Facebook has been adding all sorts of features to its chat app recently, including classic arcade games, and a new camera with art and 3D effects.
Today, the social networking giant introduces the ability to video chat in groups, which it describes as the most requested Messenger feature ever.
Facebook explains that Group Video Chat is “super easy to use (and, of course, free over Wi-Fi!). You can see up to six people at a time… but don’t worry if your group is a little larger because up to 50 friends can join in and choose to just listen in and join via voice, or be on camera. Once more than 6 people are on the call, just the dominant speaker is shown to all participants”.
To use it you’ll need to running the latest version of Messenger. The feature is only available on iOS for now, but it’s coming to Android “soon”.
