Facebook Messenger will let you talk to Radom Strangers with Messenger Rooms very soon



If you are one those who likes to talk to random strangers in the wild about any particular topic, then you will probably like what is coming your way from Facebook Messenger. It is because the Facebook Messenger app will allow you to talk to random strangers very soon via a service called as Messenger Rooms. Sounds quite familiar? Yes, why not. If in case you remember Facebook Rooms app, then yes this should sound very familiar to you. Well, Facebook Rooms app is something which the company killed back in December last year.

Coming back to what Messenger rooms are going to be, it is basically a public chat room where you can talk about a particular topic. Now why this you may ask? Well, not everyone has similar interests right? So when you talk to your friends on Facebook, your interests may differ, and one might not enjoy the same old conversation and hence for such people, talking to even strangers will common interests will sound better. Here the area of interest will be set by the room moderator who creates the group.

This might sound very similar to Reddit in more than one way, but here the total number members per room are capped to 250. This number may increase in future as this is being used by more number of users but as of now this is what differentiates it from Reddit. Facebook Product Manager Drew Moxon quoted –

“Group chats today are focused on people you know — friends and family — and what we’ve found by talking to users is there’s a lot of need for conversations about specific topics.[Rooms] will be for topic-based conversations and so people can talk with others, they may not know.”

Now, there are a lot of things to be considered and taken care here. First of all, what about privacy and security? When you are in a chat room with a stranger, then the chances are that he/she might try to talk to you into something that you don’t want to do. And also, there are other things like someone going off topic or choosing to say something offensive, etc. Well, in that case, the moderator of the room is free to remove the particular person from the chat room without having to ask anyone.

And for now, do make a note that this feature is currently being tested only in Canada and Australia. And if everything goes alright, then this feature should soon roll out to other global markets as well. And considering the fact that this feature was rumored quite some time back, this global roll-out should be imminent. With that being said, we don’t have any confirmation about the official rollout of the feature as of now. It may take several weeks or if in case anything goes wrong, it could take months as well. If you are interested in this, then stay tuned for more info on this as we will update once we have more info.
