Facebook launches drop-in video chat Rooms to rival Houseparty

Launching today on mobile & desktop in English speaking countries, you can start a video chat Room that friends can discover via a new section above the News Feed or notifications Facebook will automatically send to your closest pals. You can also just invite specific friends, or share a link anyone can use to join your Room. For now, up to 8 people can join, but soon increasing to 5, making it a more legitimate alternative to Zoom. And more importantly, users will soon be able to create and discover Rooms through Instagram, WhatsApp & Portal, plus join them from the web without an account, making this Facebook’s first truly interoperable product
