Facebook Messenger Group Video Chat Feature Goes Live

"We're delighted to bring you the ability to chat face-to-face with those who matter to you most, wherever they are", Taine said.

The director Gareth Edwards said Lucas, who sold Lucasfilm to Disney in 2012, has approved of the film, reported ET online. Ahead of each major release, Disney is especially deft at getting the promotional stars to align.

You have a group video chat in your very own hands.

To sum up the feature, anyone and nearly everyone can get into a group video chat simultaneously, with the service supporting up to 50 people connected to the same chat.

Like this? Come and check us out on Snapchat Discover. The best part, though, is that you can have a video call with up to 50 people at a time...

To get started, everyone in the group will need the newest version of Facebook Messenger.

Messenger has had video calling before, of course. Until now, a user could call another person, maybe a family member or friend, but then the duo couldn't add someone else - perhaps grandma or another roommate. It's easy to jump into an existing conversation or start a new one by simply tapping on the video icon on the upper right of the screen. All the participants will be notified to go on video and can join in when they're ready.
