Facebook CatchUp Features

The Facebook CatchUp app's primary differentiating feature from the Messenger is the availability status of a user. This app will allow you to set a status so that a caller will know if you are busy or available at that point of time.

As per the company, this app is being developed in order to overcome the limitations with the standard phone calls (availability of the user). It is also said to offer improved group calling experience.

Facebook has also revealed that this app has been under development for quite some time now and has been developed by the company's internal R&D department. The onset of coronavirus outbreak that led to an emergency lockdown globally is what made the company to push its development.

It is currently available for the users in the US and can be downloaded on both Android as well as iOS devices. Facebook is said to be waiting for this app's response amongst the users. If it is well-received, then the company might bring it for the remaining global markets as well. But, nothing sure can be said just yet.

Recently, the company had introduced a new service called the Messenger Rooms which is designed to take on Zoom video conferencing tool. Its highlight is the support for up to 50 participants in a group video call with no specific time limit for a call.

The company also announced at the launch of the Messenger Rooms that this feature will be integrated into Instagram as well as WhatsApp in the coming days. The former has also got this new feature, while the latter is expected to receive it sometime soon.
