The feature introduction was initially announced at the Facebook’s annual developers conference F8. To know whether one has received the feature or not, they could start a normal video call. If they have got the feature, an option would automatically appear—the option would be of “add participant”, as informed by Business Today.

Many other updates were also announced by the social messaging application for group chats including the group descriptions, group catch-on—an option like that of Facebook to “pin” one message at top of the group so that the new group members or the ones who join in on the ongoing conversation could understand that what is going on, admin rights and the ability to play YouTube and Facebook videos within the text messaging app’s platform.
