Facebook is launching a series of new products to expand its options in the video chat segment
Scandal or lack of success and the high number of Zoom usage has broken every statistic. And the reaction from the competition was not long in coming. Facebook unveiled Messenger Rooms, a total reconception of the app’s video calling service.
Up to 50 people can access this video service, and people should not be invited individually, Facebook users can post the link on their wall or in groups or event pages. Furthermore, participants do not have to have a Messenger or Facebook account, a browser is enough and you can become a part of it.
But on the other hand, the example of Zoom infiltrations has increased security levels and the caller can close the room to unwanted people.
All the gallantry of creative backgrounds and new filters are also present here. 14 new filters that provide professional lighting for the environment and the face. Messenger Rooms are starting to spread today, the move came as a result of high demand, more than 700 million video calls are made every day on Messenger and WhatsApp
Also, Facebook is doubling the number of people in WhatsApp video calling from four to eight people, adding video calls to Facebook Dating as well, adding new live streaming features to both Facebook and Instagram.
New Facebook products are coming as global pandemic has forced hundreds of millions of people to stay inside and rely on digital tools for almost everything.
