Facebook now has a Zoom-like feature



Social media, Facebook, has upgraded its messaging app that works like the now famous Zoom.

Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg made the announcement via a Facebook post that the company’s answer to Zoom will now be available in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.

Facebook Messenger Room works similar to Zoom, as all users need to join a video chat is a URL as opposed to a new account. It also can allow up to 50-people to attend one call which in unlimited, and everyone is displayed on screen.

Users can also can choose who can see and join their room; remove people from your room, or even lock the room to allow no one else to join

Messenger Rooms is now available to everyone in the US, Canada and Mexico, and will be available to everyone globally in the next week!With so many people at home around the world, we’re all relying on video chat to feel present with the people we care about. WhatsApp and Messenger are already the most popular video calling services globally, but for large groups most of the video services out there are designed for work, not social interactions. Messenger Rooms is group video chat designed for social interactions. Rooms have no time limits, can host up to 50 people, and you can create them for free across Messenger, Facebook, and soon Instagram and WhatsApp as well. You can create a private room and invite a few friends with a link, or you can create a room for one of your groups, or for an event you’re planning. You can also start a room for all your friends at the top of your News Feed and just see who stops by to say hi. You don’t need to schedule time to hang out like other video conferencing tools — it’s much more serendipitous and fun. I’ve really enjoyed using it as we’ve been building it. I’ve gotten to catch up with a lot of people I miss seeing around but wouldn’t have necessarily called on my own. Try it out and I’m interested to see what you think!
