How to start video calls of up to 50 people from WhatsApp with Messenger Rooms
We are going to explain to you how to start video calls of up to 50 people from WhatsApp using its integration with Messenger Rooms. It is the alternative to Zoom created by Facebook to be able to make massive group video calls from Messenger. The social network has begun to integrate this technology into other applications, such as WhatsApp.
In this way, if video calls with eight WhatsApp people fall short, you will find a link to start them for more people in Messenger Rooms. It is not something that is implemented directly in WhatsApp, so you will need to have both applications installed, since WhatsApp will send you to Messenger to start your conference room there, and you can then share the links on WhatsApp.
It must be said that this function is beginning to reach the beta versions of WhatsApp now. This means that in order to use it, you will have to download the beta version of the application on your mobile, although in the future it is to be expected that it will also end up reaching the final version that we all have installed.
How to start Messenger Rooms from WhatsApp
There are two ways to start a Mass Messenger Rooms video call from WhatsApp. The first is from a conversation. What you have to do is, once inside a chat, click on the clip icon that you have below to send a file to the other person or members of a group.
Once you have clicked on the clip icon, in the menu that appears you have to click on the room option that will appear in the beta version of WhatsApp. As you can see, the icon is the same as that of Messenger Rooms.
The other option to start a Messenger Room from WhatsApp It is through the call section. In WhatsApp, instead of clicking on the Chats tab where you see all your conversations, you must click on the Calls tab. There, you can click on the Messenger Rooms button that you will see at the bottom right, above the option to initiate a new call.
Regardless of the method chosen, you will always find yourself a message in which you are linked to start a room in Messenger. As we have told you at the beginning, you must also have this application installed because group messages do not open directly in WhatsApp.
This will take you directly to the process of creating your room in Messenger as we have already explained. They simplify it to the maximum, so that all you have to do is click on the Create room button to start automatically.
Once you have created the room, you will have to click on the button Send link by WhatsApp that will appear if you have started the process through the other messaging application. You will have it in blue at the bottom of the screen.
If you have started the process directly from a chat, you will share the link with this person. If you have started it from the Calls section, you can share it with up to 5 contacts you have on WhatsApp. In both cases, You will be able to copy the link to send it to other people you want to participate.
