WhatsApp Web has announced a number of new features which promise to deliver a seamless experience to users. From Messenger Rooms to extending WhatsApp group call limit to eight to introducing Instagram group live feature – Facebook is going all out to introduce new features all across the world.
Messenger Rooms is Facebook’s way of competing with the likes of video calling platforms such as the Zoom, Google Hangouts, Skype and many others. As per a new report, WhatsApp Web will soon get a Messenger Rooms support.
When the world is locked down, video calling platforms have become the way of life for people who are working from home or are living away from family and friends. Platforms like Zoom, Google Duo, Skype, Google Hangouts and others have received massive traction all across the world.
This latest report was released by Sensor Tower which says that in April 2020 Zoom became the most downloaded app in the world, and that India accounted for maximum downloads despite the concerns and warning issued by the Indian government about the privacy issues with the app.
In order to compete with Zoom and other similar platforms Facebook has already introduced Messenger Rooms last month via a Facebook Live. When this feature was announced, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg informed said that Messenger Rooms will be supported all across WhatsApp, Instagram, and also Portal.
This announcement is the first sign of Facebook finally working towards integrating Messenger, WhatsApp, and Instagram all into one as he been as suggested many times in the past. It has already been announced that integrating all the platforms is Facebook’s way of making it a seamless experience to users all across Facebook family apps.
As per reports, the latest WhatsApp for Web version has got a shortcut for Messenger Rooms and clicking on the links, the users will be taken to the Messenger Rooms window to start the video call with their friends.
