Last Friday, Facebook started activating Messenger Rooms for all users, a video calling system of up to 50 people integrated into Messenger, but anyone with the link can join. It was a matter of time that this technology was integrated into WhatsApp and now is where some users are already Create and join Messenger Rooms from WhatsApp.
Messenger Rooms is already a function of Facebook Messenger, but WhatsApp is now starting to feature in its beta link create a mission room using native app video calls.
Two ways to do the same
Messenger rooms are suggested as an alternative to Zoom, there one person creates a room and then everyone joins to him. The advantage is that anyone can join even if they don't have Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp. Anyone who creates a room needs to have Facebook Messenger.
The room-building process is complete on Facebook Messenger, although from WhatsApp you can save a few buttons by going directly to a specific section. You have it two ways to do it: from a chat (or group) or on the WhatsApp phone tab.
From the discussion, you'll have to use the overlay icon, where you'll see that something new wasn't there before: Room. Tap the room to see the info window about it Rooms Messenger
You can do the same from the WhatsApp Calls tab. A new floating button will appear with the Messenger Rooms icon, which when you touch will ask you to open Facebook Messenger to continue. After that you have to create a room again, finally posting a link via WhatsApp.
The only difference is that with this latter option, WhatsApp is turned on in sharing mode, for you to select Who do you want to send the room link to? from your contact list. A maximum of five maximum transfers continue to apply, or you can add groups or copy and paste a link from one conversation to another.
This integration of Messenger Rooms with WhatsApp is now launching into other users. As always, it may take some time to be available to all users and to all regions. If you want to be among the first, your best asset is to install the latest beta version of WhatsApp.
