Facebook Enables 50-Person Live Streams With Messenger
Facebook already lets users live-stream video on the social network, but they currently can only invite one person to co-broadcast. Streaming a live video from Messenger Rooms means that users will be able to broadcast a chat with up to 50 people.
Messenger Rooms are joinable group video calls that make it easy to spend quality time with friends, loved ones and people who share your interests. Create a room that can go live right from Facebook or Messenger web, and invite anyone to join, even if they don’t have a Facebook account. As a room creator, you can broadcast your room to a Profile, Page or Group, and invite people to tune in.
Here is how you can broadcast live to Facebook from Messenger Rooms?
- From your Messenger Room, click in the upper right.
- Optionally, give your live video a title.
- Select where you’d like to broadcast your live video (to your timeline, a Page you manage, or in a group).
- Select your audience.
- Click Next.
- Wait for participants to confirm or leave the room. Note: The room cannot broadcast live until this step is completed. The room creator can remove participants who do not respond.
- Click Start.
- When you want to end your broadcast, click in the upper right, then click End
