The severe global pandemic conditions and prolonged lockdowns have made lives exceptionally miserably. The world has shifted everything to home, from educational institutes to workplaces. During this tough time, video calling has been a great help for everyone. From seeing and talking to your loved ones over the screens even after being miles apart to taking classes online through video conferencing, from attending office meetings from home to work with your clients, everything has been made digital.
To cope up with the ongoing crisis, Facebook planned a partnership with some renowned video conferencing applications and make it available on its portal soon. Facebook, in one of their recent tweets, said that they had noticed a significant increase in video calling through messenger, including conference calls. The company also says that it is adding Zoom, GoToMeeting, BlueJeans, and Webex application on its portal devices that support conference calls.
This new feature is expected to be launched somewhere in September. The thing which is confusing several people is that why Facebook decides to join hands with the companies that strive hard to compete with tech giant Facebook.
The aim of introducing this feature is to help the troubled people struggling to have feasible official video conference calls with high-quality videos. No time could be better than the current Covid-19 pandemic to roll this feature out. In addition, Facebook also plans to create a separate portal for business communication to maintain privacy.
