Facebook has rolled out a fresh new update of its Messenger App. The new update interesting update like Group Video Chat and Snapchat like filters on video chat. Now the Facebook users can video chat with 6 people at once.
There had been one-to-one video chatting facility on Messenger for some time, but if you wish to video chat with more than one person then you would have to opt for other apps like Skype. Now with the update, you can directly video chat with the member of your group chat. You can video chat up to 50 people at once but for now, it will limit to only six people.
To start a group video chat, simply open up an existing group text chat or start a new one. There will be a video button in the upper right to switch over. Everyone in the conversation will be notified and given the opportunity to join via video. You can also directly ring people to get them to join.
The Messenger app has been the app people love to hate, but with the addition of group video chatting the app will be more useful than WhatsApp, which recently added one-to-one video chatting some weeks back.
The update is currently rolled out for the IOS user, but the Android users should expect the update soon. The update has rolled out recently, so give it sometimes if the features are not showing up for you yet.
