How to start video calls of up to 50 people from WhatsApp Web
We are going to explain to you how to start video calls of up to 50 people from WhatsApp Web using Facebook Messenger Rooms. It is a complex process similar to the one that you can also do on the mobile version of WhatsApp or on Instagram, and which is now also available on the web version of WhatsApp.
We are going to explain the process step by step, since the Rooms are not directly integrated into the messaging application, but in WhatsApp you will see the option to open them in another tab. Then, in that other tab, you will create the Messenger room, which you can then share again on WhatsApp. It is not the most intuitive method in the world, and that is why we are going to explain it to you step by step.
Facebook Messenger Rooms on WhatsApp Web
The first thing you have to do is log in with WhatsApp Web in your browser. Once you have it open, enter any conversation and click on the clip icon to share file that you have on the top right. Yes, strangely enough, you can start the process in any random conversation, even if that person or group is not going to participate in your mass video call later.
When you click on the share button with the clip icon, a window will open with various options. In her, click on the room option that will appear at the end of the whole with the icon of the Messenger rooms.
If this is the first time you do this, an information window will appear explaining what Messenger is. And the rest of the time you will see the window that appears on the screen, in which you are simply notified that you are going to go to Messenger to create a room. Here, click on the Go to Messenger button to open it in another tab.
When you go to the new tab, you will be shown a message in which you have to click on the Enter option with your Facebook profile, with which you will enter directly to the Messenger room using your profile. If you’ve never used it or if you haven’t signed in with Messenger, you may have a few steps in between.
Now comes the important part. Once you have entered the room and are looking at your webcam, you only need the rest of the people to enter. What you should do for that is select the address from the browser’s address bar and hit Control + C to copy it to the clipboard.
Now just go sending the link to the rest of the people you want to join the video call massive. To do this, go to their conversations or open new chats with them and press Control + V to paste the address you just copied. You can paste it in the different chats with several people, or make a group with everyone and paste it there so that everyone enters at the same time.
