Facebook announces launch of Messenger Rooms video calling service

US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — The group video service Messenger Rooms on the social network Facebook officially started its work in the USA and Canada on Thursday, May 14. Around the world, the launch of the application is scheduled for next week. This was told by the head of the company Mark Zuckerberg on his page in the social network.

The service was created in response to the growing demand for video calls due to the coronavirus pandemic. You can create such conferences through Facebook or Messenger.

“You can create a separate room (Room) and invite several friends via the link or create a room for one of your groups, as well as for the event you are planning. In addition, you can create a room for all your friends at the top of the news feed and just see who comes to say hello,” Zuckerberg wrote.

There are no time limits in the Messenger Rooms service; up to 50 people can be added to the room. Soon group calls will be available on WhatsApp and Instagram, which are also owned by Zuckerberg.

On April 23, it became known that the collaboration between Facebook and the Indian holding Reliance Industries could turn the WhatsApp messenger into a “super application” following the example of Chinese WeChat.
