Meanwhile, a video conferencing app called Zoom has suddenly caught everyone's attention. Why is Facebook lagging behind? The world's largest social media platform has come up with a new feature to bet with their messenger.

Introducing Messenger Rooms

Messenger Rooms make it easy to spend quality time with friends, loved ones, and people who share your interests. Create a room right from Messenger or Facebook, and invite anyone to join your video call, even if they don’t have a Facebook account. Rooms will soon hold up to 50 people with no time limit.

Host celebrations, gather a book club, or just hang out on the couch with friends. You don’t need to call someone and hope it’s a good time or checks everyone’s calendar first. You can start and share rooms on Facebook through News Feed, Groups, and Events, so it’s easy for people to drop by. Soon we’ll add ways to create rooms from Instagram Direct, WhatsApp, and Portal, too.

If your friends or communities create rooms that are open to you, you’ll see them on Facebook so you can find things to do and people to hang out with. When you’re invited to a room, you can join from your phone or computer — no need to download anything to get started. If you have the Messenger app, you can play with AR effects like bunny ears, and new AI-powered features like immersive 360 backgrounds and mood lighting.

When you create a room, you choose who can see and join it. You can remove people from the call and lock a room if you don’t want anyone else to enter. Read more about the controls you have and how we built Rooms with privacy and security in mind.

Messenger Rooms is rolling out in some countries this week and will expand to the rest of the world in the coming weeks.

Using this new feature of Facebook Messenger called Messenger Rooms, you can make a group video call and share it with everyone through the link. Anyone who has the link will be able to join the video call directly without a Facebook account and without signing in anywhere (much like Zoom). You can set the privacy of these calls if you want (who can watch or join this video conference).
