Facebook Messenger Rooms is getting ready to be among the popular video calling platforms. Due to the global COVID-19 epidemic, video calling applications have become one of the most frequently used tools when schools and businesses are moving to homes.
Zoom from these applications is one of the most used alternatives. In the past few days, we have informed you that Facebook has developed a new platform as a competitor. So how to use Facebook’s new feature, Messenger Rooms?
How to search for Facebook Messenger Rooms?
In Facebook Messenger Rooms searches, the number of people in the groups can be up to 50. In addition, people who do not have a Facebook account may also be included in the search. At the same time, there will be no time restrictions in searches as in Zoom.
When it is accessible in our country, opening a Messenger Rooms conversation will consist of the following steps.
- Open the Messenger app. Switch to the People tab at the bottom right of the screen.
- Click the Create Room button and choose the people you want to join.
While users are looking for alternative apps due to Zoom’s vulnerabilities, Facebook seems to be able to help with this move. Despite having big problems with privacy and security on time on Facebook, CEO Mark Zuckerberg stated in his live broadcast on Friday that the company “behaved very carefully” and “took the lesson” from other platforms with security problems.
As a security measure, Facebook Messenger Rooms gives the user the ability to control who sees the call and lock the room. If the room is unlocked, anyone with a link shared will be able to join the room. The owner of the room will be able to control who is attending and will have the power to remove any participants.
In addition, users will be able to report a room to Facebook for violating Facebook rules, but according to the company’s statement, these reports will not contain any audio or video without calling.
It will also bring Rooms to Facebook, Instagram Direct and WhatsApp applications. According to the company statement, the new platform will be available “in some countries” this week and will be accessible to the whole world “in the coming weeks”.
