Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Zoom has become synonymous for online social networking, and to beat it Facebook has launched “Facebook Messenger Rooms” on Friday. With this video chat tool, you can chat with up to 50 people without any time limit.
If you don’t have a Facebook account then you can also use this feature and hang out with your buddies without scheduling a call. If you are going to host a virtual birthday party, a meeting with your colleagues, or something else then you just need to stake an open room in your Facebook news feed, and groups. People will join whenever they will notice or online.
From a few weeks, people are facing security concerns in Zoom such as Zoombobings, and password leaks but because of its dominance in the video conferencing market still the app is popular. Another reason to use Zoho is its free version that lets its users make group chats with up to 100 participants. Moreover, Zoom’s easy to use and simple interface makes it an ideal video call app for newbies. Now the question is that will Facebook overcome its popularity with Facebook Messenger Rooms app?
This new intuitive of Facebook will roll out some regions this week and later it will be available across the globe.
