You can now create Messenger Rooms through Instagram and April, Facebook introduced a new Messenger Rooms feature for its Facebook and Messenger apps, allowing their users to start and share ‘rooms’ for videos calls with up to 50 people.

To create a Messenger Room in Instagram, simply start a video chat in Instagram Direct like you normal would but tap ‘Create a Room’ before you select the participants.

To be clear, rooms that you create in Instagram and WhatsApp don’t reside in these apps.

After creating a room, there will always be an option for you to continue the chat in the Messenger app.

Also, be aware that Messenger Rooms’ video chats aren’t end-to-end encrypted.
