Facebook has rolled out a new feature in both iOS and Android apps that can allow users to add more friends and family members to a live audio and video chats in Messenger.

With the update, users need not hang up and manually add people into a conversation before restarting the call. 

"We're excited to share a small new feature that will hopefully have a big impact to make your video and audio chats easier and faster than ever," Sarah Morris, Product Manager of Messenger, wrote in a blog post on Wednesday. 

Earlier, to turn a one-on-one video or audio chat into a group chat, users had to hang up, start a new conversation from your inbox -- either by creating an entirely new message or by searching for an old one -- and then turn that conversation into a call. 

While in a video chat or on a voice call, tap the screen, select the "add person" icon and choose who you want to join. 

All the filters and effects would be available and after the chat ends, a group chat is created automatically in a user's inbox.

Users need to download the latest version of Messenger to get the feature.
