Facebook Groups now supports 250-person live chats

Posted in Facebook, Messenger, and Social Network

Facebook is adding a new feature to Groups chat: giant, intergroup Messenger chats with the option to add up to 250 people live chats.

“Facebook Groups” gives the 1.4 billion active users of the app a platform to collectively plan events, arrange in-person meetings, or have deeper discussions with their close ones or people of similar interests.

In addition, users can also join in voice and video calls that support up to 50 people simultaneously.

In-Group chats can be viewed by all members of the group, and anyone already in the group can join or be invited.

Crucially, Facebook won’t spam you with notifications for each message in the thread until you accept the invitation to join, and users will be able to further filter that by only getting notifications when they’re directly @-mentioned.

Group admins would have the authority to always shut down a group chat or limit their creation to only other admins, the report added.

Facebook communities will likely enjoy this new form of direct communication.
