Facebook Messenger launches Group Calling For Upto 50 People

Watch out Skype, here comes a competitive feature update from Facebook !

David Marcus, Facebook head of messaging products announced that the Messenger app will now support group calls for every user. This feature was announced on Wednesday and is now rolled out to every user.

You will need to update to the latest version of the Messenger app for the group calling feature to work.

To make use of the new Messenger feature, you only need to click on the icon in the Messenger window that signifies a phone and then pick the users you want to include in the group call, or sometimes called conference call. After completing the list of call participants, they will all receive a notification from Facebook that the call is about to begin.

About Group video chats, Facebook Messenger does not support it yet. If you want to have a group video chat, then it is recommended that you use Skype or Google Hangouts instead. It is likely to be Facebook will launch group video chats at some point to stay competitive against other messaging apps.
