Facebook Messenger Rooms is a video chat serviced rolled out by Facebook to compete with Zoom, Google Meet, Skype, Microsoft Teams and other video conference services. There’s no time limit on how long a room can be kept open, and you can host up to 50 people in a room at a time. If there’s someone in your Facebook Messenger room you don’t want to be there, removing them is easy, as long as you’re the host. The process to remove someone from your Facebook Messenger room is the same whether you’re using the Facebook Messenger app for iPhone, iPad and Android devices, or the website.
