your audience permissions, you can tap on the “Share Link” button and send the created link to other participants via email, WhatsApp, Messenger, Slack, or any other preferred platform.

The best? There are no time limits on calls and even non-Facebook members, can access.

You even have the option to share your screen with another participant, you’ll have to download the Facebook Messenger app on your Windows PC or Mac.

While Facebook has also grappled with many security and privacy problems, CEO Mark Zuckerberg said in a live stream earlier this month that the company has been “very careful” and tried to “learn the lessons” from issues with other video conference tools in recent months.

Zuckerberg also added;

In other releases, the social network will reintegrate the Live With the feature, which allows people to make live videos with another person. Facebook also said it will make it easier for people with limited data plans or poor connections to access the live video. Users will be able to listen only to live audios, to avoid data consumption.
