Whatsapp Messenger Room: How to Make Video Calls with 50 Contacts at a Time
Whatsapp Messenger Rooms: Users must have a Facebook account to create a room that takes place outside of WhatsApp. Also, video chats in Messenger Rooms are not end-to-end encrypted, unlike WhatsApp video calls.
Facebook recently launched the Messenger Rooms feature to take on the popular Zoom video conferencing platform and Google Meet. The feature is available to everyone and will soon be accessible via WhatsApp, allowing its users to make group calls directly with friends on Facebook. The option is out now for some beta users and is expected to roll out to a wider user base worldwide very soon.
The Messenger Rooms shortcut within WhatsApp will switch you to the Messenger app or Messenger website on your mobile or web browser. Users must have a Facebook account to create a room that takes place outside of WhatsApp. Also, video chats in Messenger Rooms are not end-to-end encrypted, unlike WhatsApp video calls.
How to Use the WhatsApp Messenger Rooms
Accessing the Messenger Rooms shortcut on WhatsApp is more or less the same for Android, iPhone and desktop applications. This is how you can access Messenger Rooms through WhatsApp:
On an Android device, to create and share a room link, open WhatsApp> go to the Calls tab> Create a room. You can also open an individual chat and then go to Attach> Room or open a group chat (with five or more participants) and tap the group call icon> Create a room.
You will be asked to “Continue on Messenger” which will take you out of WhatsApp and take you to the Messenger application or website. You can type the name of the room you created and send the link on WhatsApp to invite users.
For those who have been invited to join a room, they can do so by tapping the link and opening it in their mobile browser or Messenger application. All you need is to have an updated Messenger application and log in with your Facebook account.
The procedure for creating and joining a room is the same as for an iPhone. For the WhatsApp Web and WhatsApp Desktop application, you must click Menu or the drop-down menu or the three-dot icon on the chat list and select “Create a room”. You can also enter an individual or group chat and click Attach> Room. It will be taken from WhatsApp and taken to the Messenger website in your Internet browser.
