With the lifestyle changes happening due to the pandemic, more and more people are now shifting to work-at-home arrangement and digital platforms. Most of the meetings and webinars are now done online thus, it's no surprise that Facebook comes up with something to address this need.

Thus, after a few weeks of waiting, Messenger Rooms is now available here in the Philippines. This latest feature is a new way to hang out with your friends, employees, teammates or clients on video chat.



Create and share a link, and anyone can join, even if they don't have a Facebook account.



The best part about this is that Messenger Rooms lets you host up to 50 people with no time limits. This is a nice alternative to Zoom's free plan of which has a limit of 40 minutes only.

Just like other video conference app, you also have the ability to share your screen which is important during presentations.

Anyway, since this is relatively new. We'll continue using it for a more comprehensive review. Until then, have fun with the "room."

1. Open the Messenger app.
2. Tap the People tab at the bottom right of the screen.
3. Tap Create a Room, and select the people who you want to join.
4. To share a room with people who don't have a Facebook account, you can share the link with them.
