Facebook Messenger has introduced a screen sharing feature for its Android and iOs users for up to 16 participants on a group call. The feature can be accessed on the web and desktop via messenger rooms.
According to Facebook “the new feature makes it easy for people to stay connected and close with their loved ones, even when physically apart.”
While at it, users can still scroll through camera rolls with everyone whom they have shared the screen with and continue with their separate activities like online shopping and checking other social media accounts altogether
Just like Zoom, Users on the Messenger app will be able to share their screens with their friends. Messenger Rooms can have up to 16 people on a group video call on desktop and also share screen to all 16 group members at a time.
Facebook also announced plans to expand the number of people with whom you can share your screen with up to 50 participants. The company is also planning on adding some control features soon that would let Messenger Rooms creators decide whether to limit the ability to share screen to themselves or allow all participants to do the same.
Reportedly, Facebook is also working on plans for integrating its Messenger app with WhatsApp. Notable leaker Wabetainfo.com suggested a possible integration that the company might be working on and will be due for release soon.
The post goes ahead to confirm that the process very complicated feature and it requires so much time. So there are equal chances of the integration happening and not happening.
