In this post, we will see how to create Messenger Rooms from WhatsApp. We all know that Facebook is adding many new features to its platform to enhance user experience. Some of the recently added features were Personalized Facebook Avatar, Slideshow, Temporary Profile Picture, List Posts, and so on. A few months back, they have also introduced a feature called “Rooms” for there Messenger. This feature allows you to do group video chats within the Messenger app.
As you might know Faceboook owns WhatsApp. That is why they have integrated a new feature in WhatsApp using which you can directly create Messenger Rooms without leaving WhatsApp. You can then share the room link to your WhatsApp chats and start group video calling.
Here’s how to do that.
How to Create Messenger Rooms from WhatsApp?
You can create Messenger Rooms using the WhatsApp app on your phone as well as WhatsApp Web. Let me show you how to do that on your phone.
Step 1: To get started, simply open WhatsApp on your phone and choose any of the chats. For example, if you want to invite a friend named “John” to the Messenger Room, then open the chat with John.
Step 2: After that, tap on the “Attachment” icon at the bottom. Once you do that, you will see a new option named, “Room”.
Step 3: Now, select this option and a popup will appear asking you to “Continue in Messenger”. Simly select this option to proceed.
Step 4: When you do that, it will open up Facebook Messenger and you can see the option to create a room. Select the “Create Room as [Your Username]” option, and it will start a room for you.
Step 5: Now, you will see the option to share the Messenger Room link on WhatsApp. Select the option and the link can be sent to John or any other users you want on your WhatsApp chat list.
The same option is available on WhatsApp Web.
So, this is how you can create Messenger Rooms from WhatsApp. I think this feature will help those who mostly prefers WhatsApp for chat instead of Messenger. In a situation where they want to make a group video call, they can simply start a room without leaving WhatsApp.
