After the release of Facebook Messenger Rooms in April, the company is now adding a new screen-sharing feature for the app on both Android and iOS, and on Messenger Rooms on the desktop. Users will now be able to share their screens with a maximum of 8 people on the app and 16 people on Messenger Rooms. Messenger Rooms also gives Facebook members the option to create public or private video chat rooms that can hold up to 50 people for an unlimited amount of time. Its closest rival,  Zoom, calls can hold up to 100 participants for 40 minutes. You can even join a Messenger Room if you don’t have a Facebook account. Also, WhatsApp for Android beta now comes with a shortcut to Facebook Messenger Rooms.

Facebook will also add the ability to control who can share their screen in Rooms and expand the number of people users can share their screens with up to 50 others within Messenger Rooms, soon. Room creators will be also able to decide if they want to limit the ability to screen share to just themselves or to all users when creating a room and during the call as well. In a blog post, the company said, “Screen sharing lets you share a live view of your screen so you can share virtually anything together. Whether you want to share memories from your camera roll, shop together online, co-browse social media, and more — screen sharing makes it easy to stay connected and close with your loved ones, even when you’re physically apart. “

Facebook is also adding a live streaming feature on Facebook and on Instagram. Called Live With That, users can invite other people to stream with them. They also recently jumped into the world of gaming with Facebook Gaming. You can check that out here
