Facebook Messenger Rooms, a new video chat option for up to 50 people, can now be launched from the Instagram Direct inbox.
Messenger Rooms were just launched last month as part of Facebook’s rapid expansion of video capabilities. Designed for spontaneous web-based hangouts, Messenger Rooms can be created and shared for anyone to join.
Unlike regular video calls, which require a direct invite, Messenger Rooms can be joined by clicking a shared link. That’s what makes them more casual than other video chat options.
Up to 50 users can join a Messenger Room at the same time. Users can drop in and out as the call goes on, which means a Room could potentially have hundreds of people go through it.
