Earlier this year, Facebook had kicked off the most awaited personal video calling feature giving a tough competition to other similar applications like Skype. However, the social media platform has now started group video calling for the iOS, Android and PC users globally, allowing them to chat with up to 50 participants at one shot.

The newly introduced feature will enable users to plan trips and more such group activities in a better and systematic manner. However, there lies one key drawback of the group video call. To be specific, a user can be added to the video conversation, even without his/her approval.

Along with this, Facebook also started with live audio streaming, pretty similar to that of the live video feature available. The live audio broadcast feature will offer an alternative streaming option to the users as it works even with limited internet connectivity, unlike the video calling feature. However, similar to live video, the newly developed live audio feature will also allow users to post live reactions and comments on the streaming.
