Facebook has now launched its latest videoconferencing feature, Messenger Rooms, which allows up to 50 people to video chat at a time! Unlike zoom, there’s no limit to how long you can talk, and you don’t even need a Facebook account to join a room. All you need is Facebook Messenger, which is already widely used.
The format is perfect for community groups and organisations already using facebook messenger.
Messenger Rooms arrives as some people are looking for an alternative to Zoom, which has faced a number of security and privacy issues in the past two months
How to create a Facebook Messenger Room
- Open the Messenger app.
- Tap the People tab at the bottom right of the screen.
- Tap Create a Room, and select the people who you want to join.
- To share a room with people who don’t have a Facebook account, you can share the link with them.
