Seems Facebook is releasing an update to the Messenger App to allow for Group Video Chats in Facebook Messenger. According to a post in the Facebook Newsroom, the Group Video Chat will be “super easy to use”, and will allow up to 6 people at the same time to chat with video. For those with larger groups than 6, there is an option where up to 50 friends can join in a chat via audio (of which 6 of the 50 can be on video).
How Does It Work
According to the newsroom post,
To get started, you’ll need the latest version of Messenger. All you have to do is jump into an existing group conversation, or create a new one. Then tap on the video icon on the upper right of the screen to enter the video chat and everyone in the group will be notified. Each person can join when they are ready with just one tap. For an extra nudge, you can also directly ring just a few people or the whole group.
So starting today, the group video chat is rolling out for those on Android, iOS, and for the desktop version of FB Messenger, worldwide.
