WHATSAPP users will soon see a whole new functionality being tested out on iOS and Android that’s crucial for these turbulent times.
WhatsApp users were told regarding the imminent launch of a new functionality that could prove crucial to chat app users. With too many people needing to remain at home due to security steps being implemented across the globe, the opportunity to remotely connect has never been more important.
As the pandemic struck, apps like Zoom and Houseparty were experiencing a major upswing of subscribers, due to a significant increase of work and social video meetups.
These popular networks that seemed purpose-built for those periods take advantage of market shortages to increase their customer base considerably, but competitors are catching up.
Google recently released a new Chrome plugin to incorporate its Meet video chat program.
Though Facebook has replied by announcing Messenger Rooms, which facilitates video sharing for up to 50 users, to the growth of Houseparty and Zoom.
Right after the launch of the Messaging Rooms, WABeta ‘s expert WhatsApp news site found signs of a backdoor to this facility heading through the chat app.
After perusing through coding, WABeta found signs that Messaging Rooms support for the iOS and Ios devices will be accessible to WhatsApp.
This functionality often applies to Instagram, ensuring that consumers of such apps will hop into a Messenger Rooms call without installing or signing into another device.
When WABeta discovered the upcoming WhatsApp element, it was uncertain when it would be published. But things are moving at a rapid pace now with Facebook confirming their Zoom rival ‘s surprise release on Thursday May 14.
And not long after a new WhatsApp beta download has been rolled out for Android, which includes integration of Messenger Room. WABetaInfo Twitter, which posted on Friday May 15, confirmed this patch release: “WhatsApp is rolling out Messenger Rooms shortcuts for Android beta users!”
“WhatsApp is gradually rolling out the feature for specific countries and users. The activation will continue in the next few hours/days.”
It continues to be seen how long it would take to check this latest feature and whether the introduction of Messenger Rooms would achieve a general release exactly.
Although you should also check out Chat Rooms on the Facebook or Chat smartphone applications for iOS and Ios, or the Windows and Mac desktop device.
“Messenger Rooms lets you create a room to host joinable free video calls with up to 50 people with no time limit, making it easy to spend quality time with friends, loved ones and people who share your interests. Rooms can be created right from Messenger or Facebook and gives you the ability to share links to invite anyone to join, even if they don’t have a Facebook account.”
“Connecting with friends and family has never been easier or more spontaneous. You can start and share rooms on Facebook through News Feed, Groups and Events, so it’s easy for you to drop by whenever you want. You can choose who can see and join your room or remove people from your room and lock the room if you don’t want anyone else to join.”
