Facebook is making every possible effort to have more and more people connected through it. Owing to this, on 20th February Facebook rolled out an update to Facebook Messenger.
According to a post, Facebook has come up with an update in Messenger that aims at making video and audio chats and calls easier than before. It aims at the ability to add friends and families to an in-progress Messenger video and audio calls and chats.
While this seems exciting, it indeed is a very useful feature that aids in connecting a group of people at the same time through in-progress Messenger video and audio calls and chats.
Imagine you are planning a surprise birthday party for your mom and while discussing it with your brother you wish to add your sister and dad, well, with Facebook’s Messenger update, you can easily add them to the existing chat or call without having to disconnect the chat with your brother. Isn’t that super exciting and easy!!

“In Messenger, you can chat with one person or a group of people. Currently, to turn a one-on-one video or audio chat into a group chat, you must hang up, start a new conversation from your inbox – either by creating an entirely new message or by searching for an old one – and then turn that conversation into a call. But with this new feature, you can simply turn a one-on-one video chat or voice call into a group call – without having to interrupt the conversation.
While in a video chat or on a voice call, tap the screen and select the “add person” icon, and then choose who you want to join. It’s as easy as that! And of course, all your favorite filters and effects are still available, too. Plus, after the chat ends, keep the conversation going in the automatically created group chat in your inbox.”
Getting a chance to add your near and dear ones so seamlessly is a great effort made by Facebook and is supposed to have a prominent impact on Facebook’s popularity. With this new feature you can converse with your friends and family just like you do it in real life.
Facebook has rolled out the Messenger update across the globe for both Android and iOS. So, what are you waiting for? Update your Messenger today and connect with your family and friends in an easy breezy way.
