All you have to do is send the link that the Messenguer Rooms application gives you to the people you want to join the video chat or video room, regardless of whether they have a Facebook account or not.
You can invite people through Whatsapp, Instagram and the Facebook portal.

More than 700 million users daily use Whatsapp and Messenger to call. In several countries, the flames have doubled since the Covid-19 outbreak began, “said Zuckerberg.
Lastly, he pointed out that this new product can help people to be closer and help them to be more present with the people that users appreciate during this period of health contingency.
I hope to have Rooms and the rest of their functions in their hands soon, and to hear what they think of them, “he concluded.
