With many countries imposing quarantine, communication sites were quick to develop video conference call applications, which greatly contributed to making up for real-life communication.
According to “timesnownews”, Facebook’s global photo and video site, Instagram, quickly used the long-awaited Messenger Room feature to make a group video call. Instagram users can now make video calls with up to 50 people with the new feature at one time, up to a maximum of 6 people.
Although the option to create a “Messenger Room” is available to everyone on the “Messenger” application, but CEO Mark Zuckerberg recently said that other applications owned by Facebook, such as Instagram and WhatsApp, will also get support for the new feature.

“You can start the platform from Messenger or Facebook, and it will soon be possible to create rooms and join them from directly from” Instagram “and WhatsApp,” Facebook privacy chief Irene Eagan said in a statement. The person who creates the room controls the settings for who can join, and how easily it can be found whether the link will be enabled or shared.
“Regardless of whether you use the rooms through your Facebook account or join as a guest, we do not watch or listen to your audio or video calls,” she added.
