Facebook Messenger now allows you to add more friends and family members to your audio and video chats while they are still in progress. With a new feature introduced this week, you can add people to ongoing audio or video call while you are still talking, rather than having to hang up and manually add people into a conversation before restarting the video or voice call.
To add a friend or family member while you are on a video call, tap on the screen and select the new "add person" icon, then tap on the people you would like to add to the group chat. After you have hung up, you can message everyone in the conversation in an automatically created group chat in your Facebook inbox.
The feature is available on both Android and iOS. Group chat on Messenger allows you to see up to six people at a time, but up to 50 people can join the call. Once more than six people are on a call, the main person talking is shown on-screen to everyone.
Try it out and let us know what you think about the feature.
