More Ways to Stay Connected With Facebook

Messenger Rooms by Facebook

In response to the soaring usage of video tools, Facebook recently launched a slew of new video messaging and livestreaming features across its platforms. The move is in line with the social media giant’s growth strategy, which seeks to boost engagement and create cross-company integration across the Facebook platform. For its users though, Facebook’s new Room group video chat feature allows for greater connectivity in a time when video, as a means of staying in touch, is greatly valued — even more so than ever before.

In this way, Facebook has positioned itself as a first choice offering for those looking to stay in touch with family and friends, in addition to users needing a reliable and accessible video conferencing offering.

Facebook is also working to integrate the Rooms feature into its other platforms including WhatsApp, Instagram and Portal. At present, Messenger Rooms also builds on Facebook’s efforts to build out features that emphasize community. In particular, with “open hangouts” if a Facebook group or event has a video chat happening, other users within the group will be able to see the chat within their News Feed, allowing them to join in the call if they wish. Inspired by the likes of Houseparty, open hangouts are an easy and no-pressure way to stay connected.

With Messenger Rooms, Facebook is quickly becoming a one-stop shop for many users, offering an impressive and seemingly ever-growing suite of features for your social media, community and now, video conferencing needs. Businesses large and small can take advantage of the Rooms feature; for many, particularly where cost is a consideration and paid premium offerings like Zoom don’t fit the budget, Facebook is a logical choice. Likewise, for users looking for an easier way to connect with family and friends, without having to teach grandma and grandpa how to work the latest piece of software, Messenger Rooms simply fits the bill.

With the latest video conferencing offering in your quarantine toolbelt, you’ll want to pair that with a tool that will allow you to record important meetings and capture memories being made with family and friends. With Replay Video Capture, you can have peace of mind that you’ll be able to watch and capture all these important moments.

Staying Fit While #stayinghome:

You’d be amazed at the variety of fitness classes that are being offered online. From free fitness routines that you can find on YouTube, to the fitness class offerings that are opening up online, there is no reason to fall off of your fitness routine. But if you are like most, then it’s likely that having a fitness buddy (or a group of them) is your best motivator. Cue up your favorite online workouts, and then hop in a Hangout with your favorite workout partners to keep those endorphins pumping! Don’t forget to record your workout, so that you can practice those moves next time.

Playing Your Part in Interactive Game Nights:

Most games are made to be played with other people. Taking advantage of video conference rooms to hold a game night with your favorite people can be a great way to stay connected. With the option to create a grid of all chat members, it’s a great way to create teams if your group is large enough. Record the action so that you can replay and share your favorite moments. A great app for this is Houseparty, which comes with a selection of games to play with your friends, and its split-screen capabilities keeps games fun and fast-paced for everyone. All you need to do is invite your friends.

Hosting A Karaoke Night:

If you’re looking to keep your spirits up, one way to do it is by hosting a virtual happy hour, featuring your favorite karaoke songs. You may want to share one (or a few) of your favorite seasonal recipes with your friends, and then join each other for a night of belting out your favorite sing-alongs. If you want to mix it up with your mixers, try adding in some trivia about your favorite bands before you start so that you can bring your virtual karaoke night to the next level. Just make sure you don’t miss a moment of it.

It may become the highlight of your week.
