The common videotelephony application, Zoom is constantly facing allegations for its security issues. Facebook, the social media giant, has been busy trying to get a slice of the telephony industry. The launch of Messenger rooms seems to have done wonders for the company. The powerful videoconferencing tool which allows 50 participants at a time is now available in all devices. Previously the Messenger room was available for WhatsApp web version only.
But the announcement of the Messenger room has now become official. According to a report from WAbetainfo, the rooms are available for android devices too. Users can now use multiple Facebook products at a time and jump directly into Messenger rooms without any problem.

During the first release of Messenger rooms, Facebook promised about the integration of the features with Portal, Instagram, Messenger, and even WhatsApp. The company is definitely not wasting any time as far as WhatsApp is concerned.
