While Zoom has been taking numerous steps to address various security and privacy concerns that have arisen in recent weeks, there are still plenty of people seeking alternatives to the video conferencing platform.
Axar.az reports citing foreign media that now Facebook is trying to make its Messenger tool a viable option.
With Facebook Messenger Rooms, the social media giant is giving people the option of conducting video chats with up to 50 people at a time. Unlike the free version of Zoom, there is no time limit on chats in Messenger Rooms, and as an added bonus there is no need to have a Facebook account to use it.
Only the person setting up a meeting needs to have a Facebook account, and other participants can be invited to join in. No software needs to be downloaded or installed as Rooms can be accessed using just a web browser. Facebook is pitching the new feature as an "easy to spend quality time with friends, loved ones and people who share your interests", but it's something that could very easily be used for business meetings as well.
