As we all know that since the time Facebook entered our lives it has made constant efforts to make digital socialization convenient, fun, and interesting. Even during this pandemic, Facebook was on a constant quest of looking for options to keep people connected which was the need of the hour. Facebook Messenger Room was the solution to their quest. When the world used various apps and software like Google Meet, Google Duo, WhatsApp, Zoom, Houseparty, etc. to connect during the quarantine times; Facebook had to come forward with new fun, interesting, interactive update. As a result, the Messenger Room came into existence.
Let’s look at the cool features of this exciting new Facebook update.
