Nowadays when we stay at home, big companies are trying very hard to keep in touch with their users. The world-renowned social media giant Facebook has added a new one to its innovations in the field of communication as of today.
A platform connected to Messenger Rooms
Facebook, which recently introduced Messenger Rooms, a video conferencing platform, announced that they have launched an application called “CatchUp” for voice communication today. This feature is actually connected to Messenger Rooms. With this feature, you can quickly communicate with your friends using the ‘CatchUp’ platform. This feature has something different from Messenger Rooms, which only supports voice calls. In the ‘CatchUp’ application, you can see if your Facebook friends are suitable for voice communication and join your friends’ group calls if they approve.
The company made the following statements:
“Searching has never been easier. You can see who is available among your friends and see who is participating in group calls. Communicate more, think less. You’re free to speak, CatchUp! “
Has state changing feature
The application, developed by Facebook, includes a status change feature to let users know that they are ready to talk to other users and to chat. In this way, you can either look active or be offline.
Voice communication is preferred in areas with limited internet
In regions where internet connection is limited, voice communication is generally preferred instead of video conferences. It will be helpful to have voice communication easier and to have the option of seeing when people are open to voice chat. The famous application developed by Facebook is currently being tested on both iOS and Android in the USA.
