Facebook has today announced a cool new update to Facebook Messenger Rooms, live broadcasting.
In a blog post today Facebook stated:
Today, we’re introducing a replacement thanks to broadcast live to Facebook from Messenger Rooms. Turning your room into a Facebook Live broadcast makes it easy to travel accept up to 50 people. Whether you’re hosting a book club with friends, interviewing a panel of experts, teaching a fitness class, or broadcasting together with your friends for fun, going live from an area allows you to interact with audiences of any size.
Messenger Rooms are Facebook’s answer to Zoom calls, joinable video group calls of up to 50 people. With this new feature, you will be ready to broadcast a call of up to 50 people live because it happens:
Create an area which will go live right from Facebook or Messenger web, and invite anyone to hitch , albeit they do not have a Facebook account. As an area creator, you’ll broadcast your room to a Profile, Page or Group, and invite people to tune . By bringing Messenger Rooms and Facebook Live together, we’re unlocking new ways for people to attach and make content even while they’re apart.
Broadcasting is controlled by the space creator, who also controls who is allowed onto the decision . If an area goes live, everyone within the room has got to opt-in to participate. As noted, the feature could have many different uses, for instance broadcasting an interview, a music event, a book club, an interview or a fitness class.
It is rolling bent Facebook and Messenger web from today in “some countries”, but will soon expand to all or any countries where Messenger Rooms is out there , also on Facebook and therefore the Messenger mobile app, also as Messenger’s desktop app.
