GROUP VIDEO CALLS
Chatting with all of your family at once has never been easier
It today’s age it’s more than likely that most people you know or meet will be on Facebook. What a lot of people don’t realise or know is that by using a wifi connection, Facebook messenger and your phone or computer, you can have a video call with up to 5 other people, all for free!
To get started, you’ll need the latest version of Messenger. All you have to do is jump into an existing group conversation, or create a new one. Then tap on the video icon on the upper right of the screen to enter the video chat and everyone in the group will be notified.
Each person can join when they are ready with just one tap. So you don’t have to worry about calling somebody and getting a blank screen! It works just like a regular phone call would except with a camera and more people.
Once you’ve done catching up with with the video call, simply press the red phone button in the bottom right corner to hang up. This will just disconnect you while everybody else will still be able to talk.
So next time you’re interstate or overseas and need to schedule the family call – you could try a Group Call via Facebook!
