Facebook-owned WhatsApp has recently rolled out the ‘Messenger Room’ feature which allows users to carry out a group video call with up to 50 people simultaneously.
Using the Messenger app or by opening the Messenger website in mobile or web browser, one can create rooms where larger groups can be on a video chat. They can then send invite links to their contacts and group chats in WhatsApp so they can join these rooms, even if they don’t have a Facebook account or the Messenger app.
Follow These Steps to Create a ‘Messenger Room’ Via WhatsApp
Step 1: Open WhatsApp Web or Desktop
Step 2: Go to the individual chat you want to select for video call.
Step 3: Tap on the attachments icon on the screen
Step 4: Click on the ‘Rooms’ option
Step 5: Tap on the ‘Continue in Messenger’ option
Step 6: The application will send you a link that you can send to your contacts so that they can join the same room by simply clicking on that particular link .
