 Facebook has competed with Zoom on the video conference question.  The US social giant is working to bring a video conferencing version of its messenger app, Messenger Room.

 Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg officially announced the matter on Friday.  In a video call, Zuckerberg said the new service will be able to talk to up to 50 users at a time and will have no fixed deadlines.  - News from the US media CNN.

 Note that Zoom has the facility to talk to 100 people together.  However, that facility is only for 40 minutes.

 Meanwhile, CNN reported that even if you do not have a Facebook account, you can join the 'Messenger Room' video call.  In addition, people who do not have a Facebook account can be sent an invitation to join the video call.  The virtual background of the messenger room will depend on AI and it will be possible to rotate 360 ​​degrees that background.  According to Facebook chief Zuckerberg, this will take the experience to the "next step".

 The use of video calling services has recently increased in the context of the novel Coronavirus.  Many people have to work at home to avoid infection, in many cases have to stay away from friends, family, relatives.  During this time the reliance on video calling services for communication has increased.

 For now, ‘Room’ can be accessed through Facebook’s main platform and Messenger app.  The 'Messenger Room' service will also be available through WhatsApp and Instagram, CNN reported.  The service will be rolled out in several countries this week and worldwide in the coming weeks.

 Zuckerberg also said that the number of participants in WhatsApp video calls has increased from four to eight.  The update will come next week.  Regarding WhatsApp video calls, Zuckerberg said, "WhatsApp is the only end-to-end encrypted video calling service."
