Popular messaging platform WhatsApp has unveiled a new feature called the Messenger Room which allows users to carry out a group video call with up to 50 people simultaneously.
A user can create rooms where larger groups can collectively be on a video chat by using the Messenger app or by opening the Messenger website in mobile or web browser.
They can then send invite links to their contacts and group chats in WhatsApp so they can join these rooms, even if they dont have a Facebook account or the Messenger app.
Step 1: Open WhatsApp Web or Desktop
Step 2: Go to the individual chat you want to select for the 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
The Messenger Room feature will only work for groups that have more than five members.
