Last month, Facebook had announced Messenger Rooms which allow group video calls of up to 50 people with no time limit.

People can create a room right from Messenger or Facebook, and invite anyone to join the video call, even if they don't have a Facebook account.

In Rooms, the users can post links in their News Feed or in Groups or event pages.
