Messenger Rooms is being the star tool of the year of the company directed by Mark Zuckerberg, with which it tries to compete directly with rival video calling tools such as Zoom or Google Meet in this 2020, a year that is characterized by the increase in video calls among the general public as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, serving as a contact point with family and / or friends as far as personal matters are concerned.
And to continue strengthening Messenger Rooms, Facebook is rolling out its live broadcast feature, Facebook Live, which allow the creators of the rooms turn them into live broadcasts, leaving the different creative options for use in the hands of the creators themselves.
According to Facebook, the creators of rooms can transmit them live in their profiles, pages or groups, being able to control aspects such as who can see the transmissions and who can participate in them, being able to also add and remove participants within the broadcasts themselves, and even block and unblock the rooms themselves during them.
For its part, participants in a room will be notified when the room is to be converted to a broadcast, having the option to join the invitation they will get to participate in power. Likewise, they will also have the option to withdraw from the broadcast at any time.
Facebook reserves the ability to collect everything that happens in live broadcasts for verify compliance with community standards established by the company.
For now integration is taking place in some countries (does not mention which ones) in the web version of Facebook and Messenger to soon expand to all countries where Messenger Rooms is available, extending the integration also to the mobile application of Facebook and Messenger and the desktop application of Messenger, as promised by the company. .
