Facebook Messenger now lets you add more people to in-progress calls
Facebook Messenger now lets you add more people to a voice or video call without hanging up first. The new feature is available with the latest Android and iOS Messenger update.
Previously, users who wanted to turn a one-on-one call into a group call needed to end the call, then go through the process of starting another call.
While a relatively small update, letting people add more friends to in-progress calls better positions Facebook Messenger to compete against Skype, Google Hangout, Line and other VoIP call providers that already give users the option, as well as group calling apps like Houseparty.
