Posted on Apr 3, 2020

Facebook has introduced Messenger's desktop app, which aims to facilitate unlimited free group video calls.

Computers and desktops that work on Windows and Apple's Mac operating system can be installed on the app that will connect to the mobile app.

Facebook reported in March that its messaging service on desktop browsers increased the number of users using audio and video calls by 100 percent.

This new desktop app will make it easier to make audio and video calls with friends and relatives, since you won't have to bother finding tabs in the browser.

Various companies like Zoom and Slack are also working to improve the video chat service.

Zoom has promised users that it is reviewing security reviews, while Slick made the Microsoft Teams video call option part of its service.

Facebook Messenger is working with governments around the world to curb rumors about the Corona virus.

An information hub has been introduced to facilitate chat bots for this purpose.

This information hub also aims to prevent the spread of false information online.

The messenger statement said that the center would provide users with resources to help them connect with their friends, family, office colleagues, students, teachers and others during home quarantine.

Messenger has also decided to reduce the number of forwarded messages to prevent rumors and misinformation about the Corona virus from spreading.

A feature is being worked on under which the user will not be able to send a message to more than 5 people, making the spread of rumors difficult.

This feature is not currently introduced, but Facebook has confirmed that it is being tested inside the company.

Earlier, on March 19, Facebook announced the introduction of the Corona Virus Information Center newsfeed on top.

This information center is a new feature of Facebook aimed at spreading the useful information provided by governments and medical researchers regarding the virus while minimizing the spread of misinformation.

This information center will be updated in real time, while new information and suggestions will be provided from other official sources, including the World Health Organization.

Similarly, Facebook banned ads for the treatment of the Corona virus, while the World Health Organization announced a $ 200 million advertising site.

WhatsApp introduces the WhatsApp Corona virus patch on its website to help more people access authentic information about the Corona virus, where people have access to accurate information about the rapidly spreading epidemic worldwide. 

The Corona virus information feature introduced by the WhatsApp has been presented not only with the support of global healthcare organizations, but also by the messaging application to ensure accurate information is provided in this feature by several fact checker organizations. 

But in addition to providing accurate information to millions of WhatsApp users, the World Health Organization has also introduced a Health Alert or Chatbot that provides statistics, answers to various questions and other information.

For this purpose, save the phone message to +41 79 893 1892 and send hi message on it, opening the menu in front of you, which can be accessed through various emojis.
