We inherently use Facebook Messenger as a primary form of communication (especially since it was made mandatory). Therefore, the Facebook keeps updating its messenger regularly. Sometimes it becomes annoying because once or twice in a month a notification pop-ups asking you to update the messenger. These updates were just internal and no any visible change could be seen.
But today, the Messenger rolled out a new update with the feature of Instant Video. Basically, this is only a little bit upgraded version of video chat but seems very useful. Basically, what is does is, if you are chatting and suddenly you want to display something, there will be video icon on top right corner that will instantly pop up the real-time feed from your camera. This new feature is opposed to the old way of video calling as other parties have to accept the video call. But, now you can quickly show something you are seeing while out and about.
The video feed will float on top right corner of the phone, as it is meant to be supplement the text conversation. Audio won’t be enabled by default; the recipient can toggle it with just a tap.
And of course, both the parties need to have the latest version of the Messenger installed. What do you think about the new feature? Don’t forget to comment below:
