Communicating with our friends and loved ones in large groups is now far from being a dream as Facebook launches the group calling feature of its Messenger App. The new function, which has been rolled out globally on April 24, allows up to 50 participants to engage in a call made over the internet.
With group call, Facebook Messenger is strategically positioning itself side by side messenger apps like Viber, WhatsApp, and WeChat. This is welcome news for those who are online practically 24/7: Instead of using a phone (and get soaring high phone charges, especially if you and your BFFs are on different mobile networks!) to share the latest chika with their barkada, they can now save by just using internet connectivity (WiFi, of course, or your unli data plan). Heck, even teachers holding online classes, and bosses holding online meetings, will surely benefit from Facebook Messenger’s new function.
In order to use group call, users simply have to tap the phone icon, and select which members from the group chat she wants to include in the group call. Easy peasy, right?
