Facebook raises its Zoom game, lets Messenger Rooms broadcast via Live

Zoom has run away with the prize in the last few months for becoming the video calling platform of choice for people confined to their homes, whether they are making work calls or friend calls. No one really talks about Teamsing up (Skyping, perhaps?), or Hangoutsing or Meeting, or indeed Roomsing. But many people talk about Zooming, even when theyre not using Zoom to do it.
Today Facebook added in a new feature to its own contribution to the video chat landscapethat should lead, if not immediately to more usage, more engagement when Messenger Rooms does get used.
The social network has announced that people using Messenger Rooms the video chat software that lets people create calls with up to 50 people via a link (no Facebook or Messenger account required to join the call) can now choose to broadcast that Rooms chat to Live, the feature in Facebook that lets people broadcast directly through Groups, Pages and in timelines via your Profile.
