Instagram has announced its integration with Messenger Rooms, Facebook’s new group video calling service. We tell you how to create your room in a few clicks to start a video chat with up to 50 people.

Since the confinement began, video calling services have experienced rapid growth. Social distancing measures have made video chat one of the most used tools to be close to our loved ones, and technology companies are taking advantage of this trend to launch their own alternatives or promote their existing services.

Facebook did not want to miss this opportunity and a few days ago launched Messenger Rooms, its tool for group video calls to stand up to Zoom, Google Meet and other similar platforms that Lets you start a video chat with a maximum of 50 people.


If you are away from your friends, family or colleagues, this is no excuse for not maintaining communication with them. Here are five applications that allow you to make group video calls to continue talking to these people.

When he presented the tool, Facebook said that he was considering the possibility of integrating it with other services, such as WhatsApp and Instagram. WhatsApp has already started to implement this integration, and now it’s Instagram’s turn.

All users of the social network can create their own room to make group video calls from this moment. If you want to create yours, you can do it in a very simple way in a couple of clicks.

The first thing you have to do is enter the app and go to Direct by clicking the paper plane icon. Then click on the video camera icon and you will see that At the top you now have the option to create a room. Click on it and then click on the button to create the room with the associated Facebook account.

Then select the contacts you’d like to invite to the group video call, or tap Skip to skip this step. Once this is done, Instagram will give you the link of your room, which you can share with the people you want.

Whoever has the link will not need to have an account on Instagram or Facebook, they can access the room without any requirement through their browser. Of course, in order to enter it is essential that you enter first.
