The new update will transform the traditional messaging app into a more functional web app allowing users to meet and make video calls for personal and official matters. Currently, if you wish to make a video conferencing call, you can click on “Create a room” which promptly takes you to Facebook Messenger.

The functions are already available on the mobile app, and having them on the web version means users who prefer to use a bigger screen can have more functions on the app.

WABetaInfo says that the feature is currently under development and is still being tested. If the test is successful, you should expect the update to be released to a wider audience.
