Now more than ever, people are using technology to stay in touch with the people they care about, even when physically apart. Over the past month, we saw more than a 100% increase in people using their desktop browser for audio & video calling on Messenger.

So… Because of privacy concerns around Zoom sending video chat information to Facebook, people should switch to Facebook's video chat platform instead? 🤔
@williamwright yes, that speeds up data transmission by bypassing an intermediate data collector :-))
It's laughable that Facebook is touting their answer to Zoom as being more privacy-minded.
Will it have a unique link that other users can click into?
@alexander_e_alvarado after downloading it, it doesn't look like it does. It's basically just Messenger for macOS/Windows.
Somehow I completely missed this announcement.
Google is missing a prime opportunity to fulfill the promise to make Meet & Chat available to consumers here. Aside from that, FB Messenger is the only platform my parents reliably use, so I am kinda stuck being there. Maybe I should just buy them iPhones so we can use facetime instead.
@joshuatalley I feel stuck as well because FB Messenger is all that my clients use. Ughhhh.
