Facebook Messenger Room was launched few months ago and it could be created from the main feed within the app. It could be used even if someone doesn’t have the Messenger app installed on their smartphone. All the user’s has to do is to join a group call through a link on their News Feed, Group or Page.
Facebook is making it easier for people to use Rooms through Messenger. For that, a new user interface has been designed with comprehensive detailing for the user’s to be able to create Rooms within the Messenger app. With the help of this updated UI, users will be able to customize some featured settings, such as giving a name to their activity. Facebook also provides Activity Name suggestions, so users can choose a name for their activity from a list aswell.
That’s not all there is yet another update that will enable users schedule their video calls by setting time and date for the group chat just like in the zoom app. Managing the invite list is also possible, all these features are possible and available if the user uses Rooms through their News Feed. However, in Messenger, there are some extra controls such as the users can even set a customized background for their Rooms by uploading their photo or any photo at all. An option is also available which will enable the users play a video in the background while having a video call.
This new update has started to roll out in Messenger on mobile phones. It is expected to launch for desktop platforms sooner than later.
Background customizations will be available in the coming weeks. Using Rooms through Messenger will be easier for users. We will have to wait to see how the majority reacts to this extension of Rooms on to the Messenger app.
So far, ‘Rooms’ has seen a lot of positive feedback from it users all over the world. Especially during these global pandemic going on and most of the work is still being carried out from home, this feature has helped people hold their official events and meeting through this platform.
