However, this feature of the beta version is not working right now, which means that work is still going on on this feature and WhatsApp wants to make it completely bug free. The report states that this shortcut will be available on chat/group share sheets. Currently, information about this feature is presented when the user selects the ‘Room’ option.

This added Rooms messenger is protected by encryption and privacy controls, although the video call is not end-to-end encrypted. The publication also informed that this room shortcut will be added to the call tab.

To remind, Facebook had recently announced that the company is rolling out its Messenger Rooms in some countries. Like Zoom Cloud Meetings and Houseparty apps, in this too users can join group calls with the help of direct link without using Facebook account. Facebook also announced that after this feature, users will be able to add more than 50 people in video calls.

It is noteworthy that this announcement made by Facebook has come at a time when people of most countries including India are locked in their homes due to Corona virus lockdown. Due to being at home, people are now resorting to video calling apps to meet outsiders, the increasing use of Zoom app is the biggest example of this.
