Facebook rolls out video call feature in WhatsApp for Web
New Delhi : In a time when video calls have become a daily thing, Facebook has rolled out its brand new feature for its web users. Facebook's messenger room has been integrated with the WhatsApp for Web to enable users to make video calls right from their desktops.
The integration of Facebook messenger has been currently restricted to only web and the company has not released any info on its release for the mobile version too.
Users can open the web to use Messenger Rooms via WhatsApp and video call other people. Apart from this, web users will now be able to share screens as well.
If the users fail to find the newly integrated option in WhatsApp for Web, then the company has recommended checking if the application is running on the latest version. Messenger Rooms are available on 2.2031.4 version of the application.
How to use the Messenger Rooms
One of the two ways to open Rooms is to open WhatsApp Web and click on the top left section of the screen. There will be an option to create the room. Upon selecting the option, two more options will appear asking to either “Continue in Messenger” or “Cancel”. After clicking on “Continue in Messenger,” the user will be directed to the default browser and will be asked to log into a Facebook account. Users will be able to create a room then and ask others to join.
Another way of opening Rooms is going to one individual chat screen and selecting the attachment option. After clicking the attachment, an option of “Room” will appear. After clicking on this, Messenger Rooms can be accessed.
