Facebook has launched a new video calling feature. This feature aims at helping users across Facebook’s platforms join in and talk to each other. Since then, the company is integrating the feature in many social media platforms at an impressive speed. After bringing Messenger Rooms Integration to WhatsApp, the company will now bring the feature on Instagram as well.
The image-sharing platform now allows users to create Messenger Rooms through the Instagram Direct page in the app.
Head over to the Instagram Direct page within the app. Tap on the video chat icon. Here, you will see the new ‘Create a room’ option at the very top. Tapping on this will prompt you to sign in to Instagram using your Facebook account and then you can create your Messenger Room. You can send invite links to your friends and family, and anyone with the link can join regardless of whether they have a Facebook account or not.
The feature is rolling out already and you should have it inside the Instagram app. If not, make sure you have updated the app to the latest version available. The Messenger Rooms Integration will let you add up to 50 participants in a video call. Users who don’t even have a Facebook account can also join the Video chat with a link shared with them.
Facebook has taken video calls into a new level, this new Rooms Integration is a tough competition to the other video calling apps like Skype and Zoom. You can also create your private rooms here.
