Messenger from Facebook Rooms can accommodate up to 50 participants.
The demand for the services of online conferences over the last month has increased exponentially because of the quarantine. So Zoom is now at the peak of his popularity. But the big players of the Internet market also do not sit on the spot and create their own alternatives. First was Microsoft with improved Skype Meet Now, and now to the race, I joined Facebook with its Messenger service, Rooms, reports the Chronicle.info with reference for Today.
With Rooms Messenger users will be able to create a virtual video calls directly from Facebook or Messenger, and then invite everyone to join, even if they have no Facebook account. Room for video calls you can even share with the participants via a news feed on social networks, so it’s easy for attendees to connect. Account is also taken of the wishes of confidentiality: if desired, participants can be excluded from the conversation or to make an appointment are highly individual.
The chat room can accommodate up to 50 people, but is not limited in time, like Zoom. Facebook said that it soon plans to add the ability to create rooms Direct from Instagram, WhatsApp and Portal for greater flexibility. It is also worth noting that Messenger Rooms will have additional interactive features, like change the background 360 degrees, signalling the mood and even AR effect.
Messenger Rooms will be launched in test mode this week in several countries. Few weeks kicks off the global launch around the world.
