After announcing Messenger Rooms last month, Facebook is now rolling out the feature to all users globally.
Last month, Facebook announced the introduction of its Zoom competitor – Messenger Rooms – a feature that allows users to create a room hosting video calls with up to 50 people at a time. The feature is free and available to anyone – including people who don’t have a Facebook account – and doesn’t have a time limit.
Messenger Rooms can be created from within Messenger or Facebook. When a room is created, a link to it can be shared with anyone, inviting them to join. To create a room, you will need to download the latest version of the Facebook and Messenger mobile app from the Apple Store or Google Play Store and the Messenger Desktop app from the Microsoft Store or Mac App Store.
As of last week, Messenger Rooms is also now available in Facebook Groups and Events, adding to the list two more places you can create them. Facebook takes privacy and security very seriously, so you can choose who can see and join a room or remove people from a room and lock it if you don’t want anyone else to join.
Facebook users globally can now create a room from Messenger, while users in North America can create a room from Facebook. Facebook is now also starting to roll out the ability to host up to 50 people in a room globally.
More features will be coming to Messenger Rooms in the next few months. We will update you as soon as more information becomes available.
