Great news: Facebook Messenger launches a new group-calling feature

Still no video-chatting option, though

Most Popular

Great news if you spend half your life on Facebook Messenger typing lengthy messages to your pals, as you can now make life that much easier for yourself by using their brand new group-call feature.

The update is apparently coming to iOs and Android users in the next 24 hours, and will mean a phone icon will turn up in all your group chats for you to take the conversation to an actual speaking level.

Messenger's chief, David Marcus explained the whole thing in Facebook post: "From any group conversations, just tap on the phone icon to initiate a group call. You can then manage individual participants on the next screen."

According to Mashable, the limit on people who can get involved in the group call is 50 participants, but really, who actually has 50 best friends to talk to in the first place. Not us.

Exciting stuff, though, right?
